Football Scores: Wales 1-0 Ukraine

An unfortunate own goal from Andriy Yarmolenko helped Wales produce one of the narrow football scores of the weekend in World Cup qualifying. In front of an emotional atmosphere at the Cardiff stadium, Yarmolenko headed past his own keeper from a Gareth Bale free-kick. It was goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey who was the star of the match as he pulled off a number of incredible saves to keep out a Ukrainian side that gave everything. He made a total of nine saves to help Wales reach the World Cup after 64 years.

Managers Reaction

Wales captain Gareth Bale: “The result is the greatest result in the history of Welsh football. We’re ecstatic, we’re going to a World Cup. It’s what dreams are made of, it’s what we’ve been working towards since we first came here. I’m speechless, we’re so happy, we did it for all our amazing fans and words can’t describe how I’m feeling at the moment. It was a difficult game, I haven’t done so much over the last four weeks because of my back spasm, it was tough to get through the game but the most important thing was to get through.”

Man of the match Wayne Hennessey: “It’s absolutely incredible, not just for me but everyone who’s been on this pitch tonight, the lads who didn’t get on, the staff, everyone. It was probably my best game in a Wales shirt, at such a key stage obviously. You have to give credit to Ukraine which is a fantastic team, but I’m absolutely buzzing. We’ve got a good generation, young lads, older lads who have been there, even the members of staff. They’ve been fantastic and fully deserve it.”
