So unlucky for Northern Ireland - and especially their own goal scorer, the excellent veteran Gareth McAuley. You won't see many sides handle Gareth Bale more better than that, but one quality delivery opened the door. Wales celebrate their win on the pitch and, to their credit, the NI fans are still in full voice too.
