Saddlers starring on international duty

27 March 2023

Walsall defenders Liam Gordon and Joe Low have both been away on international duty this week and have both had a real positive impact representing their countries.

Gordon has been away with Guyana playing in the CONCACAF Nations League while Low has been with Wales Under 21s.

Here is a round up of how both players have been getting on so far!

Liam Gordon

This week was set to be an important one for Gordon and Guyana in their quest to reach the CONCACAF Gold Cup.  

Guyana started the day second in their Nations League group on six points, two points ahead of their opponents Bermuda.

A win for Guyana would secure second place in the group which would subsequently see them progress to the CONCACAF Gold Cup Preliminary qualifying stage.

After a goalless first half, Guyana upped the ante and Gordon opened the scoring in the 52nd minute after a cross was flicked on and the 23-year-old ghosted in at the far post to prod home.

They doubled their advantage six minutes later through Jeremy Garrett and kept their opponents at bay for the remainder of the game to secure a vital victory and progress to the preliminary qualifiers.

Gordon and Guyana are back in action on Wednesday as they host Montserrat in their final Nations League group match.

Joe Low

Low joined up with Wales Under 21s for the first time during this international break and it’s proved to be a fruitful experience.

Wales took on Scotland in Spain on Sunday in a friendly and got their noses in front after 28 minutes through Swansea City’s Josh Thomas.

Low, not to be outdone by his Saddlers teammate Gordon, also got on the scoresheet as well to add a second for Wales five minute before half time.

Thomas added a third on 51 minutes to round off a comprehensive victory.

Low has enjoyed the experience with the Under 21s and was buzzing mark his debut with a goal.

“I’m really delighted,” he said.  

“Being here all week training with the boys and finally being able to put the shirt on with everyone around me has been a brilliant opportunity and I’m very happy.

“The boys have brought me in, put their arm around me and everyone has been really welcoming, it’s been brilliant.”

Low will be hoping to be involved when Wales Under 21s play Denmark in June in a European Championship qualifier.
