Wales qual­ify for Euro 2016

The Kurdish Globe - - NEWS -

Wales reached their first ma­jor tour­na­ment fi­nals in 57 years in bizarre cir­cum­stances as they qual­i­fied for Euro 2016 de­spite de­feat in Bos­nia-Herze­gov­ina.

Need­ing a point to end a wait stretch­ing back to the 1958 World Cup, Chris Coleman's side were beaten by Mi­lan Djuric and Vedad Ibi­se­vic's sec­ond-half goals.

But they went through any­way thanks to Cyprus' 2-1 vic­tory in Is­rael, which sparked wild cel­e­bra­tions from the away fans in Zenica.

Wales' first de­feat of the cam­paign saw them over­taken at the top of Group B by Bel­gium, who qual­i­fied with a 4-1 win in An­dorra.
