An emotional Chris Coleman admitted it had been "an incredibly tough night" after watching his Wales side lose 1-0 to Costa Rica in an understandably subdued Gary Speed Memorial Match at Cardiff City Stadium on Wednesday.

It was always going to be a difficult fixture for the Wales players and management given the nature of the occasion as they remembered their former manager, who died in November.

Coleman said: "It was difficult. But it wasn't about me or the players tonight it was about Gary Speed."
