Fresh off the back of Saturday's 1-0 win over Austria, and knowing that another victory would significantly boost their hopes of reaching the play-offs for the World Cup in Russian Federation next year, Wales attacked from the off, putting their opponents under significant pressure.

After Liverpool starlet Ben Woodburn's goalscoring antics, on his Wales debut on Saturday, some in the England setup are asking what could have been.

The Liverpool youngster, who scored on his worldwide debut last Saturday to beat Austria, this time crossed for Hal Robson-Kanu to head Wales in front before Aaron Ramsey's deflected strike in injury time sealed a 2-0 win.

Born in Nottingham, the Liverpool forward could have represented England.

"I do congratulate Ireland on their fighting spirit and I hope they are going to progress further because they will fight with Wales for the next spot in the table".

O'Neill said: "I didn't see it back, but the players are absolutely adamant it was a penalty kick".

But Coleman says his pair of match-winning cameos proved he can handle the pressure.

But he could have opted for England until he made a senior competitive worldwide appearance.

Her apparent change of heart might prompt some MPs to revisit whether they are content to let her continue in office. Pressed to rule out stepping down before the next election, due in 2022, she replied: "I'm not a quitter ".

Liverpool fans have been extremely impressed by the cameo performances of the attacker and some have even dubbed him the "next Gareth Bale".

But does he make Bale feel old? We're delighted to have him.

"The main aim is to get Wales to the World Cup finals and he will be in that set-up if he can do that, so [he needs to] keep his head down and keep on working hard". "We have to go to Moldova and do the same, but the feeling is that we can have momentum again".

It wasn't always pretty, and certainly not easy, but it was a vital and important win, one that set up the trip to Moldova on Tuesday night. "It's been good fun".

Woodburn is likely to play again when Wales take on Moldova in what is a must-win game for their hopes of qualifying for the showpiece event in Russian Federation in 2018.

"We had an ice bath. quiet night". You have to fancy Serbia but we have to try and get second.

The play-off matches will be between the eight best runners-up in the nine qualifying groups and for Wales to finish second they must win their final two matches next month, away to Georgia and then at home to the Republic of Ireland.
