Match Report
Wales failed to achieve the required win to keep any hope we had of World Cup qualification. It was a disappointing performance from a Welsh team hit by suspension and injuries, and have now gone eight matches in Group 5 without a win. It was the lowest crowd Wales have had at the Millennium Stadium for an International and all must have been very disappointed with the performance of the team.

"We have to begin turning the draws into wins and I'm sure we are not too far away from that. The team is definitely making progress and we just need to turn that corner now." Ryan Giggs on yet another Welsh draw.

"But I still think we are going in the right direction. We are a much harder team to beat, we are organised and we have now drawn six of our eight games. Against very good eastern European sides away from home, we have been splendid." Mark Hughes on the World Cup campaign.
