Youri Tielemans scored in the 51st minute to give Belgium the lead, but a goal from Forest winger Brennan Johnson equaled it all as the game ended 1-1.
Dennis Praet came on as a second half sub playing the last 18 minutes for Belgium with Timothy Castagne an unused sub. Danny Ward was not involved as Burnley experienced goalie Wayne Hennessey was teh preferred choice this afternoon.
Watching Wales, recently qualified to the World Cup for the first time since 1958, you do have to admire the set up and grit from their players. A mix of men from different clubs and special situations as it turns out to be a good blend from their caretaker manager Robert Page.
Wales will not be first time boys in a tournament with two Euro qualifications behind them and as we all can remember reaching the semi-final in 2016, defeated by Portugal later to become winners of the final vs. France.
Forest winger Brennan Johnson was earlier linked with a move to Leicester but as we have said earlier on with his club back in the best party they probably look to build on their best men and go for a survival plan instead of selling key players.
Wales do have qualities in their side and as we all know former dragons has also shone at Leicester. Andy King, Robbie Savage and Peter Rodrigues are three players that spent a number of years at Leicester representing their nation with pride and adding caps in their time.
King did become the most capped Leicester player ever when he passed Gordon Banks (England) and John O’Neill (N Ireland) who had previously been record holders. Since then Kasper Schmeichel is the one taking that thrown. All his full caps for Denmark is achieved during his know 11 years at Leicester. He will soon be reaching 100 caps, but still a few more games to be on that tally, 83 so far.
Jonny Evans made another appearance for his N Ireland earlier reaching a total of 97 caps, and also building a momentum of caps while in a Leicester shirt.
