Wales manager Ryan Giggs has compared Harry Wilson's free kick technique to former teammate David Beckham and, despite their mounting injury crisis, Liverpool can not recall the youngster from his loan spell at Derby, a source has told ESPN FC.
Giggs hailed his side for their victory and praised Wilson for his brilliant strike. Sky Sports say it is a thigh injury but nothing official has been stated.
It ended in defeat for the boys in green, Harry Wilson's superb free-kick the difference on the night, but Robinson impressed once again after a positive performance from the bench on Saturday evening against Denmark.
Christie had plenty of time to pick his spot but his low effort was palmed away by Wayne Hennessey in the Wales goal.
For Wales the absences of Gareth Bale, Aaron Ramsey and Ethan Ampadu will come as a relief to Ireland as Ryan Giggs makes five changes to the side that lost 4-1 to Spain with James Chester, Matthew Smith, David Brooks, Tom Lawrence and Tyler Roberts all coming in.
"He [Wilson] does it all the time in training: it's practice, practice, practice".
Anyway, the result in Dublin sees Giggs' young charges strengthen their position at the top of Group E with two wins from three Nations League outings. "It's a tough group and now it is in our hands".
Ireland boss Martin O'Neill said: "I felt we should have scored early on, and we are not renowned for scoring a lot of goals so we need to take our chances".
"If you are asking about responsibility for it, I take responsibility for every kick that is made on that field by us. It won't be easy - we have got Denmark at home - but Cardiff City Stadium will be bouncing, we're guaranteed for that, and I'm really looking forward to the challenge now".
Observers of the starlet will be more used to seeing Wilson cut in from the right-hand flank, and this is where he's been played more often than not.
