Ledley had been due to get married in Ibiza on Saturday and he confirmed after Wales’ 2-0 semi-final defeat to Portugal that he is still heading to the Mediterranean island to tie the knot with partner Ruby May. It means he will miss the big ‘welcome home’ party in Cardiff on Friday with thousands of fans expected to turn up and salute Chris Coleman’s squad.
"The boys are going back to Wales to see the fans but I’ve got a wedding to attend," said Ledley. "I don’t feel I need to go back and see what we’ve achieved means to the supporters. I know deep down how much their support from back home meant to me.
"I’ve got a wedding to think about. It’s Ibiza for me now."
