Wales 0-0 Ireland: Coleman happy with team without Gareth Bale

Wales manager Chris Coleman says he was pleased with how his team coped without Gareth Bale in their 0-0 draw with the Republic of Ireland.

The Tottenham winger, who has been the subject of intense transfer speculation, did not play in the friendly because of a minor foot injury.

Swansea captain Ashley Williams was awarded the man-of-the-match award after helping the home side to a rare clean sheet.
