Wales picked up a narrow win over Trinidad and Tobago earlier in the week.

Leeds United ace Tyler Roberts managed to impress with his display. The attacker came close to scoring for his country.

Dave Edwards has now heaped praise on the Championship player for his performance.

Speaking to Sky Sports (via HITC), he revealed that Roberts is a terrific player. He also opened up about training alongside the attacker.

The Shrewsbury Town midfielder also explained that Tyler Roberts has all the qualities Ryan Giggs is currently looking out for.

Edwards said: “He is a terrific footballer. I first remember training with Tyler Roberts when he came along with Ethan Ampadu to the preliminary camp before Euro 2016. He was obviously very young then and you could see the quality he had. I think he works really well in between the lines, like a No 10, so he can naturally play that wide position and he’ll make good runs inside all night. I think that’s what Ryan Giggs is looking for.”

It will be interesting to see if Roberts manages to cement his place as a key starter for Wales going forward.

He has been in fine form for Leeds United this season and Marcelo Bielsa’s coaching seems to have taken his game to another level.

He will be looking to continue his development and guide Leeds to Championship glory this season. The Whites have a chance of winning the league title this year. They will be desperate for promotion as well.
