After making his debut for Wales from the bench during a 2-2 draw with the Czech Republic on Friday, Sorba Thomas was involved from the very start in yesterday’s 1-0 victory in Estonia.
Kieffer Moore’s 12th-minute strike proved to be the difference in Tallinn, and whilst it was not the most convincing Welsh performance, it was a vital three points to secure in their pursuit of qualifying for the World Cup.
Thomas, who has enjoyed a tremendous rise from the National League since early this year, has emerged as a star at Huddersfield thus far this season.

It is hard to believe that this time last year, Thomas was operating in the National League.
However, it has been a year of exponential progress from the young winger, who will be eager to maintain this form into the rest of the season.
Thomas’ ability to get past a man, coupled with his final third productivity, make him an excellent option for Carlos Corberan to have at his disposal, whilst his influence in a Wales shirt could continue to grow.
Thomas is a very exciting prospect, who has the ability and mentality to remain an integral player in both domestic and international football this year.
