  • Bale to miss Wales’ Nations League clash against Ireland

Ciaran Clark will miss the Republic of Ireland's Nations League showdown with Wales after picking up an injury in training.

For Wales the absences of Gareth Bale, Aaron Ramsey and Ethan Ampadu will come as a relief to Ireland as Ryan Giggs makes five changes to the side that lost 4-1 to Spain with James Chester, Matthew Smith, David Brooks, Tom Lawrence and Tyler Roberts all coming in. It was a really brilliant second-half performance.

The Liverpool loanee thumped a remarkable set-piece past Jose Mourinho's side as Derby County took Manchester United out of the Carabao Cup on penalties.

A statement issued via the Newcastle's website said: "The club has been informed by the Football Association of Ireland that Ciaran Clark will not be fit for his country's UEFA Nations League game against Wales on Tuesday evening". But I was right behind it.

The victory means Wales will be seeded in Pot Two for Euro 2020 qualifying and will now battle for top spot in Group B4 with Denmark.

'We had a young team, it's about them getting on the pitch and getting some minutes, to a man they were brilliant'.

"I said about Thursday against Spain we didn't do the basics, and tonight we did - defending, not giving any chances away, we were a much smaller team but the determination to win the set-pieces was awesome".

Harry Wilson struck a wonderful free-kick to decide a tight contest and captain Ashley Williams led a defensive rearguard late on as Martin O'Neill's side rallied for an equaliser. Ashley Williams was outstanding for 90 minutes.

"He was just magnificent, a real captain's performance. He defended and did all the hard stuff, which then gave us the platform for the chances at the end".
