Wales defeat Austria in the World Cup qualifier

Wales emerged victorious in the match against Austria, beating them by a 1-0 score the European World Cup qualifying game in the Group D on Saturday, 2nd of September.

The goal was scored by Wales’ Ben Woodburn, who made a stunning international debut with an amazing long-ranged shot. It was a harsh battle between the two, but Woodburn’s goal in the second half has given the home side a great opportunity to boost their chances for a 2018 World Cup qualification.

Austria’s dangerous moments came often in the first half with Marko Arnautovic threats and David Alaba’s performance, but neither of them could make the difference in the most critical moment. It all came to Woodburn, who left the bench in the second half and scored a brilliant goal from a 20-yard shot.

Wales’ chances to qualify for the World Cup were and are still quite little, with the Republic of Ireland two points ahead and the leaders’ of the Group, Serbia. However, not everything is still lost, and their win in this match has shown that. It was highly probable, that Austria would score in this encounter, but few could foresee that Wales would win in such a way. Despite the fact that they will have to face some fierce opponents in the near future, there are always moments where you could never tell which detail would make the difference. As we had seen, it is still not all lost for Wales, and they might be still able to make the difference in desperate times as could be seen in this match.
