  1. Diolch a hwyl fawr

    FT: Wales 1-0 Bulgaria

    So that's all from us after a fourth victory in succession from Wales, who really are making a habit of securing late wins.

    It was a big, big day for Neco Williams and a great ending to a drab contest.

    Wales are back in action in October with a triple-header of away visits as they travel to Wembley for a friendly with England on 8 October before Nations League games in the Republic of Ireland on 11 October and a visit to Bulgaria on 14 October.

    So not long until your next international football fix.

    Until then, be well and thank you for joining us.

  2. Not vintage, but a deserved win

    FT: Wales 1-0 Bulgaria

    Wales manager Ryan Giggs told Sky Sports: "We kept going which was the main thing, it wasn't easy.

    "We've played two teams into their season and far fitter than us.

    "It was our best move of the match that got us the goal, Neco was brilliant when he came on the other night and it was the same today.

    "He's got loads of quality, confidence in his ability and he has brought new energy to the group.

    "He has showed that in both his cameos in the games, I was debating starting him today and I am delighted for him.

    "It was a poor performance first half, we stepped up second half. It wasn't vintage, but in the end we got what we deserved I think."

  3. Proud moment for Williams and family

    FT: Wales 1-0 Bulgaria

    Wales goalscorer Neco Williams told Sky Sports: "To finish off the game like that and get my first goal for my country is a proud moment for me and my family.

    "It's all happened so quick, when you are a kid you dream of playing for your country so to get the opportunity is surreal.

    "If I keep working hard hopefully I will keep getting chances and like today get more goals.

    "Being part of this team is like a family, everyone is really close and help young lads, and the talent we have is unbelievable.

    "For the younger players to get the opportunity is a great feeling, we all have to thank Ryan Giggs for that."

  4. Bale happy with win and 90 minutes

    FT: Wales 1-0 Bulgaria

    Gareth Bale

    Wales captain Gareth Bale told Sky Sports: "Fantastic for Neco and fantastic for us.

    "We've been working towards keep going, keep going and being patient and the game wasn't easy.

    "Everyone's fitness levels are at different stages, but we fight to the end like we always do for this shirt and we got our reward today.

    "We are all going in the same direction.

    "We were not good enough in the first half, we had to pick it and we did that.

    “The last game (against Finland) I was struggling but the 45 minutes did me well so I was pleased to get through 90 today.”

  5. Post update

    FT: Wales 1-0 Bulgaria

    It was a really poor game, but the mark of a good team is finding a way to win against stubborn sides in poor quality contests.

    We mentioned before the game that this Wales team is improving all the time and the way they kept going until the end really underlines that.

    Neco Williams was a threat from the moment he came on and Connor Roberts certainly has a fight on his hands to remain Wales' first choice at right back.

    An exhilarating ending.

  6. Neco in the nick of time

    FT: Wales 1-0 Bulgaria

    Neco Williams in the nick of time.

    It just shows you how important concentration levels are.

    He didn't have arrive late, what a great finish, gliding it into the far corner.

    Let's not forget the brilliant ball from Jonny Williams though.

  7. FULL-TIME - Wales 1-0 Bulgaria

    Wales steal it at the end!

    A poor match has a very, very good ending for Wales who win it in the 94th minute.

    Four wins on the spin, Brooks and Robson-Kanu back, 90 minutes for Bale, happy days.

  8. Wales 1-0 Bulgaria

    Neco Williams

    What a moment for Wales!

    It's brilliant from Wales! Finally the breakthrough.

    A patient move is capped by a brilliant cross from Jonny Williams and Neco Williams raises highest at the back post to head home!

    Wales have won it at the death.

  9. CLOSE!

    Wales 0-0 Bulgaria

    Gareth Bale gets a glimpse of goal from 25-yards, but he can't keep the ball on target. He's annoyed with himself.

  10. Post update

    Wales 0-0 Bulgaria

    We will have five minutes of added on time. So still time...

  11. Post update

    Wales 0-0 Bulgaria

    Wales have one minute left plus added on time to find the goal that will keep their winning run going....

  12. Harsh for Neco

    Wales 0-0 Bulgaria

    Kevin Ratcliffe

    Former Wales captain on BBC Radio Wales

    That's not a booking! It's accidental, the Bulgarian player has really made a meal of that.

  13. Post update

    Wales 0-0 Bulgaria

    Bulgaria clear the danger well.

  14. Post update

    Wales 0-0 Bulgaria

    Lovely turn from Hal Robson-Kanu wins Wales a freekick and gives them the chance to load the box.


    Wales 0-0 Bulgaria

    Another first for Neco Williams. A first yellow card for a slightly late, but not malicious, foul.

    Have Bulgaria just brought on Olivier Giroud?!

    No, it's Dimitar Iliev. From this distance, he looks quite a bit like the Chelsea and France striker.

  17. Post update

    Wales 0-0 Bulgaria

    Birsent Karagaren heads wide with a difficult chance for the visitors.

  18. Post update

    Wales 0-0 Bulgaria

    Glad to see the back of Todor Nedelev.

    Everytime I heard Todor I thought of Hodor.

    Told the door eh?

    Apologies if you're not a Game of Thrones fan.


    Wales 0-0 Bulgaria

    Todor Nedelev is replaced by Filip Krastev who makes his Bulgarian debut.
