Wales midfielder Aaron Ramsey (@aaronramsey) gives his thoughts on the defeat in Macedonia: “Frustrating not to get anything from the game but want to thank the fans who travelled out there. Really appreciate your support.”
Southampton defender Luke Shaw (@Luke_shaw) is thrilled for his team-mate: “Seriously though Lambert deserves this so much, so good seeing him in a England shirt playing as well as he has.”
