Dummett On The Outside Looking In!

Last updated : 14 October 2014 By Footy Mad - Editor

Dummett still only has one cap, but regular Premier League performances with Newcastle must keep the youngster in the frame as Wales hope to break their hoodoo of only appearing in only one major finals ... and that was back in 1958.

Paul Dummett still to make his mark with Wales

Their 2-1 win over Cyprus in Cardiff came at a cost as mdfielder Andy King was sent off two minutes into the second half for a straight red card for his challenge on Cyprus captain Constantinos Makridis.

But Wales - who swept into a two-goal lead inside 23 minutes through early substitute David Cotterill and Hal Robson-Kanu before Vincent Laban pulled one back for Cyprus before half-time - held on to make it seven points from three games and ensure they retain top spot heading into next month's qualifier in Belgium.

Tiger Tim saved from humiliation

Tim Krul's elbow injury cost him a place in Holland's squad, but at least he was saved from humiliation.

Holland's poor start to the Euro 2016 qualifying campaign continued on Monday evening as a Gylfi Sigurdsson brace earned Iceland a 2-0 victory in Reykjavik.

Swansea midfielder Sigurdsson opened the scoring with a 10th-minute penalty and sealed matters with a second goal three minutes before half-time to earn his country a first ever triumph over the Oranje, who remained on just three points after three games in Group A.
