Daniel James went down after a harsh collision with Domagoj Vida which saw the Welshman get knocked out for a second.

Manchester United’s new ace, Daniel James looked like he could be seriously injured after leaving the pitch last night against Croatia.

However, the brave winger continued playing afterward, eventually resulting in the match ending 1-1 as Wales hit one back after going 1-0 down.

However, the story of the day was Daniel James. United fans are looking ahead to playing Liverpool in the next Premier League weekend.

Considering that James is one of the rare good performers, Red Devils would hate to lose him ahead of such an important match.

However, there’s no need to be concerned, at least if you ask Ryan Giggs.

“Dan James went down and stayed down. A bit of acting really,” Giggs commented according to Express.

“The medical staff went over. He was a compos mentis.

“We did tests at half-time and he passed them. He’s fine.”

James wasn’t the only one down with injury last night. The Welsh scorer and their best player, Gareth Bale got injured toward the end of the match.

Given that Giggs had already made three substitutions, Bale was forced to carry on until the match ended.

“Ethan Ampadu is fine.

“Gareth Bale got a bit of cramp. He didn’t want to come off. It was a fantastic performance.

“It was a shame he got that for the last 10 minutes, so we were down one player really.”

On the other end, Luka Modric suffered an injury.

However, according to the first pieces of information, it isn’t anything serious, and Madrid midfielder should be available for El Clasico on 26 October.

Wales still has a shot at qualifying to Euro 2020, but getting past Hungary and Slovakia will be a daunting task for Giggs’ men.
