Wales captain Ashley Williams admits he was surprised to be asked to lead the side again and has revealed he received congratulations from his predecessor Aaron Ramsey.
Dragons boss Chris Coleman opted to switch the armband from Arsenal midfielder Ramsey to Swansea skipper Williams ahead of the current international break, in which Wales play a double-header of World Cup qualifiers against Scotland at home on Friday and Croatia away on Tuesday.
Asked if had believed the armband would come his way again, Williams said: "Probably not to be honest, because I thought Aaron was doing a good job. I was just concentrating on trying to play my best for Wales. So probably not, but I'm happy."
