Hennessey Equals International Caps Record

12 October 2018

Wayne Hennessey's appearance in Thursday evening's friendly means he equals Mile Jedinak's record for the number of international caps won whilst playing for Crystal Palace.

This home match for Wales against a Spanish side who had not lost inside 90 minutes since Euro 2016 was always going to be a difficult test and so the game at the Principality Stadium proved as the visitors completed a 4-1 victory.

Hennessey was once again named by Ryan Giggs as Wales number one, his 38th cap whilst with The Eagles, but it was a disappointing evening as the home side found themselves 3-0 down within half an hour of the action getting underway.

Paco Alcacer scored two well-taken goals with a header from Sergio Ramos in between giving Spain the perfect start as they look to bounce back after their second round exit against hosts Russia in this World Cup.

Wales conceded more than four goals in a home game for the first time since October 2006 when Marc Bartra finished off a move to net Spain’s fourth goal of the night.

With just a minute remaining of the night’s action there was a consolation goal for the home side when a fine cross from David Brooks was headed home by Sam Vokes.

Hennessey’s international break now continues with a trip to the Republic Of Ireland for a Nations League match on Tuesday evening.
