CARDIFF, United Kingdom: Wales ended a shaky period after Daniel James’ late goal gave them a 1-0 win over the Czech Republic just moments ago.

The Manchester United striker completed a Gareth Bale pass with a header nine minutes before the end at Cardiff City Stadium.

Both teams finished the match with 10 men after Czech Republic striker Patrik Schick and Wales defender Connor Roberts were sent off.

After a 3-1 defeat at the hands of Belgium in the opening match of Group E last week, Wales are back on track to find a place to the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

It’s a much -needed tonic for Welsh football following difficulties faced off the pitch that threaten their efforts to qualify.

Once again Wales were led by interim manager Robert Page as boss Ryan Giggs took a break following an issue involving an assault case against a woman last year.

“We found a way to win. We realized we had a great fight and they were always threatening,” Page said.

“They used six players up front and attack through the ball high in the penalty box. But I think we had the best chance and in the end we found a goal at the end.

“Three points so far is great thinking there’s a player who isn’t here. When you come back to bring that player back, there’s going to be something big after this.”
