    Giggs press conference quotes
    Pleased, concentration against a good side, we showed great character coming back from 1-0 down, more than pleased with the result.
    Few fouls, first half, stopping our flow.
    I was a fine with the referee, very physical game.
    Probably best camp we have had against two good sides
    Couple of half chances second half, Croatia did not really trouble is second half.
    Dan James is fine, passed all concussion tests at half time.
    That point could be vital.
    We need to win our two games, that's all we are all concentrating on.
    Kieffer Moore, watched him 3 or 4 times last year, he was fantastic both games, put a good shift, I was proud of him.
    Great work from Ben, winning the ball, Gareth never lets you down, composure.
    For example Joe Morrell coming was fantastic.
    It was a physical game, they are street wise, I was more with them stopping the flow.
    Ampadu took a knock, he is fine.
    Joe took one for the team, we will miss him, it's a blow, but we must just get on with it.

    Aaron Ramsey was given squad number 10 ahead of the Slovakia game, I am sure there will be fitness update by Ryan Giggs on Saturday.
