Aaron Ramsey’s deft penalty helped a depleted Wales cling on to draw against Serbia in their World Cup qualifying clash in Belgrade on Sunday.
Caerphilly-born Ramsey, 26, scored a first-half penalty at the Stadion Rajko Miti? to put his side ahead, but bereft of stars Gareth Bale, Hal Robson-Kanu and Neil Taylor, Wales struggled to retain their lead against the Group D leaders, eventually relenting to a 73rd minute equaliser by Newcastle United striker Aleksandar Mitrovic.
A resilient performance was sparked by a moment of magic from Ramsey, who scored a panenka penalty at the same stadium it was first introduced to the world.
Named after Antonín Panenka, a former Czech midfielder, the skill involves deftly chipping the ball down the centre of the goal, instead of conventionally aiming for either corner. Panenka himself scored the decisive penalty in the shootout of the 1976 European Championship Final as Czechoslovakia defeated West Germany.
