Wales captain Ashley Williams: 'We have to beat Cyprus'

Wales skipper Ashley Williams says that they must beat Cyprus in tonight's Euro 2016 qualifier at the Cardiff City Stadium.

Wales captain Ashley Williams has said that the team must take all three points from their Euro 2016 qualifier against Cyprus this evening.

Chris Coleman's men currently sit top of Group B following their 2-1 win in Andorra last month and Friday's goalless draw with Bosnia-Herzegovina.

Williams says that Wales will be prepared to deal with the threat that Cyprus pose, after they beat Bosnia 2-1 in September.

"We know especially because we drew the game [against Bosnia] that we need to win this game," Williams told BBC Sport.

"If we want to do anything in the group this is one we must win. We've done a little bit of analysis [on Cyprus]. As players we get our own footage to go through, so we are aware of them.

"We know that they are a dangerous team clearly, with what happened in Bosnia."

Wales will remain top of the group with a win, ahead of their next qualifier against Belgium on November 16.
