Bosnia-Herzegovina goalie Asmir Begovic fumbled an easy shot from Radja Nainggolan on Monday to allow Belgium to escape with a 1-1 away draw that keeps it in a strong position in Group B of European Championship qualifying.

Wales consolidated the lead in the group by beating Cyprus 2-1 to sit one point ahead of Israel, which swept past Andorra 4-1.

Wales, led by Gareth Bale and trying to qualify for its first major championship, has 7 points from 3 games with Israel on 6 and Belgium on 4 points from 2 games.

In the battle between the only two World Cup finalists in the group, Bosnia took the lead in the 28th minute through captain Edin Dzeko before Belgium got the equalizer in the 51st.
