Wales move above the Republic of Ireland into second place in Group D as Chris Coleman’s men secure a vital three points against Moldova.

Hal Robson-Kanu and Aaron Ramsey scored two late goals in a vital victory in Wales’ bid to reach next year’s World Cup in Russia.

This is Wales’ second successive victory after Chris Coleman’s side beat Austria 1-0 on Saturday night thanks to debutant, Ben Woodbury’s impressive goal.

Woodburn also proved influential in the win over Moldova, pacing up the left wing and providing the cross for Robson-Kanu to head home the opening goal.

As the Republic of Ireland lost 0-1 to Serbia at Dublin’s Aviva Stadium tonight, Wales have jumped over Martin O’Neill’s side into second with 14 points, 1 point above the Republic of Ireland.

With only two games remaining in the World Cup qualifiers, Chris Coleman will hope to secure the second place – and a place in the play-offs – as Serbia have a four point advantage at the top of group D.

Wales will travel to face Georgia on the 9th of October before their final game of group D at home to the Republic of Ireland on the 9th of October.
