Wales have qualified for their first World Cup in 64 years after beating Ukraine 1-0 in a playoff final in Cardiff.

Former Connah’s High School pupils Wayne Hennessey pulled off a string of saves to keep the Ukrainian side at bay.

Hennessey made nine saves including an incredible left-hand stop to prevent substitute Artem Dovbyk from heading in Vitaly Mykolenko’s cross in the 83rd minute.

A Gareth Bale 34th-minute free-kick which deflected into the net off West Ham’s Andriy Yarmolenko was enough to decide the play-off tie.
