No win over Wales again: The Red Devils still squandered victory in the last minutes | UEFA Nations League 2022/2023

The demons of Wales will continue to haunt her for some time. Once again, the Red Devils failed to beat their bogeyman, despite their perfect starting position. Yuri Tillmans gave Belgium the lead with a beautiful goal. Only Brennan Johnson punished the Devils’ slack in the last quarter with a late draw. Wasted a unique opportunity to catch up with the Netherlands.

Wales – Belgium in a nutshell:

  • Key moment: Wales continues to search for the equalizer in the final and it pays off. In the 86th minute, Ramsey got the ball on with a nice flick to Johnson, and the young substitute made Cardiff City Stadium explode with a 1-1 finish.
  • man of the match: He was a golden replacement for Brennan Johnson. It’s already been two golden months for the 21-year-old striker. Promoted to the Premier League with Nottingham Forest, he helped Wales to their first World Cup appearance in 64 years and scored his first goal for the national team tonight.
  • noticeable: To say Wales is not the favorite opponent of the golden generation is an understatement. In recent years, the Devils have now played against the Welsh 7 times, and the Belgians have only managed to win once.

Rejected 1-0, Trossard misses 0-1

The score was 1-0 before kick-off. With their version of the Welsh national anthem, the team’s fans delivered true goosebumps. Less than 5 minutes into the match, the score was 1-0 effective on the scoreboard. Or at least for a moment, because the VAR rejected Ampadu’s early goal for offside.

It was an exciting start for Wales. The Belgians had a hard time with this. Boyata let James pass through his legs, and Bale was unable to extend the ball into the goal. On the other side, Tillmans put up some resistance, and Hennessy parried a powerful blow.

The Belgians gradually improved in the match, but the finesse was lacking. Carrasco ended up dumping Hennessy after a nice cross from De Bruyne. Moments later, he got a second chance on a sharp table, but missed his shot completely.

Shortly before the end of the first half, Trossard approached the score 0-1 with a shot stopped by Batshuayi, but only for the open goal he missed. De Bruyne also took his chance with a sudden bang, keeping Hennessey Wells straight again.

The demons take over the match

Early in the second half, the Belgians succeeded. After a gentle attack, Batshuayi retained the overview at sixteen. He prepared the ball perfectly for Tielemans, who shot 0-1 just beyond Hennessy’s reach.

The hardest thing seemed to be done, and the score 2-2 in Holland and Poland also sounded like music to our ears. But it turned out to be a lullaby for demons who weren’t looking for a second target. In the second half, which was full of substitutions, the Belgians allowed Wales to return to the match.

With a header from Rodon in a Ramsay free kick, the Devils escaped, but moments later were injured. After superb help from Ramsey himself, Johnson dominated the equalizer after Castells. Offside edge, but VAR corrected the faltering assistant referee. Once again there is no win for the Belgians against the Engstigner.
