Would've been different had Beale not blown his hamstring in the first 10 minutes too. I was a bit confused about the Welsh tactics - they finally worked out in the 80th minute that keeping ball in hand and attacking patiently eventually creates an overlap to score - as up until then I was hardly impressed at their efforts. I'd heard calls for Roberts to be named player of the tournament though he had his worst performance of the tournament which I imagine would put a stop to any more calls for him to receive that award.
