A selection of view from Wales fans regarding the performances of Ethan Ampadu and Rhys Norrington-Davies during their 1-0 win over Bulgaria

“Ampadu so good at inteceptions. At Leipzig his role is to dart from CB and steal the ball”

“Ampadu dragging Davies away from an argument with the referee – future captain”

“Smith seemed more relaxed today. Because Ampadu is playing alongside him in the middle (Chris Wilder take note!)”

“Ampadu. Peerless, playmaker peacemaker.”

“never fails to impress me. Unbelievable player and only going to get better”

“Ampadu doing Ampadu things”


“Don’t understand the hype around Declan Rice either, bang average player. Ethan Ampadu can do exactly what he does to the exact same level.”

“One of the biggest positives”


“My MOTM has to be Ethan Ampadu. Showed such maturity when all the yellow cards were flying around. Missed very little attack and defence wise. Bravo.”

“Rodon & Ampadu.. both seriously talented”

“a solid display”

“There were plenty of promising performances tonight. Rodon, Mepham, Ampadu & Norrington-Davies did well”

“I know Ampadu has cult status for Wales but he’s massively overrated.”

“He’s about seven years old though. There’s probably an element of projection to the general view of him, in that he looks like one of those strolling midfield generals/liberos that great European teams of the past had. But he’s a kid. A promising one, too.”

“Didnt do enough imo”

“Ampadu was poor”

“Great debut from Norrington Davies.”

“Norrington-Davies MOTM.”

“Norrington-Davies was excellent”

“Rhys Norrington-Davies fantastic on debut”

“looked at ease on debut”

” First time I’ve seen Norrington-Davies play – impressive. “

“Norrington-Davies was a STUD this game”

“Absolutely brilliant debut”

“Norrington-Davies impressed a lot”

“Rhys Norrington-Davies was a big plus on his debut”

“thought the dude looked good on his debut tonight”

“Rhys Norrington-Davies like a prime Kenny Jackett out there tonight”

“Norrington-Davies looked quite good!”

“Llongyfarchiadau Rhys Norrington-Davies cap cyntaf arbennig. Aber boi done good! “

Norway Fans Views On Sander Berge

“Very exciting starting lineup of Norway for the game now. Martin Ødegaard, Mohamed Elyonoussi, Sander Berge, Erling Braut Haaland, Kristoffer Ajer … TOP.”

“Sander Berge’s best international match? Displays Genk class today”

“Berge Man of the match”

“Sander Berge is good, but it does not go very fast with him.”

“Berge should have been substituted”

“We can talk about hype on many Norwegian players – but no one beats Berge. What do people see that we do not see?”

“What IS Sander Berge really good at?”

“Sander Berge is overrated!”

“Both Berge and Normann will drop out soon”

“victory against a weakened Northern Ireland thanks to a comic own goal by Stuart Dallas. reckons that it is good enough for the media to talk Ødegaard into the first student, as well as Haaland and Berge into Real Madrid”

“Stevens a bit unlucky with this chance”

“Enda Stevens of all people came closest to scoring for us”

“The simple joy of seeing a natural left back in a system that encourages overlapping runs and quality delivery into the box should keep the Sheffield United veteran in the manager’s plans”

“Stevens linked up well with Aaron Connolly down the left”

“A decent showing.”

“good from both full-backs in an attacking sense.

“Rock solid defensively and a useful outlet on the left. Is now Ireland’s Mr Dependable.”

“Once again, very hard to quibble with anything he did during the game and it was another assured performance from a player eager to get on the ball as often as possible.”

“Stevens didn’t have as prominent a game as he did against Wales on Sunday and conceded possession at one point that resulted in one of Finland’s clearest chances. “

“The fact Stephen Kenny gets paid money to play Matt Doherty and Enda Stevens at full back instead of wing back is why I love football”

“Stevens does something awful every game he plays for Ireland.”

Scotland Fans Views On John Fleck

“Fleck is the only Scotland player I’d personally like to see in the Rangers current squad.”

” I would personally have fleck before McGinn.”

“John fleck>Calum McGregor”

“The way folk go on about him I’m expecting Pirlo.”

“Somebody needs to tell fleck he’s can pass forward”

“Considine, Jack, Fleck… Just not cutting it for Scotland.”

“Fleck is an empty shirt. I’m not sure hes done one notable thing in any appearance hes had for scotland.”

“Game passed him by”

“A complete passenger and offered us nothing”

“Don’t see it with Fleck. Really don’t see what he offers”

“John Fleck is honking”.

“John Fleck is a wee plum and oot his depth”

Norway Fans Views On Sander Berge

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is received_315383596236456-644x337.png

“Imagine if the players that is class today like Ødegaard, Håland, Ajer, Omar, Berge played like this against Serbia…”

“Ødegaard and Berge on a completely different level today, make some mistakes, but now dare to cross joints.”

“Haland is a goal scoring machine, there are Odegaard, Hauge and Berge on the side, this is even clearer”

Man, is that legal demais”

“What a pair Haaland and Ødegaard are with so much future and also sander Berge from Sheffield a crack”

“Hauge, Odegaard, Haaland, Sorloth, Sander Berge, Ajer. HOW MUCH THE FUCK DOES NORWAY GAS ?!”

“Very solid from Berge”

“It doesn’t take much to look good when you have Johansen and Berge next to you”

“Rice at Chelsea? Lol to do what? 60 million for this guy … Sander Berge is stronger”

“As a Chelsea fan we should go for Berge”

“Sander Berge, the 220 millionaire, you will get me cheap from me. big, heavy and everything goes in syrup. Praised”

Wales Fans Views On Ethan Ampadu

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is received_315383596236456-644x337.png

“Ethan Ampadu vs Ireland
Position played: CB
•100% tackle success
•100% aerials won
•91% pass completion
•0 times dribbled past
•1 interception
•6 clearances
Clean sheet.
What a display from the 20year old”

“A good defensive display from Amps”

“Ampadu today was great, really solid”

“A very good perfromance”

“Stuck his head on the chopping block in the two boxes. Slotted into the centre of defence seamlessly, after struggling in midfield against Jack Grealish and England on Thursday night. Produced a fine display at the back. Man of the match”

“Disappointed to see Ampadu playing CB again. Don’t get me wrong he is great there but he offers so much more than anyone else in the squad at CDM.”

“I think the direction of travel is certainly for Ampadu to be played in defence at club and international level. TB Leipzig were adamant that he’s a defender, Sheff U seem to be of the same mind and Giggs is clearly trying to give him some continuity in that position now too.”

“I can also see the benefit of providing Ampadu with some continuity if his preferred position has been decided.”

“If Giggs, Wilder and Lampard have all decided that he is a CB then I agree with the continuity. It just seems a shame and a bit of a waste of talent for Wales when he is a cut above the rest of our current CDM’s.”

“I think Ampadu is best suited to the middle of a back 3 with license to step into midfield. “

“Ampadu the most creative player today from CB, that says alot”

“Ampadu wasted in defence tho need him in the middle of the park”

“Ampadu is hugely missed in midfield”

“I think Rodon and Ampadu is the best possible pairing in central defence, but Allen and Ampadu is also the best combination at the base of midfield. I expect Ampadu may be our best striker and goalkeeper too though”

“We all dream of a team of Ampadu’s, a team of Ampadu’s . . . “

A collection of quotes taken from fans of The Republic Of Ireland on the performances of John Egan , Enda Stevens and David McGoldrick in the penalty shootout defeat to Slovakia

“Got forward every chance he got”

“Stevens did excellent setting up Browne”

“Great ball to set up Browne’s chance.”

“John Egan is some player”

“Solid in the air once more”

“McGoldrick is the Irish Zlatan but better”

“David Mcgoldrick is playing like a hybrid Messi and Pirlo”

“ampadu is terrible”

“Doesn’t look good at offering himself for the pass. Could be a CB”

Norway Fans Views On Sander Berge

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is received_315383596236456-644x337.png

“Too bad that Norway with such a beautiful generation arriving (Haaland, Sorloth, Berge, Ajjer,…) also play badly “

“Haaland, Odegaard, Sorloth, Berge are apparently not enough …”

“What the is Lars Lageback managing this team? He makes Haaland, Sørloth, Ødegaard, Sander Berge look like chinese farmers against Serbia. We’re losing against a team who’s best player is MITROVIC???”

“Berge is a good player”

“I really like Sander Berge. He organizes, marks the time of the game, usually improves the play when the ball passes his feet … His “problem” is that he is a classic midfielder. Far from what is demanded today.”

“Similar to Busquets. I still believe that this role in a 442 accompanied by a box to box still has its place”

“Berge has a lot of qualities. But he needs like all other good players around him.”

“Was good tho the whole team has been a bit shit today”

“Sander Berge. International average.”

“what the hell have Ødegaard, Berge and Ajer done today? Totally invisible and only support passes and Ajer wandering disaster behind.”

“Disappointing match by Berge. Goes terribly slow and fluent with mismatches.”

“I do not think I have ever seen Sander Berge play a good match.”

“Berge has had an absolute nightmare all game”

“Sorry but Sander Berge is very weak today”

“Berge is not quality”

“Never bought the Sander Berge hype. The impression solidly reinforced tonight.”

“Sander Berge, you’re not good.”

“Sander Berge = Norwegian Obi Mikel”

“Berge 3/10”

“Berge does not work as glue.”

“Berge seems to have eaten 2 liters of ice cream a lot. Tough in the pedals”

“Not sure who I think has been the worst. Berge is not exactly on the hook”

“Can anyone tell me why Berge, as one of the team’s highest, on death and life should hit dead balls?”

“Berge is praised. I want absolutely everything Sheffield Utd hurts.”

View From The Republic Of Ireland

A collection of quotes taken from fans of The Republic Of Ireland on the performances of John Egan and Enda Stevens in the 1-1 draw v Bulgaria

“Terrible positioning from Duffy and Egan for the goal. right bunch of pansies “

“The Bulgaria goal was Sunday league stuff, Duffy and Egan were 6s and 7s”

“Woeful defending from Egan and, particularly, Duffy”

“too far apart from his team-mate for Kraev’s goal.”

“Egan as much to blame as Duffy for the goal. “

“Both CBs have been poor tonight & not just for the goal & I’m a big John Egan fan.”

“Poor defending from Egan”

“Duffy saved Egan’s bacon tonight.”

“Egan needs to be more comfortable on the ball”

“Did much of the passing out from the back as Kenny asked him to take on the task and was up to it for the most part. But the 56th minute goal will annoy him. Either Egan or Duffy ought to have been touch tight on Bulgaria’s striker.”

“continued to look comfortable throughout with the exception of the goal, although he wasn’t helped by his defensive partner. Showed plenty of promise on the ball, something that will please his manager.”

“The likes of Egan, Stevens & others showed we can apply serious pressure. Great platform to build on. “

“Egan emerging as a leader”

“Enda Stevens’ first touch. Even when he has space, his first instinct is to touch it backwards. I know it mightn’t be easy when you’ve no winger in front of you but he needs to start playing forward”

“Death, taxes, and Enda Stevens’ first touch going backwards”

“. Stevens is another player who was so so poor although you could see the brightness in the link up with Connolly.”

” established as the first choice left-back. Very harshly booke. Combined with Connolly at times, over-lapping. Almost set up O’Dowda right on half-time with a fine cut-back.”

“Steady as ever from the Sheffield United man who is one of Ireland’s most reliable players now. He tried to get forward every time there was the slightest chance of being creative”

“Doherty and Stevens good going forward but leave CB very exposed at times.”

“Stevens lookeda bit exposed on the left”

“didn’t get on as much possession as he would have liked.”

“Enda Stevens image of postman pat baiting up and down that line surprised there’s not a cat following him”
