Wales defeated the Republic of Ireland 1-0, in a UEFA Nations League clash on Sunday, with Ethan Ampadu among the stars on display for the Welsh team.

Ampadu was deployed in the middle of the park for Wales, and the versatile player had a good game.

Welsh supporters sang his praises after the game with one even claiming that he’s better than West Ham and England midfielder Declan Rice, who Frank Lampard was keen on signing during the summer transfer window.

“Ampadu is a rolls royce talent. Don’t ever doubt that”

“Ampadu was quality”

“Seriously, how good a player is Ampadu? And the lad’s still basically a kid.”

“Ampadu with another solid display. Ireland never really offered much, but he held his position and always made himself an option. He’ll only get better the more he plays.”

“Ampadu was everywhere tonight”

“His was a mature performance. More disciplined, less showy”

“Confident in possession, him and Allen will be a formidable partnership in the centre of the park. Cleaned up everything that came to him.”
