Toshack hails Morison after Wales beat Luxembourg

Millwall marksman Steve Morison will return to club football this weekend after leaving a considerable impression on his international manager.

Wales boss John Toshack was delighted with Morison's contribution in his debut.

Although Enfield-born Morison, who has a Welsh grandmother, did not score during a 5-1 rout of Luxembourg in Llanelli, he did enough to please Toshack before the Euro 2012 qualifiers begin early next month.

“The opposition needed to look out for him,” said Toshack.

“He gave us a presence in attack that regarding the future was interesting. A team without a centre-forward is like a pub without beer.

“Although he didn't score, he did some decent things. He can be pleased with his performance.”

Wales raised their game in the second half, recording a biggest win of Toshack's reign through a Joe Ledley penalty plus goals from Andy King, Ashley Williams and outstanding skipper Craig Bellamy.
