It is reasonably simple for Wales going into their showdown with qualification rivals Israel, win and their place will be confirmed for next year's Euro 2016.

This Wales squad would find themselves in the history books as the first Welsh side to reach a major competition in the last 58 years.

Wales will certainly be confident of the final win after a last gasp 82nd minute winner from Gareth Bale, against Cyprus, provides his nation with a grand opportunity inside the Cardiff City stadium on Sunday evening.

Israel will be in the mood for a battle however as they only sit two points away from second placed Belgium, while Thursday's 4-0 victory over Andorra will provide them with the required confidence and motivation.

Midfielder Joe Ledley has left the Wales squad with a hamstring injury with Nottingham Forrest's David Vaughan taking his spot.

Chris Coleman will want to tie up his teams place, to put themselves at ease over their future in the Euros, with a tough away trip to Bosnia and Herzegovina on the October 10.

A look into Wales' stats would make impressive reading from qualifying so far as they have racked up five clean sheets from their seven games with only two goals conceded within that time.

The man of the hour Bale has clearly been the difference on the attacking end with an involvement in eight of his countries nine goals, scoring six and assisting two.

The only other Welsh players to score in this qualifying campaign are David Cotterill, Hal Robson-Kanu and Arsenal's midfield ace Aaron Ramsey.

Israel's final game of the campaign will be an away game in Belgium with it most likely coming down to whomever wins that tie going on into Euro 2016 so Eli Guttman will be wanting his team to improve their chances with six points before then.

Can Wales get the win they so desperately want against Isreal? Have your say below!
