Wales behind in Bosnia - but still set to qualify tonight

Wales are trailing 1-0 against Bosnia-Herzegovina with 15 minutes remaining, but are still on course to qualify for Euro 2016 tonight, because of results elsewhere.

Milan Djuric's header gave the hosts the lead in Zenica - but challengers Israel are level 1-1 against Cyprus with 15 minutes left.

If Israel do not win in Jerusalem then they cannot catch Wales, with one game remaining in Group B, and so Chris Coleman's men may be celebrating tonight, even if they lose themselves.

Half time: Bosnia-Herzegovina 0-0 Wales

Wales are on course to book their place at Euro 2016 tonight, after a goalless first half against Bosnia-Herzegovina.

Their best opening came shortly before half-time, when Aaron Ramsey broke free on the right, and Wales were penalised as Neil Taylor tried to force the ball home from close range.

A draw will be enough for Chris Coleman's side to secure qualification for their first major tournament finals since 1958.

Elsewhere in Group B, Israel are also level 0-0 against Cyprus in Jerusalem. Anything less than a victory for Israel would see Wales through tonight, no matter what their result.

Wales created chances, but couldn't finish, says Gatland

Warren Gatland says there were times when Wales played 'some pretty good rugby' against the Wallabies.

Asked about injuries to Liam Williams and Jamie Roberts, Gatland said both sides were battered and bruised by the encounter. Roberts was taken off by physios and was being assessed and Gatland said they weren't sure whether Williams had re-injured his foot - an issue which left him out of the warm-up games.

He says Wales created chances, but couldn't finish against Australia, which was something they'd look at ahead of next week's South Africa quarter-final.

Warburton says it's disappointing to lose but has no regrets

Sam Warburton says he has no regrets after Wales lost to Australia and praised the Wallabies' defence.

The Wales captain said it was disappointing they didn't score against Australia when they were down to 13 men, but at the same time they didn't concede any tries against one of the best teams in the world.

He said it's an 'absolute privilege' to be playing against the top teams and Wales are looking forward to South Africa.


Bale named in Wales team to face Bosnia-Herzegovina

Wales have named their starting line-up for tonight's Euro 2016 qualifier in Bosnia-Herzegovina, with star forward Gareth Bale included after recovering from a calf injury.

Roma forward Edin Dzeko is only on the bench for the hosts in Zenica.

A draw or a victory tonight would see Chris Coleman's side qualify for their first major tournament finals since 1958.
