Serbia draw 1-1 with Wales in World Cup qualifier

Nemanja Gudelj released a measured pass behind Davies and it was a lovely flick from Aleksandar Prijovic that Mitrovic dispatched inside Wayne Hennessey's near post.

Ramsey showed fantastic composure and audacity to chip the penalty in a passable imitation of Antonin Panenka's famous effort for Czechoslovakia at the same stadium back in 1976.

Having praised Ramsey for an inspired display, Coleman was also delighted with his penalty, scored at the same end as Czech midfielder Antonin Panenka's original dinked spot kick against Germany goalkeeper Sepp Maier in the Euro 1976 final.

Giroud, Alexis Sanchez, Xhaka and others have produced but Ramsey's Panenka penalty to open the scoring in a top of the table qualifier away to Serbia has to be the best so far. Sam Vokes was a handful all game in the air and he could have doubled his team's lead on the hour mark when he got a clean header from a Ledley corner just six yards out, but he headed over. Thankfully it went in.

Aaron Ramsey has had a hand in five goals in his last six global appearances for Wales (two goals, three assists).

'That's my first one but I felt I knew that's what I was going to do before stepping up and taking it.

Asked about the consequences of missing in that fashion, he replied: "That is the risk you take". It is a good point in the end, ' added Ramsey.

"All of a sudden, from wherever it comes, the crowd start getting really rowdy in these places", Coleman said.

"He is a vital player for us and I look at Aaron even when Gareth is there", said Coleman. We have a load of youngsters with us as well, which I think has stepped up the quality again.

"I think that scarred anyone who was involved in that game", admitted the 27-year-old.

"For me, it was the worst night in a Welsh shirt", Allen said.

"But I had no doubt he'd score because he's playing with such confidence at the moment, his overall performance was absolutely outstanding. But our mentality in any camp is, whether it's the first game or the last, that we approach it in the same way".

"His input tonight was enormous".

Wales were always likely to sit deep and hope for a break, especially without the suspended Gareth Bale, and so it proved.

The lowest moment of manager Chris Coleman's five-year reign came in September 2012 when Wales were crushed 6-1 by Serbia in a 2014 World Cup qualifier.

"You've seen it time and again, football is odd, and we might be soon talking about one of the best Wales performances in years. We are looking forward to the challenges left in his campaign".

"The journey from the hotel normally takes 20 minutes and they'll say "You know what, tonight, we've got to leave now because it will be mayhem". And one of the reasons is that I suffered there, we suffered there - and it was my fault.

"The group is still very much in the balance". We expect to see a closely-contested clash which will go down the wire. Find us on Facebook too!
