Spain beats Albania to score World Cup berth

Spain beats Albania to score World Cup berth

IT wasn't to be for Joe Allen and Wales last night as their World Cup dream died at the hands of the Republic of Ireland in Cardiff.

A 2-0 win over Moldova at the Aviva Stadium on Friday night has given Ireland one final chance, which they must take.

For Wales, the stakes are equally high, as even though a draw will keep them second it might not be enough for them to reach the play-offs. Wales ended up third behind the Irish and group winners Serbia, who beat Georgia 1-0. We've missed him now for a number of games so we've had our absentees in the past ourselves and we've had to cope and Wales have had to cope without Gareth Bale before. We did well against Norway and were disappointed not to come out of the game with a win in the end.

"What I do know is that, genetically, we're behind", the former Celtic boss said in his post-match press conference. I think it will be a sensational atmosphere and these are the games you want to be involved in.

Surprise semi-finalists at Euro 2016, Wales have not played at a World Cup since 1958 and could finish a qualifying campaign unbeaten for the first time in history. 'They were labelled the golden bunch of players before we qualified for the Euros.

"This was our first defeat at home for four years".

We could go top in the event of an unlikely Serbian defeat.

"Do I fear teams in it?"

In Vienna, McClean's victor came from Irish pressing and quick movement of the ball along with a drilled right footed finish and it was the similar in Cardiff just before the hour mark.

Wales will start as favourites because they have home advantage, but it should be very close to call.

For Seamus' namesake Chris Coleman it was a hard night. "You need patience, but not too much, and after 90 minutes we have to find ourselves in front and we're capable of doing that". The game is set to be one of best in this round of the qualifiers with the monumental prize of obtaining the three points from this game.
