Connor Roberts

  • Swansea City (WAL)

Tireless full-back who is as influential in defence as he is in the attacking third for Swansea City and Cymru as he pushes forward from wide positions to deliver crosses into the area. Scored his one and only international goal in the 4-1 win over the Republic of Ireland in September 2018.
