Liverpool Internationals: Neco and Wilson Win, Shaqiri Loses

Is it better to cameo and win, or to play most of the game and lose? You tell me.

It was a busy day for Liverpool FC’s boys as plenty of LFC players took part in Euro 2020 action last night. For Wales, both Harry Wilson and Neco Williams played bit-parts in Wales’ 2-0 win against Turkey in Baku. Wilson entered the fray in the 85th minute, with Williams following deep into stoppage time. On the other team’s bench was Ozan Kabak, who did not come on, as the Turks dropped to two defeats in two. The game was largely dominated by Gareth Bale, who despite missing a penalty in spectacular fashion, created both goals for Aaron Ramsey and Connor Roberts. Wales now sit second in Group A with four points from their two fixtures so far.

In other Group A action, Xherdan Shaqiri started for Switzerland in their 3-0 defeat by Italy at the Stadio Olimpico. The Liverpool attacker played 75 minutes of the tie, which saw an impressive Italian team win comfortably, with Manuel Locatelli (two) and Ciro Immobile netting for the hosts. Group A action will conclude on Sunday afternoon with Wales facing Italy, and Switzerland against Turkey.
