Wales fall to another defeat
Gary Speed’s miserable run as Wales’ boss continued as his side crashed to a 2-1 defeat against Australia at the Millennium Stadium.
Despite calling on star players like Craig Bellamy and Gareth Bale, Wales were totally outplayed by a lively Australian side, who eased into a 2-0 lead courtesy of Tim Cahill and Robbie Kruse.
Darcy Blake’s late consolation wasn’t enough for Wales, who slipped to their fourth defeat in five games.
There was better news for Northern Ireland though, whose Euro 2012 qualification dreams remain alive after a thumping 4-0 win over the Faroe Islands.
Celtic winger Paddy McCourt stole the show with two goals, including a sublime solo effort for number four, with Aaron Hughes and Steven Davis also getting on the score-sheet.
