Craig Davies said he was in dream world on Tuesday night as his Wales side took on Croatia and Luka Modric – a player he’s used to competing against on FIFA.
The Barnsley striker was recalled to the Wales squad after bagging eight goals for the Reds this season. He made an impressive appearance as a substitute for 25 minutes in the 2-1 win against Scotland on Friday and was an unused sub in the 2-0 defeat to Croatia on Tuesday night.
Davies, who has now won seven international caps, told the Chronicle: “It was an unbelievable experience seeing Modric like that. From the bench you really get to appreciate how good he is with both feet.
“I really enjoyed my week with the Wales squad. I’d have only been sat at home and instead of playing with Modric on FIFA on the PS3 but I was in the same game as him – it was unreal.
“I am always Chelsea or Real Madrid on FIFA so never really play as myself for Barnsley.”
Davies, who returned to training at Oakwell on Thursday, felt he should have had a penalty in the win against Scotland. He said: “I was brought down and can’t believe the ref didn’t give it.”
