Williams aiming to feature

Wales captain Ashley Williams says he will play in the forthcoming World Cup qualifiers with Macedonia and Belgium, if he can.

Last Updated: 08/10/13 at 15:14 Post Comment

Wales manager Chris Coleman has major injury problems for their qualifiers against Macedonia and Belgium, and has already been forced to call up nine replacements.

Williams is the latest doubt, as he is troubled by an ankle ligament problem.

"I want to see the doctor and physios in the next couple of days and see where we are at," he told Sky Sports News.

"But everyone knows me I always try and play though the injury or as many games as I can, so if there is a chance I will definitely play."

Williams admits that his Swansea manager Michael Laudrup is keen for him to sit out the games.

"He knows me as well and he said that he feels I need a rest but if I can play I will, if I can't then I can't," he said - insisting that every international game is important.

"Every game, especially international games for Wales, you always have that feeling that it is a massive for the country.

"They are two massive games, as always, and we don't want to finish on a downer."

Wales' two remaining World Cup qualifiers are live on Sky Sports 3. Coverage of Friday's game against Macedonia begins at 7.30pm, and we're on air at 7.55pm on Tuesday ahead of the Belgium game.

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
