Just started watching. First thing I see is Joniesta getting a pile driver of a cross into the mush. He looked concussed but plays on. Good catch by the Hen just there. 0 0 first 36 mins.

1 0 Sweden. Shot along the ground. Like the first goal for City v Palace. Hennessy beaten at far post. Dived late.

Nothing Hennessey could have done with the goal shot put into the very corner of the goal. Joniesta playing well.

Wales look awful and are now losing 2 0.

Beg to disagree. He did that step thing and dived late. However, the shot was well placed. Wales defending has been abject though. I'm surprised. They had a wonderful record in the qualifiers. Zlatan off. Maybe now Wales will pick up. From an Irish perspective, they should watch how Sweden utilized Zlatan. He was very deep, almost strangely so.

3 0. This is a painful watch. Wanted Wales because of the Palace link. Didn't want Sweden because of the Irish link. We're Wales really up for this because it looked so half speed on their part? Full Time.

Sounds like a training jaunt with nobody wanting to injure themselves before the Finals. But I didn't see it so maybe I'm wrong and Wales were just rubbish.:confused:

We weren't great but Joniesta did play well which was nice to see. Missing Bale for most of the match didn't help and Ledley, Allen and Robson-Kanu were out. It's been a while since Ramsey and Bale have played for Wales so that could be part of the reason we weren't very good.

Pretty much. Everyone is allowed to do that. Apart from England.

We're so short of players that, if we got any injuries, we'd have to call up Charlotte Church :)

Not the worst call you could make :)

It'd be fun in the communal bath afterwards as per Big Mal.

Absolutely, Katherine Jenkins could be in the bath to do that :)

Was it just me that thinks Sweden was a slightly odd choice for Wales' last friendly, particularly away from home?

Why you say that?

Quality performance for Joniesta. Hoping for a big tournament
