Serbia tops World Cup qualifying group after draw with Wales
Chris Coleman reveals he's still haunted by Wales' 6-1 loss against Serbia in 2012
16 June, 2017, 06:23
Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey put Chris Coleman's men in front with a cheeky first-half penalty, but Newcastle forward Aleksandar Mitrovic levelled to make it 1-1 and keep Serbia and Republic of Ireland four points clear with four matches left.
A moment of madness from Serbia keeper Vladimir Stojkovic saw him try to shepherd a long ball out of play.
At the same stadium where Czechoslovakia's Antonin Panenka scored the winning goal in a shoot-out against West Germany in the 1976 European Championship final and gave his name to the chipped penalty, Ramsey repeated the act to give Wales a 35th-minute lead.
"I knew what I was going to do before stepping up and taking it".
Asked about the consequences of missing in that fashion, he replied: "That is the risk you take".
There was further concern in the Wales defence following some pinball in the visitors' box and Aleksandar Mitrovic, scorer of Serbia's late equaliser at Cardiff in November, sounded further warning of his aerial ability when he headed just wide. "But I've had to mention it [now] because people think: 'If we don't get the right result or performance, what's my future?' But there's another 12 points after that and if it's second place that we're chasing, but it's doable, then I've got to absolutely go for that with everything that I've got. But it is a good point in the end". It's what we thought as soon as he did it.
"I think it would be like that if I went back to Belgrade with my wife for the weekend!"
Coleman guided Wales to the semi-finals of Euro 2016
"When the national anthem started, that's what I'll always remember", the Wales manager said.
Wales have drawn five worldwide games in succession for the first time ever. "His input was enormous".
Wales were always likely to sit deep and hope for a break, especially without the suspended Gareth Bale, and so it proved. So after the victory in the 1st round over Moldova, the matches against Austria, Georgia, Serbia and Ireland ended in a draw.
"The experienced players in the squad like Ramsey, Joe Allen and Ashley Williams will help the youngsters and they won't feel overawed because we've seen the spirit that Welsh team have got and I'm sure that'll carry the younger players through".
"It was a tough game but, overall, we'll be happier with a point than Serbia".
"The group is still very much in the balance. We did that before and know what happened". Serbia have struggled to attract decent crowds in the past, but - with World Cup prospects looking positive - over 40,000 are expected at the Rajko Mitic Stadium this time.
"We have achieved our objective which was the three points in a hard game for the time of year", said Lopetegui.
