Gareth Bale is Wales' real free-kick specialist, says Harry Wilson

Gareth Bale is Wales' real free-kick specialist, says Harry Wilson

Wilson also netted an incredible 32-yard set piece for Derby to help knock Manchester United out of the Carabao Cup at Old Trafford back in September.

Wilson scored the winning goal for Wales in Tuesday night's 1-0 UEFA Nations League victory over the Republic of Ireland, with a spectacular free-kick from the edge of the box.

It was only a few weeks ago that the 21-year-old had wrong-footed Manchester United goalkeeper Sergio Romero with a similar free-kick, as instead of curling the ball over the wall he chose to bend the ball around the wall and into the top corner, and while tonight's free-kick may not be as impressive as that moment of magic he produced for Derby at Old Trafford, it still shows that his dead-ball skills are oozing quality.

"I know he is keeping an eye on the loan players to see how they are doing".


After spending the second half of last season with Hull City, Liverpool felt Wilson would benefit from another spell in the Championship, with as many as 12 English clubs enquiring about his availability.

"I practice them a lot after training, putting them in different positions", Wilson said.

"I wouldn't say so, we're really tight in the dressing-room with the staff and the players".

Duffy admitted that the team are in "a bit of a low" but believes Ireland can turn it around in their final Nations League group game away to Denmark. "It's a tough group and now it is in our hands".


"It was a grandstand finish and I thought we could have got something, but I thought there were a lot of positives despite the result".

'When you are playing for managers who had careers like them you have to take as much as you can off them, ' he said.

O'Neill and assistant Roy Keane will mark five years at the helm next month, when they will need Denmark to lose in Wales and to then record their first win in five competitive matches in Aarhus three days later if they are to avoid relegation from League B.
