Edwards score as Wales win against the Scots

Both David Edwards and Wayne Hennessey played the whole match (well, David played for 88 minutes to be exact) when Wales won against Scotland by three goals to nothing. Vokes played the second half of the game.

It was Wales and Arsenal’s young midfielder Aaron Ramsey who was the driving force for the Wales team. He did set up two of the goals and scored a fantastic goal himself.

But he begun with setting up the goal for Wolves midfielder David Edwards. It started with a nice one-two between Ramsey and Sam Ricketts and then Ramsey made a cut back that was clinically volleyed into the net by Edwards.

BBC Sports man in Cardiff writes:

The Wolves man’s acrobatic finish from 10 yards out was a goal against the run of play but Edwards, like the stadium, is establishing himself as a goalscoring regular as he celebrated his third goal from midfield from only 18 Wales appearances.

We really want to see some of those acrobatics in Wolves as well!

But it was not only Edwards from Wolves who excelled with Wales today. Hennessey also was very much on the alert when he saved an early shot from close up by McFadden of Birmingham (good training for the coming game against them).

Later in the first half the fantastic playing Ramsey then set up a goal for Church and only three minutes later scored a goal of his own. Scotland were booed off by their own at halftime. It was the largest lead for Wales in half time for six years.

Vokes came in to play in the second half and as Scotlands back McManus miss-kicked a ball Sam Vokes raced forward and the Scot keeper Marshall had to fell the fast Vokes.

The Swiss official only showed him a yellow card when, as last man, he should have had a red. But it was a friendly so I guess that they use slightly different rules.

Hennessey did another good save in the last minutes when Steve Fletcher headed the ball towards goal. But the match ended 3-0 to Wales and Edwards scored the first and Hennessey saved Wales when Scotland could have been let into the game. So as Wolves supporters we should be very pride, as I am sure the Welsh are.
