Wales began their Qatar 2022 World Cup quest with a 1-1 draw against USA in their first group game in the competition. The Welsh team had an awful performance in the first half and had to change few tactics in the second half.
Former Manchester United star Daniel James was substituted in the break and Gareth Bale reveals why the coach took the decision.
Wales captain Gareth Bale said: “It’s an amazing feeling to get off the mark personally, but we would much rather have had the three points.
It was a great team performance, especially in the second half when we showed that real grit and determination to get back into the game. We are proud of that. We have things to build on and things to work on.
“We made a few tactical changes [at half-time]. It was nothing that DJ [Dan James] did wrong, it was just that we needed different personnel and a slightly different way of playing.
Fantastic decision from the manager yet again, it shows how class he is, and credit to the boys for digging deep and showing our character.
