BBC Sport archive: 1976 - Wales 1-1 Yugoslavia


Wales 1-1 Yugoslavia
1976 European Championship quarter-final second-leg
Date: 22 May, 1976

Welsh football's class of '76 are often referred to as the forgotten team as they are overlooked when remembering Wales teams who performed at the highest possible level because the quarter-final clash was not at a major finals.

Wales had lost the first leg 2-0 in Zagreb but Wales improved dramatically in one of the biggest days of Welsh football history as they held the Yugoslavs to a 1-1 draw at Ninian Park.

The visitors took the lead as Katalinski converted a penalty after Malcolm Page fouled Popivoda in the box but the crowd lifted Wales and Ian Evans equalised with his first Wales goal but it could not inspire what would have been a famous comeback.
