Davies: Wales will cope without star duo

Tottenham defender Ben Davies is confident that Wales are ready to face the Netherlands despite the absence of Gareth Bale and Aaron Ramsey.

The Real Madrid and Arsenal players are both absent through injury for the clash in Cardiff on Friday, but Davies believes that the Dragons have depth beyond the duo, who scored nine of their 11 goals in Euro 2016 qualifying.

"This is definitely a chance to show we're not a one-man or a two-man team which we have been labelled," the 22-year-old left-back said.

"We've lost two very good players, but we don't have any players that are here to make up the numbers, and if they get the opportunity to play they'll do the best they can."

Wales faced the Netherlands last year, losing 2-0 as the Oranje prepared for the World Cup in Brazil, but this time round the Welsh have qualified for the finals in France while the Dutch are set to miss out after a woeful qualification campaign.

"We were a preparation game for them last time and now it's their turn," Davies added. "They've got some very good players we have to be aware of and they'll be out to prove a point.

"The finals are on all our minds because every player has to prove themselves to be in that final squad."
