Wales got their bid to qualify for Euro 2020 off to a winning start after Swansea City winger Daniel James scored the only goal in a 1-0 victory over Slovakia at Cardiff City Stadium. 

The 21-year-old struck after five minutes and Ryan Giggs’ men rarely looked like losing against opponents they are expected to be vying with for a qualification spot from Group E. 

Croatia are tipped to top the group but after a performance in which the talents of James, David Brooks and Harry Wilson caught the eye more than those of Gareth Bale, Wales have every reason to look forward to a successful campaign. 

Wales coped admirably without the injured Aaron Ramsey as Giggs’ well-drilled midfield kept the dangerous Marek Hamsik quiet to ensure they picked up all three points.
