It was an early lead for Wales as Bale scored in the 10th minute of the game. It took another 50 minutes before Duda tied it for Slovakia but eventually Wales had the go-ahead goal from Robson-Kanu.

Manager Chris Coleman praised the impact of substitute and Wales’ winning goal scorer Hal Robson-Kanu

“Well, look, sometimes you make substitutions, sometimes they work, sometimes they don’t. We needed to get further up the pitch. That’s what Hal gives us. He came on and he got in behind the defence, he got our defenders ten or twenty yards further up the pitch which meant it was away from our goal because they were there for too long, fifteen, twenty minutes on top of us. But we got out. We got a goal. We should, or could, have had one more, or two more. Overall, a fantastic performance.”

Slovakia midfielder Ondrej Duda —

“Of course I’m glad about the goal, but my feelings are not the same as if we’d won the match, or if it had been a draw, so it’s kind of strange, We were just lacking some luck, because they scored a goal where the player didn’t hit the ball properly, but unfortunately for us, it went in.”
