'Fantastic' Tottenham man has picked up an injury on international duty, he limped off last night

Tottenham Hotspur defender Joe Rodon has picked up an injury for Wales in their dramatic defeat to the Netherlands.

Rob Page’s side went 2-0 down in the first half, and at that point, it looked like they could be in for a really chastening night.

But while England collapsed at home to Hungary, Wales fought back, first replying through Brennan Johnson, before Gareth Bale’s penalty.

That spot-kick came in stoppage time and looked like it would clinch a Nations League point for the Welsh, but Memphis Depay won the game 3-2.

Rodon picks up an injury for Wales

On 67 minutes, Rodon limped out of the action to be replaced by Welsh legend Chris Gunter, with Wales Online confirming he had a knock.

Perhaps that is not too much of a surprise, given he has not played a great deal of football and these end of season Nations League matches are not ideal for anyone.

But Rodon does have the World Cup to look forward to before the end of the year and he has to get his future sorted between now and then.

Rodon injury for Wales

The defender has been linked with Nottingham Forest, whose manager Steve Cooper worked with him at Swansea and called him ‘fantastic‘ during their time together.

The injury does not look serious, and given it looks most likely at this stage that Rodon will move on this summer, it is to be hoped that any fitness issue does not hamper an exit.

A lack of regular football has not lost Rodon his Wales spot, but he would ideally like to be playing regularly ahead of the showpiece tournament which starts in November.
