  1. All night long...

    Wales

    It's the party that never stops.

    The Wales feel-good train continues to boogie through the stations - all the way to Russia?

    You wouldn't bet against it.

    Goodnight everyone, thanks for your company.

  2. Rain stops play

    Albania 1-1 Macedonia (suspended 77 mins)

    albania

    Soggy.

    Very soggy.

    So soggy in fact that Albania's game with Macedonia was suspended after 77 minutes with the score at 1-1.

    They'll come back tomorrow to finish the last 13 minutes - hopefully in slightly drier conditions.

  3. So who is next for Wales?

    Wales will travel to Vienna on Thursday, 6 October for their next group game against Austria and will then host Georgia three days later.

    Those two teams played earlier and Austria won 2-1.

  4. 'The next one is even bigger'

    Wales 4-0 Moldova

    Coleman

    Wales boss Chris Coleman on Sky Sports: "It's three points isn't it? We had to get off to a good start in the first game.

    "It was going to be tough and we had to be patient and disciplined and we were. We had a good level of professionalism and the supporters were great. The players got the ball and could have scored more.

    "After 30 minutes I wasn't anxious. Had we come in at half-time 0-0 I may have changed it around to ask different questions. But when we got the goal they had to come and attack us a bit more and we exploited that.

    "I know we're expected to beat Moldova but we still have to do the job. The next one is even bigger than this one."

    Wales 4-0 Moldova

    Ex-Wales striker on BBC Radio 5 live

    Moldova were impressive early on and you can see why they cause problems defensively for teams. They were difficult to play against for the first 25 minutes and it took an unbelievable cross from Gareth Bale for Sam Vokes’ goal. 

    Wales had to use different tactics tonight, they had to push the game in their favour, go and get the first goal. Moldova were happy to sit back and leave on up front. They were stubborn opponents, but once Wales got in front there was no way back.

    Serbia and the Republic of Ireland are one of Wales' main challengers in terms of winning the group, so a draw between them,  was the ideal result.

  6. 'It was a convincing win'

    Wales 4-0 Moldova

    Joe Allen

    Wales midfielder Joe Allen, who scored his first Wales goal, on Sky Sports: "It's been a while coming. It was a convincing win and what we needed.

    "We didn't want to come unstuck today and wanted to use the momentum we had and the onus is on us now to keep it up."

    Ex-Wales striker on BBC Radio 5 live

    That was a great win and the perfect start. Moldova were awful, it was a comfortable win as you will see and great start to the qualifying campaign.

  9. 'It's time to make more history'

    Wales 4-0 Moldova

    Two-goal scorer Gareth Bale on Sky Sports: "We know these games are very difficult, the teams can be difficult to break down but we're learning to cope with that sort of play.

    "We enjoyed the past but it's history now and it's time to make some more."

    Richard: 3 points. 4 scored. 0 conceded. No injuries. No bookings. Perfect.

    JavelBleach: Well, #Wales should demolish #Serbia home & away, & leave #Ireland struggling for an unlikely playoff place

    Sarah Morgan: I bet Moldova could find a way to lose against Lichtenstein - never known such a defeatist, spineless team in all my life!

  11. Bale bounces up the charts

    Wales 4-0 Moldova

    Bale

    Two goals for Gareth Bale tonight takes his international tally to 24.

    A former Wales striker is pretty pleased.

  14. FULL-TIME

    Wales 4-0 Moldova

    Well, it could have been after the lord mayor's show.

    Instead the party just continued.

    Solid. Simple. Straightforward for Wales.

    Gareth Bale
  15. GOAL - Wales 4-0 Moldova

    Gareth Bale (pen)

    It was Gareth Bale what won it, tripped by Andrian Cascaval while going for a cross.

    And it's Gareth Bale what takes it - a stuttered run up and low to the left.

  16. PENALTY

    Wales 3-0 Moldova

    Penalty for Wales...

  17. Post update

    Wales 3-0 Moldova

    A great chance to pop the cherry on top as Gareth Bale breaks and feeds Andy King to his left - King edged offside though, apparently.

    Wales 3-0 Moldova

    There will be four added minutes in Cardiff.

  19. Post update

    Wales 3-0 Moldova

    Hal Robson-Kanu gets himself all the way to the by-line - the hard bit - but fails to cut it back for Gareth Bale - the easy bit.

    Bale's going to play the full 90 minutes, which is nice.

  20. Spain hit eight

    Spain 8-0 Liechtenstein

    David Silva makes it 8-0 to Spain in injury time with his second of the game.
