 Excellent Performance
An excellent and a positive performance especially in the second half earned Wales a 1-1 drawn in Kiev. The youngsters shone and Hartson was a rock up-front.

Wales were dealt a severe first-half blow as Mark Delaney limped off with a recurrence of his hamstring injury, but the players fought back and kept their shape and got a well deserved equaliser without mentioning they could have go on to win.
