Wales clawed themselves off the foot of 2014 FIFA World Cup qualifying Group A by defeating the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia in Cardiff to leave Zoran Stratev's men bottom of the section.

The visitors had got the better of Chris Coleman's team in Skopje in September but the Welsh gained revenge as Simon Church struck in the second half. Captain Aaron Ramsey had a late penalty saved but the hosts had done enough and will hope to get something from their final group game in Belgium to help ensure they avoid the wooden spoon.
