Ben Davies has revealed that he has not contacted Tottenham team-mate Matt Doherty following his Euro 2020 play-offs penalty miss.

The Spurs right-back saw his spot kick cannon back off the crossbar on Thursday night when Slovakia went through 4-2 on penalties, after he became the second Ireland player to miss after Alan Browne’s effort was saved by goalkeeper Marek Rodak.

Later today, Davies will come up against Doherty when Wales and Ireland square off at the Aviva Stadium on the UEFA Nations League.

Wales currently top Group B having won both of their opening matches, while Ireland are still seeking their first win of the campaign.

Davies believes that some things are better left alone rather than go over old ground while also revealing that he has already built up a good relationship with the former Wolves player following his summer transfer.

Doherty has started in three of Tottenham’s opening four fixtures this season and was on the bench for the 6-1 thrashing of Manchester United at Old Trafford (transfermarkt).

“I haven’t spoken to him since the penalty,” Davies was quoted as saying by the Belfast Telegraph.

“Sometimes things are better left. But I get on really well with him.

“Since he’s come to Spurs he’s been excellent. We spoke about the game last week and it will be a good competitive match against them.”
