Wales kept their hopes of qualifying for the 2022 World Cup alive with one of the narrow football scores of qualifying. After a 2-2 draw against the Czech Republic, Kieffer Moore turned in a rebound off an Aaron Ramsey shot to give them the early lead after 11 minutes. They could not double the advantage with Estonia having most of the possession in the second half. Danny Ward who had a howler midweek made three crucial saves in the game to give the Welsh a crucial three points. Wales is now level on 11 points with the Czech Republic with a game in hand over their rivals.
Wales manager Robert Page said: “It’s been a great camp for us. We’re still a young group so I thought the performance we gave in the Czech Republic was outstanding.” he said. “They’re learning from these experiences. We knew we weren’t going to dominate and we knew it was going to be an ugly game. We matched that first and foremost and then we knew with the players we had on the pitch we could cause them problems.”
“I was a little bit frustrated in the first half as we kept the ball well but then caused our own problems at times, giving the ball away too cheaply. In the second half, we had to dig a trench and defend resolutely. Thankfully, we did that.” he added. “Something changed in the second half and it was just one of those days where we needed to dig in.”
