James Chester says Wales will test anyone at Euro 2016 if they reproduce the form which swept aside Russia.

Wales’ 3-0 victory on Monday night saw them leapfrog England to take top spot in Group B and secure a last-16 tie with one of the best third-placed teams in Paris on Saturday evening.

It remains a complicated picture for Wales who will not discover their second-round opponents for another 24 hours, but the camp are in relaxed mood after spending a day with their families in Toulouse following the Russia rout.

“It’s far too confusing for me,” Chester said of the various last 16 permutations.

“I just go where I’m told and if we perform like we did against Russia and keep clean sheets, which is another bonus, then we’re confident that we can make it difficult for anybody.

“The way we dug in for the game and to lose so late on against England was a big kick in the stomach. But we knew that result wouldn’t define the group.

“I said after the England game from what we’d seen of Russia I was confident we could beat them.”
