Evening! This is a big night for the Welsh. Ben Woodburn's brilliant winner against Austria has left Wales on the coat-tails of the top two in the group, and with those two, Ireland and Serbia meeting tonight, Wales know they have the chance to gain some ground. A trip to Moldova isn't easy, but Wales should win, and more importantly, must win.

This is the Wales side for tonight's game, Hal Robson-Kanu is in from the start in the only change from the weekend's win over Austria.

This is the Moldovan side. I know none of these names.

In fact, I tell a lie. Wales have made two changes. As well as a start for the aforementioned Robson-Kanu, Joe Allen is also into the side for Dave Edwards.

The teams are in the tunnel, Wales are in yellow as hosts Moldova wear red as they march onto the pitch.

Anthem time, and the Welsh are up first, ably backed by plenty of very merry Welshman in the away end. I imagine they are fuelled by plenty of cheap Moldovan beer. The Moldovan anthem is a jolly affair with important trumpety bits, very meekly sung though I must admit. Kick off is moments away!

1' Moldova get the game underway!

4' It's been an uninspiring start to the game.

6' I don't think the ball has been in either penalty area yet.

8' Wales get a corner, it's whipped into the box by Ramsey and Robson-Kanu manages to get his head to it but can't generate much power on it as it bounces harmlessly wide.
