Wales captain Ashley Williams: 'We deserve to be here'

Ashley Williams says that Wales deserve to be one win away from Euro 2016 after their 1-0 victory over Cyprus.

Wales captain Ashley Williams has praised his side as a Gareth Bale header gave them a 1-0 win over Cyprus and took them one step closer to qualifying for Euro 2016.

Chris Coleman's side, who had a goal disallowed in the first half, sealed all the points when Bale powered a header home eight minutes from time to leave Wales three points clear at the top of Group B.

"I don't think we played as well as we have done. We had a gameplan to keep it tight," Williams told Sky Sports News.

"It was very hot and Cyprus were bang up for it as we were. It was one of the more difficult games of campaign. We have earned the right to be in this position. Sunday is a chance to get the job done."

Wales can seal qualification to Euro 2016 if they beat Israel at the Cardiff City Stadium on Sunday.
