    Wales suffer blow as key defender ruled out of crucial Euro 2024 qualifier against Turkey

    Wales Defender Ben Davies Withdraws from Euro 2024 Qualifier Against Turkey

    In a surprising turn of events, Wales defender Ben Davies has withdrawn from the squad for their upcoming Euro 2024 qualification match against Turkey. The reason behind his sudden departure is due to the birth of his first child, leaving many fans and players alike stunned.

    The Impact on Wales’ Squad

    This news comes as yet another blow to Rob Page’s side who are looking to bounce back after a humiliating defeat by Armenia during their last match. With striker Kieffer Moore also unavailable due to his red card in that game, and goalkeeper Tom King not travelling with the squad either, it seems like losing two key players was not part of Page’s script.

    Davies was one of the players that Page spoke about being delighted to get back before the Armenia game since he had missed both opening games against Croatia and Latvia. Unfortunately, his return turned into a disaster against a side ranked much lower than them in world rankings.

    Who Will Replace Davies?

    The absence of an experienced player like Davies will undoubtedly have an impact on how Wales approaches their next qualifier. Full-back Neco Williams is expected to start in place of him while uncapped Morgan Fox is another option for Rob Page at left-back position if needed.

    Possible Changes In Attack Without Moore

    If Daniel James and Brennan Johnson continue playing out wide against Turkey without available strikers such as Moore or Bradshaw , Liam Cullen or Nathan Broadhead will look to take the opportunity in Moore’s absence. This situation has left Welsh fans wondering how they can make up for these players’ absence and still come out with a victory.

    Overall, Wales will need to find a way to regroup after their last defeat and make up for the loss of key players if they hope to qualify for Euro 2024 tournament. It’s important that Rob Page comes into this game with a clear plan since Turkey is currently leading Group D with two points ahead of Wales in third place.
