Wales 0-1 Russia
European Championships 2004 play-off
Date: 19 November, 2003

Mark Hughes' team suffer one of the most heartbreaking nights in Welsh football as Wales lose to Russia in their Euro 2004 qualifying play-off.

Wales had held Russia to a goalless draw in their first-leg in Moscow and seemed favourites to end their major finals hoodoo and qualify for a championship for the first time since 1958.

But on their home turf, Wales were defeated by Vadim Evseev's first-half winner as the Russians were Welsh football's party-poopers at the Millennium Stadium.
