Gareth Bale was left heartbroken by Wales' defeat against England on Wednesday, and now he's revealed what he did in the aftermath of the loss.
The Real Madrid superstar opened the scoring against the Three Lions before the half-time break in Lens with a superb long range free-kick that left goalkeeper Joe Hart red faced.
However, Leicester striker Jamie Vardy equalised in the second half, and fellow substitute Daniel Sturridge snatched all three points at the death with a close range finish.
Despite the loss, Wales are still well placed to qualify for the knockout stages having claimed a 2-1 win in their tournament opener against Slovakia. Chris Coleman's side are in second place behind England, who top Group B with four points.
Bale struggled to hide his disappointment after the loss against England having spent much of the build-up hyping up the clash between two rivals, and now he's spoken out about how he coped in the aftermath.
The Real Madrid man admitted that the manner of the loss hurt as much as the scoreline itself, and revealed that Coleman gave his players a day off to clear their heads - which gave them the opportunity to indulge with a meal of burgers and chips.
After the game we were all very disappointed, especially to lose it in that manner,” the former Tottenham ace said.
“We decided to go out as a team, with the staff. We had a nice meal out, got away from the hotel a bit and changed the scenery. A burger and chips seem to have helped!
Wales are featuring in their first international tournament since 1958, and a draw against Russia in their final game should be enough to ensure their progress to the next stage.
Bale has been key to their success so far having scored two of their three goals, both of which have come from long-range free-kicks.
Do you think Wales deserved to get a point from their match against England?
