Neil Taylor ready to fight for Wales place

Swansea City defender Neil Taylor says that he does not know whether he or Ben Davies will be Wales's first-choice left-back.

Neil Taylor has said that he is prepared for a competition to earn a place in Wales's starting lineup for the Euro 2016 qualifying campaign.

The Swansea City defender is battling with former club teammate Ben Davies, who joined Tottenham Hotspur over the summer, to be Chris Coleman's first-choice left-back.

The 25-year-old told Sky Sports News: "You'd have to ask the manager the question, but I love coming to Wales every time. I want to play for my country and I'm enjoying my football at the moment.

"There's going to be competition at club and country level for the rest of my career, that's how it works. You've got to be at your best in club football and then hope when it comes to your country you'll be picked.

"I think it was always felt in the summer that either me or Ben would end up leaving because of the situation. We both felt that we needed to be playing. I know from my time out injured a few years back that when you're fit and able to play you need to be playing. That's crucial for any footballer."

Wales face Andorra in their opening match of the qualifying campaign on Tuesday.
