DID YOU KNOW? WALES V SERBIA

DID YOU KNOW?

 

1) Gareth Bale scored the first of his six goals in World Cup qualifiers against Serbia, in the 6-1 defeat in Novi Sad in September 2012.

 

2) Bale has now scored 25 international goals, in 64 games for Wales, at the age of 27. Ian Rush, who is the record holder on 28, scored his 25th goal for his country aged 31, in June 1993. 

 

3) Wales have played Serbia twice, but they have also played Serbia & Montenegro on two occasions. 

 

4) In August 2003 they lost 1-0 in Belgrade in a European Championship qualifier and, in the return, at the Millennium Stadium, they were beaten 3-2.

 

5) Despite the defeat, they qualified for the Play-Offs, but went on to lose to Russia over two legs.

 

6) Wales have lost just one of their last 15 European Championship and World Cup qualifiers. That was against Bosnia & Herzegovina in October 2015.

 

7) Their previous qualifying defeat was against Serbia, in the World Cup, in September 2013.

 

8) Wales midfielder Andy King celebrated his 28th birthday on 29 October.

 

9) If Wales captain Ashley Williams plays against Serbia the Everton defender will win his 69th cap and overtake Ivor Allchurch in the all-time caps chart. Williams is currently joint eleventh with Allchurch.

 

10) And goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey is set for his 66th cap, which will bring him level with 13th-placed Brian Flynn.
