KIEFFER Moore revealed how he changes how he plays when playing international football with Wales and Premier League fixtures for Cherries, using his physicality in different ways.

International referees appear to be far less lenient when it comes to blowing for perceived excess-physicality than their Premier League counterparts.

Such was evident minutes into Wales’ 2-1 defeat to Belgium on Thursday night, with Moore almost immediately penalised for using his arms to bully a Belgian defender off the ball.

Moore went on to score despite his side’s defeat, not needing to use his strength, with his height leading to a towering header at the back post.

The Premier League and English game has long been described as one of the most gruelling and physical styles of football in the world, with the 30-year-old getting to grips with life in the top-flight after working his way up from non-league.

When asked by the Daily Echo back in August if he tailored his style of play depending on referees, he replied: “I feel like there's a lot of moments where you have to not change play, but alter your play.

“I use my physicality and certain other aspects in different ways and yeah, of course, referees are going to be a lot more diligent in certain aspects, but internationally, I've played international football and I know what to expect.”

“Bringing that kind of aspect to the team and into my game and it helps us get us up the pitch and hopefully come away with the three points.”

Moore and Wales are next in action on Sunday, when they face Poland at the Cardiff City Stadium. The Welsh require a win to remain in the A tier of the Nations League. Moore’s clubmate Chris Mepham will miss out, after reaching the limit of yellow cards in the group stage.
