Eastwood's dream Wales debut

International football Wales
comment on the article

Freddy Eastwood's debut goal against Bulgaria gave manager John Toshack possibly his best results in nearly three years in charge of Wales....just a shame it was a friendly!

After watching the first 15 minutes, I thought it would be a case of damage limitation for Wales.

Bulgaria ran the inexperienced Wales midfield ragged and Sam Ricketts looked all at sea as the right wing-back.

But Wales somehow managed to keep their shape and then Eastwood delivered some solo magic - could this be the first of many for him in a Wales shirt?

Wayne Hennessey also deserves a special mention for an outstanding display, although Toshack was typically economical with his praise in the post-match interview saying "that's what goalkeepers are there to do"!

It was a great result against a strong Bulgaria side, but I can't see Germany wasting as many opportunities in Cardiff next month.

What are your thoughts on the game?

Eastwood is probably better off playing for Wales than throwing his career down the toilet to get a solitary cap then sit and watch the same old clowns get the same old results under the a poor England manager.

Nice seeing wolves players playing well for their country. Well done lads

Btw if his family and roots are welsh but he is born in england surely he is welsh.

IF a dog is born is a stable is it a horse?

Doesn't matter if we qualify for anything mate, wehave more passion in our team than england has any day.

When was the last time England won anything?

Dont give me all 1966 world champions, that was 41 years ago, you have had no impact on world football at all. overrated.

And yeah, if Eastwood decided not to play for wales, the score would of been 0-0

But think of all the goals that traitor Owen scored for you.
