Wales boss Chris Coleman admitted his main feeling was relief after his team's 2-1 victory over Scotland in Friday night's World Cup qualifier at Cardiff City Stadium.

The pressure had been on the hosts going into the contest, with them bottom of Group A after being beaten 2-0 by Belgium and 6-1 by Serbia in their opening two fixtures of the campaign. That had extended Wales' losing streak since Coleman had been appointed as manager to five games, including the memorial match for his predecessor, the late Gary Speed, which was overseen by coach Osian Roberts.

With that sequence having finally been brought to an end, Coleman, whose side now face Croatia in Osijek on Tuesday, said: "Every time I win as a manager, I don't celebrate - I'm relieved. That is how we all think, any manager I talk to."
