Yarmolenko is penalised for handball inside the Wales box by Lahoz, who gets a first cheer of the match from the home crowd. An incredible last-ditch tackle from Davies stops Yarmolenko from having the chance to tap home from about eight yards. Incredible defending.
Wales break from their own box thanks to fine work from Williams, who gets it up the pitch to James, he dribbles inside and picks out Moore on the left, allowing him to cut it back for the onrushing Ramsey who finishes poorly to send the shot wide from 12 yards.
I feel Wales will just be keen to get to half time at this stage. Their best play currently is Hennessey which implies how the games is going. Referee Lahoz lambasts James for running into Karavaev and tells the two players to get up. Lahoz really is a dreadful ref to watch.
Yaremchuk plays a beautiful first time pass into Tsygankov’s path but Hennessey rushes out to snuff out the danger at the cost of a corner. Mykolenko goes into the book after putting an arm across James to stop the Welshman’s run. There are some claims of an elbow being involved but that would be a silly description.
Yarmolenko cushions the ball inside the box before lifting a cross into the six-yard area with the outside of his boot, only to see Ampadu head clear.
James wins another free-kick. Bale lines up the shot from 25 yards, he fires it across goal from the left and the ball is headed into the his own net by the Ukraine captain Yarmolenko.
