Ben Davies scored a rare goal while on international duty with Wales last night to help his country to a convincing 5-1 World Cup qualifying win against Belarus.

The victory has seen Wales move up to second place in their World Cup qualifying group to bolstered their chances of claiming a home play-off semi-final.

Wales were 3-0 ahead when they earned a corner in the 76th minute which saw Davies net his first international goal on his 68th outing for his country.

The Spurs defender found space inside the six-yard box to outjump two Belarusian players and nodded home Harry Wilson’s corner.

Davies came close to opening the scoring earlier in the match when his volley from the edge of the area was spilled by Chernik which allowed Aaron Ramsey to tap home into an empty net.

The 28-year-old last found himself on the scoresheet in a 3-1 Carabao Cup victory against Stoke City in December of last year (transfermarkt).
