Republic of Ireland v Wales

Republic of Ireland v Wales

With Bale injured and therefore unavailable for Tuesday's Uefa Nations League clash with the Republic of Ireland, Wilson took the opportunity to prove that Wales are far from a one-man team as he curled home a gorgeous free-kick on the hour-mark.

Wilson's goal in the 58th minute was a close copy of his dead ball strike against Manchester United for Derby and Giggs said he was more pleased at this latest effort.

Wales manager Ryan Giggs praised captain Ashley Williams as "magnificent" after the 1-0 Nations League win in the Republic of Ireland.

After a drab first half at the Aviva Stadium, Wilson needed no second invitation when Harry Arter needlessly fouled Connor Roberts on the edge of the Irish area.

He also netted from a free-kick last month as Derby won at Manchester United in the Carabao Cup.

Pence addressed the three leaders on Thursday in Washington, at the Conference for Prosperity and Security in Central America. The group was ultimately able to cross, said march organizer Bartolo Fuentes, a former Honduran lawmaker.

It's a special talent to be able to do that.

"I said that to the players: 'They're the players you've got to look up to.' A lot of good performances but his stood out".

"He does it all the time in training; it's practice, practice, practice. I have seen David Beckham over the years with his free-kicks and it's all about practice, practice, practice, and Harry does that as well".

It was a hugely encouraging victory for Wales, who were without Gareth Bale and Aaron Ramsey in a competitive game for the first time since 2008.

Wales are now two points ahead of Denmark and would win the group by beating them in next month's match in Cardiff. Madrid fans were upset because by going with Wales he showed his commitment to the national team while with them any slight knock or pain and he is ruled out. He defended, did the hard stuff which gave us the platform to go on'.
