Gunter and Robson-Kanu defeated by Dutch

5 June 2014

Brave display by Royals duo

Chris Gunter and Hal Robson-Kanu played in front of over 50,000 people for Wales on Wednesday evening, as they saw their nation defeated 2-0 by the Netherlands at the Amsterdam Arena.

Chris played 90 minutes to win his 53rd cap, whilst Hal started and was given just over an hour, as Arjen Robben and Jeremain Lens secured a World Cup send off for the Oranje.

Gunter did well to clear off the line early on before cleverly sliding in former Royal Simon Church for a chance just after the hour mark, whilst Robson-Kanu battled well in an advanced position. 

Wales boss Chris Coleman said: ""It was a huge performance from the team, a fantastic mentality. Our lads have had four training sessions in almost a month and were playing against a top team who have been together for two or three weeks, and this is their third friendly in that time. We did what we could - and could have got one or two goals ourselves. It was a great performance overall."
