Wales went down 1-0 away from home against Hungary last night leaving them fourth in their qualification group for the 2020 European Championships at the halfway stage.
Mate Patkai’s goal ten minutes from time clinched the victory and Tottenham defender Ben Davies was partially at fault.
So perhaps he was showing signs of that injury after a long season with Tottenham, but the supporters did not feel he was at his best last night.
Plenty of them took to Twitter to express their displeasure with Davies’ display, despite the fact that he has been one of Wales’ best players during their recent resurgence.
There’s still perhaps confusion over whether Davies’ best role is at left back or centre half – and he has played both roles for his country – but this one was a night to forget for the defender.
While Giggs does share the responsibility – Wales have been too open. If Bale passes big opportunity in Croatia, Wales could get something. If Ben Davies doesn't dive in Vs Hungary, Wales could have got something, if Bale puts away that simple chance and so on. Individual errors.

Ben Davies fault for the goal, diving in with some wafty kung fu kick and taking himself out of the game.

Bale totally off the pace. Missed chance absolutely symptomatic of that whole performance.
Ben Davies nowhere near the level he’s capable of.
J.Lawrence been very poor in both games.

For (further) proof of how good Pochettino is, just watch Ben Davies' performances in a Wales shirt…

Ben Davies needs to move away from spurs this summer. You can tell the lack of game time is really affecting his performances for Wales. He’s been woeful
