Wales’s play on Friday night left a bad taste in the mouth
We were left ashen-faced by Seamus Coleman's injury as Ireland took another step towards Russia 2018
Dean Saunders was the first to reach for the old platitudes. Speaking on Sky Sports, while we were left ashen-faced by what had happened to Seamus Coleman, the former Wales striker rushed to defend Neil Taylor. “He’s not that sort of player,” Saunders announced. What was more galling thereafter was to hear Wales manager Chris Coleman reach for the very same cardboard shield by mentioning that his own playing days had been halted by a leg break, albeit one caused by a car accident.
