Gareth Bale’s Wales were made to wait in their bid to secure qualification for next year’s European Championship from group B as they were held to a 0-0 draw by Israel at the Cardiff City Stadium.

Simon Church had a late goal ruled out for offside as Chris Coleman’s side were left frustrated in Cardiff despite maintaining their unbeaten record in Group B. 

Gareth Bale’s Wales side needed one more victory to ensure a first appearance at a major competition since the legendary John Charles inspired them to the World Cup in 1958.
