KI­EF­FER MOORE says Wales are ready to re­alise their Euro 2020 dream even if their style would not win any prizes in the beauty stakes.

Wi­gan striker Moore has made a huge im­pact in Wales’ Euro 2020 qual­i­fy­ing cam­paign as Ryan Giggs’ side have turned their for­tunes around.

Moore scored his sec­ond goal in three qual­i­fiers as Wales beat Azer­bai­jan 2-0 in Baku on Satur­day evening, leav­ing the Drag­ons in con­trol of their own destiny head­ing into the fi­nal game.

Wales will se­cure au­to­matic qual­i­fi­ca­tion for next sum­mer’s Euro­pean Cham­pi­onship fi­nals by beat­ing Hun­gary at a sold-out Cardiff City Sta­dium on Tues­day.

“Some­times it is not the pret­ti­est foot­ball, but if it is ef­fec­tive it is def­i­nitely worth do­ing,” said the 6ft 5ins Moore, whose ae­rial abil­ity has pro­vided Wales with an ex­tra di­men­sion to their game.

“De­fend­ers are maybe not used to go­ing up for head­ers quite a lot in in­ter­na­tional foot­ball.

“I be­lieve we get a mas­sive ad­van­tage from do­ing that.

“I am very suited to the way this team sets up and plays.

“As you can see I am reap­ing the re­wards and work­ing hard for the team as well.”
