International round-up: Chester heading for Finals

11 October 2015

Wales latest nation to qualify

JAMES Chester can look forward to Euro 2016 next summer after Wales qualified for their first major football tournament since 1958.

The Albion defender was an unused substitute in Wales' 2-0 defeat to Bosnia-Herzegovina.

Needing just a point to qualify, Chris Coleman's side were beaten by Milan Djuric and Vedad Ibisevic's second-half goals in Zenica.

But they went through anyway thanks to Cyprus' 2-1 victory in Israel, sparking wild celebrations in Zenica.

Wales complete their Group B schedule with a home game against Andorra on Tuesday.

Assuming Wales win their final game, they wlll top the group - on the basis of head-to-head results - if current leaders Belgium fail to beat Israel on the same night.
