Wales v Netherlands 13.11.15 Player Watch- Tom Lawrence

The 21 year old Blackburn forward was handed his first Wales start against the Dutch and certainly wasn’t overawed by the occasion or the opposition. Starting brightly, he was at the heart of Wales’ best attacking opportunities in the early stages of the first half, linking up well with midfielder Joe Allen and was unlucky not to score after  half an hour when his shot dragged just wide of the post.

The youngster had a quieter second half as Holland piled the pressure on Wales forcing them to defend more deeply and leaving him somewhat isolated up front. On the hour mark, he fizzed in an inch perfect cross which team mate and second half substitute George Williams narrowly failed to convert. He delighted the home fans in the Canton End in the dying seconds of the game, still full of running and desire to win his team his team a corner as they searched for an equaliser.

All in all, he will have done his squad chances for Euro 2016 next summer in France no harm with his display tonight.
