Matt Smith made his 18th appearance for Wales in their UEFA Nations League tie with Belgium.

Smith was handed a start by Wales boss Rob Page and, up against the likes of Kevin de Bruyne, Eden Hazard and Youri Tielemans, the MK Dons midfielder played 64 minutes in the narrow 2-1 defeat at the King Baudouin Stadium in Brussels.

Wales return to action on Sunday when they face Poland at the Cardiff City Stadium.

Meanwhile, Dawson Devoy and JJ Kayode are set for Republic of Ireland’s crunch UEFA European Under-21 Championship Qualifying Play-Off First Leg tie against Israel.
