Chris Coleman is still looking for his first win as Wales boss
Chris Coleman's side have lost their first qualifying game for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil against Belgium.
Wales were reduced to ten men in the match after defender James Collins was sent off after just 26 minutes, for a lunge tackle on Guillame Gillet.
Manchester City's Vincent Kompany gave Belgium the lead before the break, heading home after a well worked corner.
Wales did come close to equalising, with Gareth Bale again acting as the main threat in the forward line, but a late free kick from Tottenham's Jan Vertonghen wrapped up the win for Belgium.
Chris Coleman was missing several first team players through injury, with Craig Bellamy, Joe Allen, Joe Ledley and Wayne Hennessey all unavailable for Wales' first qualifying game.
The loss means Chris Coleman is still without a win since taking over as Wales boss.
Speaking after the game, he said:
"I think one or two decisions went against us to say the least".
"I've looked back at the Collins incident a couple of times, and for me, it was never a red card".
"I'm much happier though after this game than I was after out last - the boys have shown fantastic commitment and gave it their all".
"Fair play to Belgium, they were the better side and deserved the three points - we always knew with our injuries that we would struggle to compete though".
Wales will be hoping to get a win under their belts when their campaign continues away to Serbia on Tuesday.
