Wales kicked off their Euro 2016 qualifying campaign with a dramatic victory over Andorra, courtesy of two Gareth Bale goals.

Andorra took the lead from the penalty spot in the early stages, when captain Ildefons Lima slotted home, though Bale pulled Wales level in the 22nd minute, after he lost his marker to head into the corner.

It looked set to be a frustrating evening for Wales but Bale struck again in the 81st minute from a superb free-kick to earn the three points.

Wales manager Chris Coleman said: “Not many players on the planet who can score a goal like that under pressure with the time ticking. Magnificent.

“We were bemused by the penalty decision. There was contact but we thought it was harsh and we’re disappointed.

“We’ve come to a place where we’re expected to win easy but we never expected that.”

“We’ve got to stick together. We’ve lost one in six. The boys are doing well.

“We’ve won the first qualifier and we’re at home next. The following we brought we here was fantastic. A great turn out.

“We’ve matured as a team. We’re looking forward to playing Bosnia at home next month. We’ve got to take the game to them.”

“We showed a lot of courage and I am very proud of the players. Before we kicked the ball, because of Andorra’s record, there was a lot of expectation for us to win.

“I never once complained about the pitch before but I can now we’ve won, it wasn’t great.”

He added: “We’ve played a lot better and lost. Andorra defended for their lives.

“It was all about getting the points. They stayed calm in certain situations where they could have lost their heads.”
