The major talking points ahead of Wales’ clash with Croatia
Croatia will qualify for the finals of Euro 2020 with a Cardiff win.
Manager Ryan Giggs has plenty to ponder ahead of Wales’ Euro 2020 qualifying clash with Croatia in Cardiff.
It comes just 72 hours after Wales’ pulsating 1-1 draw with Slovakia in Trnava, and Giggs’ side seeking to close ground on the top-two.
Here, the PA news agency looks at the main talking points surrounding the Group E fixture.
Stick or twist?
Ramsey’s race against time
Tight race to finish line
Wales have found themselves in one of the most competitive groups in Euro 2020 qualifying. Croatia would secure qualification courtesy of a Cardiff victory, with Slovakia, Hungary and Wales probably battling it out for second spot. Three closing wins would see Wales make it, but two could be enough – even if they lose to Croatia. Slovakia still have to go to Croatia. Wales have a game in hand on the top three and a possibly crucial head-to-head advantage over Slovakia.
Moore to come
Wigan’s Kieffer Moore was a revelation on his first competitive appearance in Slovakia. The 6ft 5ins striker held the ball up, brought others into play and capped his performance with an excellent first-half headed goal. Moore suffered a cut head for his troubles, but the former part-time lifeguard looks capable of making a splash for some time to come. As he admitted himself after the game, there are not many players like him in international football.
