Goalkeeper Paul Jones had a match he will be unable to forget as his 50th appearance for Wales ended in farce.
Complete with a silly haircut, left, veteran Jones had a nightmare against Slovakia who crushed Wales 5-1 at the Millennium Stadium, their worst home result for 98 years.
Jones’ misery began as Wales were 1-0 down. A trademark sliced clearance while under no pressure landed at the feet of striker Mintal who fired into an empty net from 35 yards.
Mintal smashed in his second from distance a minute after Gareth Bale had brought Wales back into the game but by this time the home nation trailed 3-1 at the break.
Jones was caught off his line and again beaten from long range for Slovakia’s fourth, with Karhan curling in from 30 yards.
