Substitute Aleksandar Trajkovski become the hero of Skopje as his 80th-minute strike earned the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia only their second victory in FIFA World Cup qualifying Group A, moving them above opponents Wales in the process.

Ivan Tričkovski gave the home side the lead on 21 minutes but Aaron Ramsey levelled before the break from the penalty spot. However, Trajkovski was introduced just past the hour and was to settle the game.
