Wales secured safe passage through to the 1958 World Cup finals - still their only major championship finals - with a comfortable win over Israel.

Dave Bowen and Len Allchurch struck as Wales won the first-leg 2-0 in Tel-Aviv and another 2-0 win at Ninian Park earned the Welsh a place at the finals in Sweden.

Legendary striker Ivor Allchurch opened the scoring for Wales in the second-leg in Cardiff before winger Cliff Jones sealed glory with ten minutes remaining.
