England 3-0 Wales

England dominate Wales in a 3-0 win. The Welsh looked to be in the game before Kieffer Moore got taken off but England always looked like the better side throughout the match.

Gareth Southgate will be happy with what he saw from his side as will Ryan Giggs. Despite the comprehensive defeat, Giggs will be happy with his young players’ performances in a difficult match. Giggs’ side had some good spells and created a few good chances just didn’t take them however, he won’t be happy with their defending from crosses.

Wales started strong as they clipped a ball into the path of Tyler Roberts but Bukayo Saka got his head to it. Saka’s clearance went towards the penalty area where Kieffer Moor met it. The volley went sailing over the bar, a great chance squandered by the visitors.

Jack Grealish switched to the right and was met by a through ball. The Aston Villa star put a cross into the penalty area for Dominic Calvert-Lewin who met the cross. Just like he’s been doing all season, Calvert-Lewin buried the header to give England the lead over their rivals.

A long ball from the Welsh backline found Moore. The Welsh had a one-on-one chance that was smothered by Nick Pope, another chance missed.

Moore gets replaced by Neco Williams due too an injury, Wales look blunt going forward.
England look to be patient then pass to Grealish who drives forward.

On this occasion he wins a freekick. Kieran Trippier delivers towards the back post where Conor Coady taps it home to double England’s lead.
England swing a corner in towards the back post for Tyrone Mings. He heads it back across the goal for Danny Ings to perform an overhead kick and score.

England can take this momentum into their next match which is against Belgium in the Nations League.

Whilst Wales will have to pick themselves up as they play the Republic of Ireland in the Nations League on Sunday.
