Striker earns first Wales cap...

Walsall striker Tom Bradshaw earned his first international cap for Wales in their 1-0 friendly defeat against Ukraine.

The 23-year-old made a lively cameo appearance after being introduced as a 72nd-minute substitute for Leicester's Tom Lawrence.

The Shrewsbury-born forward very nearly grabbed a debut goal in stoppage-time, when he rose highest from a corner but his header was saved by Andriy Pyatov.

Before then, Bradshaw – our 18-goal top scorer - flicked a cross into the path of Burnley forward Sam Vokes who headed wide.

“It was a shame not to win the game but I enjoyed every second I was on that pitch,” said Bradshaw.

“It has always been a dream of mine to play for my country and now I have achieved that.”

This is how Twitter reacted...

Congratulations to Tom Bradshaw on his 1st cap for Wales: great attitude and work ethic
