Bale plays 90 as Wales beat Austria in crunch qualifier

Gareth Bale played the full 90 minutes as Wales breathed new life into their World Cup qualifying hopes with a 1-0 win at home against Austria. The visitors had the better chances in the first half, but were wasteful, with Arnautovic and Sabitzer both going close.

The break through eventually came through Liverpool teenager, Ben Woodburn, who scored a scorcher for his first international goal.

Wales are now four points behind group leaders Serbia with three games to play, but the gap between Chris Coleman’s side and the Republic of Ireland, who drew in Georgia, has been reduced to two.
