Tom Lawrence on song to move Wales closer to World Cup play-off

07 October 2017

Reading midfielder and Wales global Dave Edwards has claimed Joe Allen is one of Europe's best players, ahead of their final two World Cup qualifying fixtures.

Serbia are still favourites to win the group with a final home game against Georgia on Monday, while Wales play third-placed Ireland in what looks like becoming a shoot-out to see who finishes as runners-up to claim a probable playoff spot. "We'll do the best we can so that his Spanish improves and after all else, that he loses his fear of using it in everyday situations". 'At first we didn't look into it but then gradually a few photos got together and it was bad, so we just thought we may as well keep it the same.

Wales are keen to play down any talk of a club versus country row and boss Chris Coleman said: "He's not trained with us or been in any session with us".

"The word I used after leaving it late in Moldova, when Hal Robson-Kanu scored his first goal since that special strike versus Belgium, was relief, more than satisfaction".

We Have A Small Percentage Of Winning Against The USA- Indian Coach
There was talk ahead of the World Cup about the weather and the pollution in Delhi, and that question was posed to both coaches . Unlike the senior tournament, the Federation Internationale de Football Association U-17 World Cup results are hard to predict.

Unbeaten Wales were ninth best going into the match in Tbilisi but victory lifted them to sixth in that complex table.

"Normally after 60 minutes he's calling for a stretcher so I think he was surprised that he was still on the pitch after 75 minutes but we needed him at the time". "But it's not like when I first played for Wales, because the gaffer has options and players who can come in, do a job and help to get those three points".

Chris Coleman's men will now be interested observers as Group D leaders Serbia, who are one point ahead, travel to Austria later on Friday.

Wales remained resilient throughout, though, and despite a number of nervy moments, namely one nearing the 80 minute when Ashley Williams and Wayne Hennessey had to combined to keep the ball out, the visitors survived. "We can't go into it thinking about the consequences for other games afterwards".

Pulisic central midfield vs Panama; Besler, Gonzalez in back
Wood was tripped in the area by substitute Armando Cooper and Altidore stepped up and cheekily chipped the ball down the middle. A draw means the Yanks will need a win in Trinidad and Tobago on Tuesday and a Panama loss or draw versus visiting Costa Rica.

Irish fans keenly observed the Welsh game in Georgia on Friday night with a hope that their Irish Sea neighbours would provide a timely cock-up and the goalless first half provided joy. Now we need another.

Gareth Southgate could use the Three Lions' final group game as an opportunity to experiment.

Ashley Williams, who has endured a hard time at club level with Everton, was a huge presence in central defence.
