Tottenham stars Ben Davies and Joe Rodon star in Wales’ 2-1 win over Croatia
A brace from Harry Wilson saw Wales beat Croatia in their UEFA EURO Qualification Grp. D Round 8 fixture on Monday. Tottenham stars Ben Davies and Joe Rodon (on loan at Leeds) were among the players who started the game for The Dragons.
Former Tottenham man Luka Modric was part of the midfield trio for Croatia at the Cardiff City Stadium. This win takes Rob Page’s men to the second spot on their group charts, six points adrift of Turkey, but with a game in hand.
Both Spurs’ reps completed their 90 minutes and were fairly decent in the game. With the fierce competition and demanding nature of international fixtures, these experiences can be invaluable for the development of the players, especially Rodon. Davies also led his nation in the absence of first-choice captain Aaron Ramsey.
The exposure to different playing styles, tactics, and the pressure of international football is something that can significantly benefit their club careers.
As they return to their club duties with Tottenham, both Davies and Rodon will carry the confidence and experience gained from international duty, further enhancing the squad’s depth and quality.
The international break has been a fruitful one for these two Spurs stars, and their contributions bode well for the Lilywhites and Leeds in the case of Rodon as they continue their respective league campaigns.
The win over Croatia is a testament to the growing strength of the Welsh national team.
