Robbie Savage trolls England as Wales crush Moldova

Football News

Wales kicked off their 2018 World Cup qualifying campaign with a convincing 4-0 win at home to Moldova.

Showing no signs of a hangover from that incredible run to the European Championship semi-final, goals from Sam Vokes, Joe Allen and Gareth Bale’s brace gave Chris Coleman’s team three points at Cardiff City Stadium.

After several years of irrelevance, Wales have cracked international football. The same can’t be said for England.

Sam Allardyce’s tenure got off to a depressing start yesterday with a 1-0 win against Slovakia. England needed a 95th minute goal from Adam Lallana to beat the 24th best nation in the world.

Following that miserable Euro 2016 campaign, it was hoped that Allardyce would be the one to turn England’s fortunes around. He has an impressive resume and has never hidden his interest in managing the Three Lions.

It’s too early to judge Big Sam’s spell but early signs aren’t positive.

Savage's tweets

Former Wales international Robbie Savage had some fun as England’s expense during the win against Slovakia, posting an image of a man watching paint dry as a sign of his boredom and also tweeting: “Bring Rashford on …. Oh …. !!,” alluding to Marcus Rashford’s exclusion from the senior team.

England were helped by Martin Skrtel’s sending off, something Savage also poked fun at. “Wales beat Slovakia when they had 11 men,” he tweeted, adding a crying emoji. “England will surely win against 10.”

And as the former Bolton man watched Bale inspire the Dragons to a 4-0 win, he couldn’t help but troll those England supporters who continued to bite at his comments.
