Serbia played a 1-1 draw with Wales in Group D of the 2018 football World Cup European qualifiers at the Rajko Mitic Stadium.

Welsh midfielder Aaron Ramsey scored from the penalty spot in 35th minute, but Serbian forward Aleksandar Mitrovic equalised in the 73rd minute to ensure a share of the spoils.

Serbia are now at the helm of Group D on goal difference while Ireland are in second place with 12 points from six matches. Wales are third with eight points.

The quadrennial international football tournament will take place in June next year in Russia, with 31 teams that will need to go through the qualifications and Russia that will automatically qualify as the host.
