Burns and Baggott Win Caps
Saturday, 11th Jun 2022 23:42

Wes Burns and Elkan Baggott added to their international caps with Wales and Indonesia this evening.

Wing-back Burns came on as a 73rd-minute substitute to claim his second full cap and more than played his part as the Welsh came from behind to grab a notable 1-1 draw with Belgium at the Cardiff City Stadium in the UEFA Nations League.

Town striker David Johnson’s son Brennan scored the leveller with four minutes remaining, the 21-year-old Nottingham Forest frontman's first international goal.

Burns, 27, has a chance of winning his third cap when Wales face the Netherlands in their final Nations League tie of the summer in Rotterdam on Tuesday.

Centre-half Baggott was in the Indonesia XI which lost 1-0 to Jordan in their second third round Asian Cup qualifier in Kuwait. The 19-year-old was winning his ninth full cap.

Indonesia are now second in the group ahead of their final game against Nepal on Tuesday.

Baggott/ Indonesia should win their final game easily. Nepal have a mountain to climb.

How did Wes do, was he played on the left side again?

Great to see Wes doing so well for Wales.
The only downside is the probability that we could lose him for 3/4 weeks during the world cup in November.

I watched the match on S4C and Burns had a good 20 mins. He had about 5 or 6 runs forward with the ball, a couple of touches inside that were applauded but put in one over hit cross. He played in his usual right sided role and dropped back when needed. I think he's definitely got a chance of being in the squad in the winter. Also, got to say also that Wales played a blinder against a good Belgium side so he'd be unlikely to knock anyone out of the starting line up.

My favourite moment listening to the Welsh language commentary was when Ampadu scored a goal (Chalked off by VAR sadly) and through the Welsh you heard 'Yabba Dabba Ampaduuuuu!'
