Morrell Features For Wales Against England

Pompey midfielder makes second World Cup appearance

29 November 2022

Joe Morrell made his second World Cup appearance for Wales, coming on as a second half substitute against England.

But a 3-0 defeat in Al Rayyan meant that Rob Page’s men finished bottom of Group B and will be heading home from Qatar.

Morrell replaced the injured Ben Davies after 59 minutes, by which point his side were already trailing to strikes from Marcus Rashford and Phil Foden shortly after the interval.

The Pompey midfielder produced a solid display, but another strike from Rashford wrapped things up for England.

He had already made a late cameo appearance in a 1-1 draw with USA – who beat Iran to finish second in the group – last week.

Morrell has now won 32 caps for Wales and was also part of the squad that reached the knockout stages of Euro 2020.

Meanwhile, Gareth Southgate’s Three Lions topped the standings and will face Senegal in the last 16 on Sunday (7pm kick-off).
