    SO, WHAT NEXT?

    The last-16 for Wales will be against the second placed side from Group B.

    That will be the first knockout game on Saturday in Amsterdam.

    Wales will play either Belgium, Finland, Denmark or Russia.

    It is unlikely that it will be the Belgians however.

    Here's how their group stands at the minute.

    Finland play Belgium tomorrow as Russia and Denmark face off.

    RAM BUZZ

    Aaron Ramsey chuckled when talking about the difficulty tonight.

    But he echoed his captain's words with praise for his side.

    Yeah it was tough for long periods! We played a top team.
    But again we showed great character, we gave everything and dug in.
    We finished off the job. It was important for us to stay compact and we could’ve pinched a draw.
    We have a good balance, first half we showed glimpses and kept the ball well but we need to be more consistent.

    BALE REACTS

    The Wales skipper was thrilled to get through and get through a difficult 90 minutes in Rome.

    We knew it’d be a difficult game. There was a lot of defending and a lot of tired bodies out there.
    We wanted a result but we would have probably finished second anyway.
    It was unfortunate to go to 10 men and we had to dig deep.
    We have a bit of a break now so we’ll rest up to get going again.

    HOW IT FINISHES

    The final Group A table.

    It ended nervy but an immense effort from Wales to keep the score at 1-0 playing so long with 10 men.

    HAVE YOUR SAY

    FULL-TIME IN BAKU TOO

    And Wales are into the knockout stages in second place!!

    The Italian players celebrate in the centre circle and the Wales players look gutted.

      75' It's who you would want it to fall to!!
