International: Joe Rodon’s brother mocks his display for Wales against USMNT

Tottenham Hotspur loanee and current centre-back for Stade Rennais Joe Rodon has been mocked by his own brother Sam Rodon for his performance against the USMNT.

Rodon started the game for Wales in their opening group-stage game against the USA, while also making his debut at the FIFA World Cup. However, things did not go according to plan for the former Swansea City defender.

The 25-year-old was criticised for pressing too high and subsequently leaving a hole at the back. Ultimately, his country had to pay the price as it allowed Timothy Weah to run in behind and open the scoring.

However, former Spurs winger Gareth Bale saved his side after he converted his penalty to earn a 1-1 draw for his country. Rodon had a tough time from the start at the back.

The Spurs loanee almost scored an own goal early on but improved his game as time went on. However, his own brother Sam Rodon could not help but take a dig at his sibling via his Twitter account (h/t Express) as shown below:

The “on spice” remark is supposedly a reference to a person being high on marijuana. Rodon surprised many when he made a move to join Rennes this summer. The 25-year-old has played 14 games in all competitions for the French side, scoring one goal in the process.

While it is highly likely that his brother wrote the tweet as a joke, the 25-year-old would be wise to up his game. The defender is likely to start again for his country against Iran on Friday (25 November) and will hope to put in a decent performance.

While success with Wales will be paramount for him right now, there will be Spurs and Rennes who will be watching his performances closely. For Tottenham, the World Cup could be a good chance to convince Rennes to exercise the buy clause in his contract.
