Gareth Bale has not given up hope of Wales qualifying for the World Cup in 2018, after they recorded a 1-1 draw against Serbia at home.
Coleman’s men were not up to par throughout the encounter, but Bale’s strike in the first half seemed to be enough to hand them all three points. However, Mitrovic headed in the equaliser with just five minutes left, setting them back by four points from leaders Republic of Ireland.
Bale, though, still believes his side can progress to the finals from this difficult position having reached the last four at Euro 2016.
“We are so disappointed at the moment, we played great in the first half but then we faded,” he told Sky Sports. “We dug in. It’s one of those things, you go so close at one end [as Bale hit the post] and then they go up and score.
“We believe we can still do it, we just need to keep working hard. At home we were confident, we were 1-0 up in the 85th minute, it’s two points lost.”
