Having got to the semi-final of the European Championships this summer, it is safe to say the Welsh national team are pretty handy when it comes to all things on the football pitch.

But that isn't quite true.

While Gareth Bale, Joe Allen and Ashley Williams regularly tear it up during the game, it seems they could actually do with a little bit of practice when it comes to team photos.

Yes, it may seem like an easy task to execute but the 11 footballers that make up the world's 10th best nation just don't get it.

Playing in a crucial World Cup qualifier away to Austria on Thursday night but had to complete the mandatory photo before the game could kick-off. Obviously with other things on their mind, this is what they managed to pull together.

It's quite something, isn't it?

Chronic issue

To baffle you all further, this isn't an isolated incident, far from it, in fact. For some reason, the Dragons have a chequered past when it comes to team photos. Just take a look at some of their other terrible team photos down the years.

The game

With the grueling team photo out of the way, Wales didn't fair much better in the game. Allen gave them the lead with a sumptuous strike in the 22nd minute before his Stoke City team-mate Marko Arnautovic canceled it out six minutes later.

Kevin Wimmer's own goal gave Wales the lead again in first-half injury time but it took only three second-half minutes for Arnautovic to grab his second. The score would finish 2-2, leaving both teams on four points with two games played.
