Connor Roberts suffered injury misfortune as Wales’ Euro 2020 adventure was ended by defeat to Denmark in Amsterdam.

The Swansea City defender started for the fourth-straight game at the finals, having played every minute of the group stage games against Switzerland, Turkey and Italy.

Wales fell behind to a Kasper Dolberg strike before Roberts was forced off five minutes before the break; appearing to suffer a groin injury as he stretched to try and keep the ball in play on the touchline.

Rob Page’s side conceded second-half goals as Dolberg, Joakim Maehle and Martin Braithwaite netted for the Danes, with Harry Wilson’s red card rounding off the last-16 defeat for Wales.

While it was a disappointing end to Wales’ tournament, Roberts was among those to stand-out in national colours, with the defender scoring the memorable late clincher in the crucial victory over Turkey in Baku.
