Burns Wins Third Cap as Baggott Nets Second International Goal
Tuesday, 14th Jun 2022 22:21

Wes Burns won his third full cap as Wales were defeated by the Netherlands, while Elkan Baggott netted his second international goal on his 10th appearance for Indonesia in a thrashing of 10-man Nepal which saw them through to the finals of the Asian Cup.

Burns started at left wing-back for Wales and played the first 45 minutes and won his third full cap as the Welsh were defeated 3-2 by the Netherlands in a UEFA Nations Cup tie in Rotterdam.

Centre-half Baggott, 19, started as Indonesia breezed to a 7-0 victory over Nepal, who were reduced to 10 men just after the half hour, in their third and final third round Asian Cup qualifier in Kuwait.

That victory and results elsewhere saw Indonesia through to the finals which will be held between June and July next summer.

Indonesia, who were the runners-up in the group, reach the finals for the fifth time and the first since 2007.

With the Town squad due back at Playford Road for the start of pre-season training next week, it’s likely the duo will be given additional time off having spent the last few weeks with their international squads.

Nepal had a mountain to climb after the red card.

Would have been nice if Wes Burns could have wron a red Welsh shirt with pride, rather than the idiotic decision of Wales to wear yellow.

Burns will be lucky to be on the plane to Qatar after that run out. There are mitigating circumstances but it wasn’t a planned half time substitution. He gave the ball away for the first goal and wasn’t very effective on the left. I know he played well there against Poland but the Netherlands are no Poland. This was a team full of world class talent and I think he got found out a bit defensively especially on his wrong side. He was pinned back a lot of the time because the team struggled for possession so he couldn’t really show off his pace to break behind defenders. I don’t think he stepped into the Dutch penalty area in open play. There are a couple more games before the World Cup so maybe he’ll be in form and get his chance to start on the right and make a point. All that said it’s not as if Wales have to play anyone as good as the Netherlands in the WC group stages anyway!
