Despite losing 1-0 to Poland in their final Nations League game. Meaning they are relegated to League B but there were some positive performances. Wales may have lost out to Karol Swiderski’s 58 minute goal. In what was a hard fought Nation League match but three players still stood out for Rob Page’s side. Wales were without many key players during this international window and this gave opportunities to other to stake a claim for places in the World Cup squad.
The Nottingham Forest winger was one of Wales best creative outlets against Poland. Playing on the right Johnson was able to come inside and had several good chances to score. He moved around the pitch well and looked confident to take on Polish players and tested Szczesny. Just after going behind it was Johnson who forced the Polish keeper into a fine save to keep his team in front.
As always Morrell work hard for the whole game playing in a deep laying midfield role. Keeping the ball well and spreading quick and smart passes, helping to link play from defence to attack. He kept the ball well and looked confident when in possession. He kept the side ticking over in the absence of Joe Allen.
Another impressive performance from Roberts in a Wales shirt. Solid and difficult to beat in defence as well as getting forward to support attacks. Had an entertaining battle throughout the game with Piotr Zielinski which went back and fourth. He got forward and got crosses and balls into the box. Yet he was still able to ensure his positioning in defence.
