The best jokes as Israel hold up Wales Euros qualification

Welsh presence at France 2016 still in the balance as Gareth Bale draws blank.

It’s the Wales Euros qualification that’s had us all on tenterhooks, but we’ll have to wait a little longer after yesterday’s 0-0 draw with Israel – in the meantime, enjoy these jokes.

Gareth Bale’s Chris Coleman’s men had been hoping to follow up their rise to 9th in the Fifa world rankings – one place above England – by qualifying for their first major tournament since 1958.

But a goal ruled out for offside and a penalty not given dictate that they now require a minimum of two points from their last two matches in Group B, against Bosnia and Herzegovina and Andorra.

In the absence of a confirmed Wales Euros qualification, take solace in the best jokes about yesterday’s game that Twitter had to offer…

I haven't seen Israel defend like that since the Yom Kippur War #WALvISR

@csmiller20 or get that lucky… Now Israel must be as good as the ninth best team in the world…

Good start. Ironically Israel aren't occupying any territory. #WALvISR

Please stop calling Wales a one-man team. I know Jazz Richards plays for Fulham, but there are 10 other guys out there too #WALvISR
