First team

Brooks, Mepham and Fraser taste defeat


AFC Bournemouth AFC Bournemouth

Three of our players were dealt blows in their hopes to qualify for the UEFA European Championships with their respective nations following defeats on Tuesday evening.

David Brooks was given the nod to start in Wales’ Group E game away at Hungary, with Chris Mepham on the bench.

However Ryan Giggs’ side were beaten by a solitary Mate Patkai goal in Budapest, and now face an uphill task to qualify with just three points from their three group games so far.

Brooks played a total of 73 minutes, whilst Mepham was an unused substitute.

In Group I Scotland and Ryan Fraser were beaten 3-0 by runaway leaders Belgium in Brussels.

Fraser started the game on the bench and was introduced after just 32 minutes, replacing the injured Stuart Armstrong.

But a brace from Romelu Lukaku and a Kevin De Bruyne strike ultimately secured victory for the Belgians.

Scotland now have six qualifying points after four games.
