. . . late equaliser sees Wales pick up point in Belgium


Swans duo Jazz Richards and Neil Taylor both played the full 90 minutes as Wales ended their World Cup qualifying campaign with a 1-1 in Belgium.
A 66th minute goal from Kevin De Bruyne had put the hosts - who had already qualified for the tournament in Brazil next year - ahead, but Aaron Ramsey struck an 88th minute equaliser to claim a share of the spoils.
Swans youngster Daniel Alfei was among the substitutes as Coleman's side ended the campaign fifth in Group A, with ten points from as many games in what was Craig Bellamy's final game for his country.
Meanwhile, Michel Vorm was an unused substitute as Holland won their group thanks to a 2-0 victory in Turkey, while Michu was also on the bench as world champions Spain beat Georgia 2-0 in Albacete to finish off winners of Group I.

At Under-21 level, Swans midfielder Lee Lucas scored a stunning 30-yard strike as Wales beat San Marino 4-0 in Bangor.
Skipper Lucas got the second while fellow Swan Scott Tancock claimed an assist in the third goal. Gwion Edwards - on loan at St Johnstone - came off the bench in the latter stages as Geraint Williams' side picked up a second win in five days in their Uefa U21s Championship qualifying group.
