Burnley goalkeeper Hennessey: Wales win my best ever game

Burnley goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey says Wales' World Cup playoff win against Ukraine was the best performance of his career.

Hennessey pulled off nine crucial saves as Wales won 1-0.

The keeper said, "It's incredible.

"Everyone on the field tonight (Sunday night) was fantastic, even those who did not come in tonight. It's the best match I've had in a Welsh jersey, I'm totally up for running.

"Gareth (Bale) is so dangerous on a free kick, an incredible talent and a pleasure to watch. We are a small nation and it is great to take everyone to a World Cup."
