He said: “I’ve been lucky to have played in a few representative squads in my time but this is by far the most united. We enjoy working together and socialising as a group and there are no cliques.
“That kind of spirit is important during tough competitions and there is a club mentality that has been instilled by the coach, but we all have to take responsibility for making it happen and for pulling together this time next year.”
Jones-Buchanan added: “Sunday is a special day for us and we want to win the tournament with an unbeaten record. France will be smarting and we can expect them to improve on last week.”
