Swansea City defender Joe Rodon made his Wales debut as Ryan Giggs' side beat Azerbaijan 2-1 in their Euro 2020 qualifier in Cardiff.

Rodon was one of five changes to the starting XI which picked up a second group win courtesy of an own goal from Pavlo Pashayev and Gareth Bale's late winner.

Rodon played the full 90 minutes, as did his Swans team-mate Roberts.

And Giggs was full of praise for his latest debutant.

"Joe Rodon excellent for his first cap - wow, what a performance."
