Wales boss Chris Coleman hailed the courage of his players after they came from behind to secure a 2-1 victory against Scotland in this evening's World Cup qualifier at Cardiff City Stadium.

James Morrison handed the visitors the lead just before the half-hour mark, but Gareth Bale equalised from the penalty spot in the 81st minute after it was deemed he had been fouled in the box by Shaun Maloney, and then rifled in a delightful winner with a minute of normal time remaining.

The result brought the Dragons' five-match losing streak since Coleman had been appointed as manager to an end as they bounced back from a 2-0 defeat to Belgium and humiliating 6-1 reverse in Serbia in their opening two Group A fixtures to kickstart their campaign. Reflecting on the performance, Coleman said: "This will give them confidence."
