Wales manager Ryan Giggs has given an injury update on Cardiff City forward Kieffer Moore.
Moore picked up an injury in the defeat to England on Thursday night, and many Bluebirds supporters would have had their hearts in their mouths thinking about the possibility of the striker being out with a long-term injury.
However, Giggs has confirmed that Moore has picked up a minor toe injury and suggested the forward could even be fit for Wales’ next game, against Republic of Ireland in the UEFA Nations League.
Giggs has expressed that he’ll give Moore as much time as possible to recover and stated that he won’t be taking any risks when it comes to the injury of the striker.
Speaking to Wales Online, Giggs said: “Kieffer had a problem with his toe and then towards the end Chris (Mepham) has just taken a knock on his knee.
“We’re going to take as much time as possible.
“Obviously we’re not going to take any risks, but obviously we’re keen for them both to be involved.”

It’s not nice to see a player get injured on international duty as it isn’t just a blow for the country but it’s also a massive blow for club manager Neil Harris who will be planning what side he should put out for the next league game.
It will be interesting to see whether Moore plays any part in Wales’ next game. You feel it would be silly to risk the forward when there’s a lot more football to be played over the next few months.
The striker will be a big player for both club and country this season and with an upcoming European Championship, he’ll hope to hit some form for Cardiff.
