Wales fans have criticised Aston Villa defender Neil Taylor for his performance against Azerbaijan on Friday.

Taylor was in action for Wales in their European Championship Qualifying Group E game against Azerbaijan.

The 30-year-old left-back started the match and played for 80 minutes, as Ryan Giggs’s side won 2-1.


The former Swansea City star was a surprise selection ahead of Ben Davies, and his performance was far from impressive.

Taylor should have done better for the goal that Azerbaijan scored, and he had a disappointing game overall.

Wales fans were not impressed with the display of Taylor against Azerbaijan, and have criticised him on Twitter.

Below are some of the best comments:

Taylor has been on the books of Villa since January 2017 when he joined from Swansea City.

The left-back has been a regular for the Villans, So far this season, the Wales international has made four appearances in the Premier League, while in 2018-19, he made 31 starts in the Championship and in 2017-18 he made 27 starts in the second tier of English football, according to WhoScored.
