Wales play a draw against Serbia in the World Cup qualifierPosted: June 18, 2017
Wales played a 1-1 draw against Serbia in the World Cup qualifier remaining on the 3rd place in the Group D on 11th of June.
Wales gained the lead 10 minutes before the break after Aaron Ramsey successfully converted a penalty.
After the break, Serbia’s pressure has increased much and it was hard for the visitor side to maintain the lead after numerous efforts.
It was Aleksandr Mitrovic who fired the equaliser in the 73rd minute to regain Serbia’s image as the deserved leaders of the Group D.
Mitrovic’s late equaliser has saved Serbia from falling a place bellow, but it has drastically lowered Wales’ chances of reaching the World Cup next year.
Wales’ World Cup qualification would have ended with a defeat in this match, and a draw means that they could still pass if they would win the remaining four games.
They led a resilient game considering the absence of such players as Neil Taylor and Gareth Bale.
Under the support of the hosts’ fans, the visitor side showed a brilliant defence and performance in the first half after Ramsey’s opener.
Towards the end of the game, the Serb pressure has increased managing to weaken Welsh defence, where Mitrovic timed out right to launch the goal from the penalty area past the visitors’ keeper, Wayne Hennessey.
Wales remain four points behind Serbia on the third place in the Group D, while Serbia is maintaining the lead.
