Manager Chris Coleman says Wales must try and move on following their 1-0 defeat to Costa Rica in an emotional Gary Speed Memorial Match at Cardiff City Stadium.

The friendly marked the first time Wales had played since the death of manager Speed in November and several touching tributes were paid to the former Leeds, Everton, Newcastle, Bolton and Sheffield United midfielder.

Coleman, who was visibly emotional during his post-match press conference, said: "Gary would have wanted us to move on. We've all paid our respects and everyone played their part, but we must now look forward. We will move on eventually but I think at the minute maybe we weren't ready to, so we needed to deal with this game."
