BBC Sport - Euro 2016 countdown: Wales heartache goes on as Russia win Euro 2004 play-off
Rewind: Russia crush Wales' Euro hopes
- From the section Football
Mark Hughes' Wales team suffer one of the most heartbreaking nights in Welsh football as they lose 1-0 to Russia in their Euro 2004 qualifying play-off in November 2003.
Wales had held Russia to a goalless draw in their first-leg in Moscow and seemed favourites to end their major finals hoodoo and qualify for a championship for the first time since 1958.
But on their home turf, Wales were defeated by Vadim Evseev's first-half winner as the Russians were Welsh football's latest party-poopers at the Millennium Stadium.
