Ruben Colwill scored his first international goal to help Wales produce one of the close football scores of the midweek friendly action. Thomas Soucek put the visitors ahead in the 32nd minute before Colwil equalized two minutes later. Colwill scored his first FA Cup goal last month. The result meant that Wales is now unbeaten in their last 18 home games. Robert Page had stressed he saw the friendly as an exercise to give younger players an opportunity. Aaron Ramsey was not included in the squad just a week before the Old Firm Derby against title rivals Celtic.
Wales manager Rob Page: “We used it as an exercise to look at some of the younger players. When you’ve got a front three like that you know you’re going to pose a threat and cause problems. Rubin’s intelligent at 10, Brennan’s in great form in the Championship, and Rabbi’s playing well abroad (in Belgium), creating chances and scoring goals.”
“I didn’t need any convincing with Brennan, he’s humble and not getting carried away with what he’s done. He’s a bright spark, as is Rubin who took the goal really well, and Rabbi with his pace was also a threat. There were some big performances out there. I said before the game there was an opportunity there for the players. We’ve got a massive month in June with the World Cup play-off final and four Nations League games, so we’re going to need a big squad.”
