It proved to be a frustrating day for Wales. The game ended in a goalless draw and it ended up being a very feisty encounter.

It was an encouraging performance as the Welsh prepare to try and replicate their incredible run in Euro 2016.

Leeds star Tyler Roberts could use international stage to get momentum going for next season

It looks set to be a huge season for Roberts at Elland Road. He was excellent at times during the final weeks of this past campaign.

Of course, he got his first top flight goal in the clash with Southampton. And he produced a handful of man of the match displays along the way.

Nevertheless, there are still question marks surrounding Roberts. He is arguably not a starter when Marcelo Bielsa has his strongest side available.

The quality Rodrigo Moreno brought to the team late on showed the challenge ahead for Roberts.

The Spaniard was outstanding. And Roberts has arguably not quite proved that he can really reach that level.

So this summer perhaps presents a fantastic opportunity to Roberts to prove an additional point.

If he can impress with Wales, his confidence is surely going to receive a huge boost ahead of his return to Leeds for pre-season.
