Wales Snatched Win­ner Against Slo­vakia

The Kurdish Globe - - SPORTS -

Wales snatched a late win­ner against Slo­vakia in their Euro 2016 opener to make a dra­matic re­turn to ma­jor tour­na­ments af­ter a 58-year ab­sence. Gareth Bale's dip­ping free-kick gave Wales a half-time lead and sent their fans into rap­tures. Slo­vakia's On­drej Duda pun­ished pas­sive Welsh de­fend­ing to equalise. But sub­sti­tute Hal Rob­son-Kanu's scuffed fin­ish won it for Wales, who top Group B and have an ex­cel­lent chance of reach­ing the last 16.
