Coleman wary of ‘cruel game’

 
Chris Coleman has batted away any suggestions Wales will be getting too cocky ahead of Saturday’s last-16 clash in Paris.
A thumping 3-0 victory over Russia on Monday ensured they grabbed top spot in Group B, with England only able to draw 0-0 with Slovakia.
Coleman is keeping his feet on the ground as they prepare for their battle for a quarter-final spot.
“I don’t feel any different in terms of belief in the team,” he said. “I know what they’re capable of and that would be same if they had scraped through.
“But I also know how dangerous football is. You’ve never arrived no matter how many games you’ve played.
“It’s a cruel game. Once you start thinking you’re untouchable, you’re on dangerous ground. Russia was brilliant, we’ll always remember it. It will go down in history.
“But now it’s this next one. It doesn’t matter who it is. It’s all on the day now, there’s no afters, no second bites, you have to bring it on the day.
“We will do what we did before Russia, realise how good we are, accept that responsibility and take it on the pitch.”
