James’ nasty-looking collision
Daniel James started for Wales on Sunday evening, as they went head-to-head with Croatia.
Croatia would take the lead nine minutes into the tie through Nikola Vlasic.
However, Ryan Giggs’ side would pull one back via Gareth Bale just before the interval, with the game finishing 1-1.
During the tie, Manchester United winger Daniel James was involved in a fairly nasty-looking collision, in which he looked to be knocked out.

However, after the game, James stated that he is fine, and didn’t get knocked out:
“There was a few tackles flying in but you always expect it in these games.
“I’m fine. I think he just caught me in the head but I didn’t get knocked out fortunately.” As quoted by the Evening Standard.
Giggs on James, Bale and Ampadu
Wales boss Ryan Giggs would also provide an update on James after the Croatia clash, along with updates on Ethan Ampadu and Gareth Bale:
“They’re both (James and Ampadu) fine.
“Ethan’s fine, DJ went down and stayed down with a bit of acting really, but the medical staff went over and he was compos mentis.
“Then at half-time we did all the tests and he passed it, so they’re both fine.
“Gareth just got a bit of cramp towards the end but he didn’t want to come off. It’s a shame that he did get that – it was about 10 minutes at the end we were down one player.” As quoted by the Evening Standard.
Manchester United vs Liverpool
Last night’s game was Wales’ final tie of the current international break, and Man United fans will likely be hoping that James is fully fit ahead of their next outing.
Man United play host to Liverpool this coming Sunday.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side head into the weekend’s action all the way down in 12th place in the Premier League.
Liverpool, on the other hand, sit top of the PL table, having won their opening eight league outings this campaign.
