WALES star Ethan Ampadu broke down in tears after Wales were demolished by England and sent packing from Qatar.

The Welsh were in the game at half-time before the Three Lions went up a gear and won convincingly 3-0.

Ampadu started all three of the Dragons’ group games but could not help them make it through to the knockout stages.

Wales picked up just one point as they finished bottom of Group B after a 64-year wait to be part of a World Cup.

As the final whistle went on their campaign in the Middle East, Ampadu was seen crying into his shirt, knowing his dream of progressing was over.

He sat on the pitch in disbelief as he was consoled by his team-mates.

Three Lions players such as Harry Maguire, Kalvin Phillips and Jordan Henderson also went over to the 22-year-old to pick him up off the floor.

Team-mate Joe Rodon also shed a tear on the pitch as the players went over to applause from their fans.

Meanwhile, Chris Mepham hid his emotion covering his face with his shirt.

Neco Williams also left the pitch in tears earlier after he was subbed off during the game with injury.


Ampadu is currently on loan from Chelsea at Spezia in Serie A.

He will return to club football needing to find form as his side currently 17th in the league.

The versatile player has been capped 40 times by his national side.

But he won’t add to that number in Qatar as Wales go home with USA and England making it to the last-16 with the Netherlands and Senegal waiting respectively.
