Gareth Bale snapped a dressing room photo with Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey and his other Wales team-mates after their historic Euro 2016 qualification.

The Welshmen needed a point from their clash against Bosnia-Herzegovina to qualify for next summer’s tournament, but Chris Coleman’s side suffered a 2-0 loss.

However, in spite of the defeat, Wales reached Euro 2016 after Cyprus were surprise 2-1 winners against third-placed Israel, prompting wild celebrations from the Welsh.

Real Madrid winger Bale, who has cored seven goals for Wales in their qualifying campaign, posted a photo of his triumphant Weslh team-mates on his Instagram page.

Ramsey, who helped Arsenal ease to a 3-0 win against Manchester United in their most recent Premier League fixture, posted a message on Twitter following their historic night.

The Red Dragon have qualified for their first major tournament since 1958.
