Coleman: It's difficult to move on

Chris Coleman admits it has been difficult to remain focused on qualifying for the 2018 World Cup after the excitement of Wales' run at Euro 2016.

Wales reached the semi-finals in France 12 months ago but are struggling to qualify for the World Cup in Russia as they prepare to face Serbia in Belgrade on Sunday.

They are four points behind Serbia after drawing their last four qualifiers.

Wales are 5/2 to draw again on Sunday while they can be backed at 6/1 to beat Serbia.

"I've tried desperately hard, we all have, to move on, but you don't really want to move on," said Coleman.

"When the national anthem started, that's what I'll always remember, the noise.

"The first tournament, the first game, singing the national anthem was as good as it gets.

"If you want that again, we need to take care of this challenge - because if you want to go and sample tournament football, we need to take care of business now."

Gareth Bale and Neil Taylor are suspended for the game, while James Collins, Hal Robson-Kanu, Andy King and Jonny Williams are injured.
