Derby County forward Tom Lawrence picked up his 12th cap for Wales on Tuesday evening - and he marked the occasion by scoring his second international goal.
The wideman was named in the starting line-up for Wales’ friendly against World Cup bound Panama at Cardiff City Stadium in their final game of 2017.
Lawrence, who joined Derby from Premier League Leicester City back in August, hit the net with a right-foot strike from inside the box with 75 minutes on the clock to give his country the lead. However, the visitors levelled to earn a 1-1 draw in injury time through Armando Cooper.
After missing out on a place in next summer’s tournament in Russia, Wales boss Chris Coleman used the game as an opportunity to blood a number youngsters.
Lawrence, who has recently established himself as a regular feature on the international stage, was handed another chance to stake his claim for a regular starting berth ahead of the 2020 European Championships qualification campaign, which will begin next year.
Derby midfielder Joe Ledley was named on the bench in the Welsh capital but failed to feature, alongside a number of other senior players.
Elsewhere, Derby Under-23s midfielder Alex Babos was an unused substitute for Wales’ Under-21s as they drew 0-0 at home to Romania in their latest UEFA Under 21 Championships qualifier in Bangor.
The visitors had two players sent off in the second half, but they held firm to frustrate the hosts and claim a point.
Babos, who was also an unused substitute as Wales’ Under 21s fell to a 4-0 defeat to Bosnia & Herzegovina at the back end of last week, was on international duty for the first time but is still waiting to win his first cap.
Finally, Academy youngster Louie Sibley was named in the starting line-up as England’s Under-17s recorded an impressive 2-1 win over Germany at Rotherham United’s New York Stadium, before a crowd of over 7,000 supporters.
