  • WALES LEAD! From the corner, the ball is recycled in the Belarus area, and Davies volleys a powerful strike into the ground, which Chernik can only palm into the path of Ramsey. The Juventus midfielder then steers home the game's opening goal. Wales 1-0 Belarus already!

  • WALES GO TWO UP! As the Belarus back four find themselves drawn to Bale, the Real Madrid man flicks the ball into Williams in space on the left side of the area, and his shot towards the near post squirms past Chernik. That should have been kept out really, but Wales won't care! The hosts are now 2-0 ahead!

  • WALES HAVE A THIRD! Coolly as ever, Ramsey slots his penalty low to the right - sending the goalkeeper the wrong way. That's his 20th goal for his nation! Surely that's game over now, as Wales lead 3-0.

  • THAT'S FOUR! Shortly after taking the armband from Ramsey, stand-in skipper Davies heads in his first-ever Wales goal from a Wilson cross, to cap a clinical display by the home side. Wales 4-0 Belarus!

  • GREAT STRIKE! Allowed to dribble freely down the left, Kontsevoy cuts inside and hammers an unstoppable 20-yard effort inside Ward's left-hand post. A fantastic consolation goal for Belarus, but he really should have been closed down quicker by the Welsh defence. It is now 4-1 to Wales!

  • FIVE FOR WALES! In the latest of his surging runs into the box, Connor Roberts gets a feathered touch onto a cross and diverts the ball into the top corner. Finally, some reward for an energetic showing. Wales 5-1 Belarus!
