    Background: At the Barnabeu Stadium in Madrid, May 18, Wales lost their chances in the World Soccer Cup, when they drew 1-1 against Spain after an earlier 2-1 defeat at Cardiff. Spain are now meeting Ghana or Morocco for a place in Chile next summer.

    Although Spain were technically the masters, Wales held their own during the first half. With no score at half time there was still all to play for.

    But by degree Del Sol, Di Stefano and Gento began to pin Wales back. Peiro scored after 55 minutes, and for a quarter of an hour Wales were besieged.

    Peiro's goal began with a black-heel from Dal Sol to Gento. A deep centre to the far post caught the defense off guard and Peiro shot home low.

    In the next few minutes Kelsey drew roars of applause from the crowds as he saved from Peiro, Gento, Di Stefano, and Gento again.

    Just as the storm was at its thickest, All church slipped away on the left and best Ramallets with a perfect low shot inside the far post.

    Then came the moment that might have spelt victory for Wales. All church once more sneaked past right-back Foncho on the outside. The ball raced ahead but, right on the line, he hooked it across the face of the goalpost and behind Ramallets. It hovered tantalisingly on the goal-line when Calleja sliced it clear.

    Four minutes later Graham Williams raced clear but shot wide. From then on Spain regained control, and there was only Kelsey to prevent a shattering defeat.

    TEAMS: SPAIN: Ramallets; Foncho, Calleja; Zoco, Santamaria, Gensana; Aguirre, Del Sol, Di Stefano, Piero, Gento.

    WALES: Kelsey (Arsenal); Williams, S, (West Bromwich) Hopkins (Spurs); Charles (Arsenal), Nurse (Swansea), Crowe (Aston Villa); Jone (Spurs), Moore (Cardiff), Leak (Leicester), Allchurch (Newcastle), Williams, G. (Swansea).
