WATCH: Joe Allen scores screamer for Wales in Austria
Last Updated: 06/10/16 10:31pm
Joe Allen scored a peach of a half volley for Wales to open the scoring in their 2-2 draw with Austria in Vienna.
Not regarded as a natural goalscorer, Allen has now scored three goals in his last three games for club and country and this finish was an example of just how confident he is in front of goal.
Wales were twice pegged back by Stoke City's Marco Arnautovic as Austria held the Euro semi-finalists.
In a battle of the two top ranked teams in Group D, Wales led twice thanks to that Allen stunner and a Kevin Wimmer own-goal but Arnautovic scored two well-taken equalisers.
The result leaves four teams all on four points in the group after both Republic of Ireland and Serbia won their respective matches. Next up for Wales is Georgia on Sunday, where they may have to play without Allen, who was substituted with 20 minutes to play with a knee injury.
