FT: Serbia 6 Wales 1

The referee blows his whistle for full-time. This has been a very, very, very bad night for Wales with Serbia claiming a 6-1 victory. The hosts impressed but they were helped by some very poor defending from the Welsh.

We enter the final moments of this match with nothing to smile about for Wales.

GOAL SULEJMANI! Serbia make it six of the best as Sulejmani beats Myhill with a looping effort from 25 yards. That was a good strike but it was helped by a deflection.

Good work from Bale as he tracks back to win the ball from Kolarov with a sliding challenge. Not much for Wales to enjoy as this match nears the final whistle.

Serbia make their second change of the night with Djuricic replaced by Dejan Lekic.

GOAL IVANOVIC! Wales clear the corner but the ball drops to Ivanovic on the edge of the box and he fires home a half-volley. Serbia lead 5-1 and deserve to do so.

Tosic tumbles under a clumsy challenge from Blake and the defender rightly becomes the first player to be booked tonight.

Gunter's cross from the right falls to Morison but the striker continues his tough night as his lay-off fails to find Church.

This has been very disappointing for Wales. Poor defending has been their main problem but there are plenty of other issues for manager Chris Coleman to think about.

No chance created from the corner as Tosic's effort is easily claimed by Myhill inside his six-yard box.

GOAL BALE! Bale fires home a free-kick with sensational power to beat Stojkovic from 25 yards. That really was fantastic from the Wales winger.

Matthews' long throw from the left is met by Edwards but he can't get any power on his header and Serbia are able to clear from the edge of their six-yard box.

Wales enjoy a welcome spell of possession but waste it as Bale's crossfield ball from the left to Gunter goes out of play.

Tosic's corner from the left is met by the head of Ivanovic but the defender's effort is deflected behind for another flag-kick.

Wales have it all do. They haven't offered much as an attacking force and look very shaky at the back. Not a good mix.

The replay of that goal shows just how bad the defending was. Not very good is a generous description.

Wales are getting very nervous at the back. Gunter is the latest defender to slice a clearance out of play.

Matthews does well to halt Zoran Tosic's run and knock the ball behind for a corner. Wales win a free-kick from the resulting flag-kick.

This has been a bright opening from Wales. They are looking good in possession and have been winning the aerial battles so far.

Wales can't do anything with the long throw opportunity but they do win a corner from the next move. Aaron Ramsey's flag-kick from the right is headed over the bar by Ashley Williams. This has been a good start from the Welsh.

What Is It That FIFA Actually Do?

That's the question raised timidly by someone sat at the back of the room, whilst others remind that UEFA aren't perfect either. Plus a few more gone on to better XIs...

Time To Step Up, Mr Platini...

UEFA should step up and extend the Euros to replace FIFA's tarnished World Cup, say a couple of mailboxers. Also: all hail Carlo, King of the Kop, and plenty more Budget XIs...
