Ryan Giggs reveals dressing room message to his players after Croatia loss

Following their 2-1 loss to Croatia in the Euro 2020 qualifiers, Ryan Giggs feels his Wales side missed a golden opportunity.

Wales created numerous openings against the 2018 World Cup finalists and set-up a tense finish as David Brooks netted his first international goal in the 77th minute in Osijek after an Ivan Perisic strike along with a James Lawrence own-goal had put the hosts 2-0 up. Wales now sit third on Group E after winning their opening game against Slovakia.

In a press conference following their defeat to Croatia, Giggs revealed his message to his troops in the dressing room, "I said to the players, we've missed a chance, especially with the way we ended the game, we ended so strong. When it gets stretched, Croatia had chances on the break, but you expect that.

"We looked the fitter side at the end. We looked like the ones pushing and it looked like Croatia were hanging on. When you end the game like that and have the chances we had, you've got to be disappointed and it's definitely one that got away."
