Bayindir, 25, joined Man United in the summer but is yet to make an appearance for the club.

However for Turkey so far he is yet to put a foot wrong between the posts.

And United fans are keen to see more of the former Fenerbache star.

One posted: “Time to see Altay Bayindir cook.”

A second commented: “If Man United fans want to see Altay Bayindir in action he’s playing now against Wales.”

A third wrote: “Bayindir is finally getting game time vs Wales.”

A fourth said: “Altay Bayindir master class.”

Another added: “First look at Bayindir.”


United fans will be hoping that the goalkeeper can prove himself with Andre Onana suffering an injury scare.

Bayindir did make a key save in the first half as he stopped a deflected effort from Wales forward Brennan Johnson from finding its way into the net.

Onana is thought to have picked up a groin injury during Cameroon’s clash against Mauritius.

A statement from Cameroon read: “The Cameroonian football federation informs public opinion that player Andre Onana, injured and out injured during the match against Mauritius on November 17 in Douala, is not part of the delegation of the Indomitable Lions currently in Benghazi.

“The medical imaging carried out by the doctors of the national selection revealed a condition in the pubis.

“Fecafoot (Cameroon FA) wishes a speedy recovery to the Cameroonian international.”

Bayindir will also be hoping for some game time in January as Onana is still expected to take part in the African Cup of Nations.
