WALES return to the STōK Cae Ras for their friendly meeting with Gibraltar this week and there have been so many memorable matches at the famous old ground.

It’s 146 years since the Welsh went down 2-0 to Scotland in the country’s first ever international match at The Racecourse and over the decades and tonight will be the 95th football international at the ground.

There's been so much drama on plenty of famous nights and here’s The Leader’s top 10 of Wales’ most memorable games in the town.

10: WALES 1 TRINIDAD AND TOBAGO 0 (March 20, 2019)

The last time an international contest was staged in the north.

Over 10,000 spectators were in attendance as Ben Woodburn's stoppage time goal settled the match in Wales' favour.

Two minutes into injury-time and a goalless stalemate looked imminent until Woodburn bundled the ball over the line with his chest from Will Vaulk’s lofted cross to the back post and sent the home supporters into raptures of delight.

9: WALES 0 SCOTLAND 2 (March 5, 1877)

From the last all the way back to the first!

This was Wales first ever international match on home soil and there was a crowd of 4,000 in attendance as Scotland followed up their 4-0 win at Glasgow the previous year with a 2-0 success.

8: WALES 3 SCOTLAND 1 (October 19, 1946)

Wales' first international after the Second World War was held at The Racecourse.

Scotland were the visitors in the British Home Championships and it was the hosts who came out on top in front of 29,568 spectators.

Bryn Jones, Trevor Ford and a Jimmy Stephen own goal saw Wales win their only match in that season's championship.

7: WALES 7 MALTA 0 (October 25, 1978)

As far as debuts go, this is up there with the very best!

Chester striker Ian Edwards made his full Wales bow in spectacular fashion.

Edwards, who would later move to Wrexham, scored four goals in the 7-0 thrashing of Malta in a Euro 1980 qualifying clash.

Also on the scoresheet in front of 11,475 fans that October night were Brian Flynn and Mickey Thomas, with Peter O'Sullivan bagging the other.

Unfortunately for the men in red, West Germany were also in their qualifying group and they would go on to win the tournament.

6: WALES 3 CZECHOSLOVAKIA 0 (March 30 1977)

The 70s was a decent decade for the Welsh team.

While they failed to qualify for the World Cup, they did qualify for the latter stages of one major international tournament... but more about that later!

Looking to qualify for the 1978 World Cup in Argentina, Wales were placed in the same group with European champions Czechoslovakia.

Less that six months after Antonin Panenka's cheeky penalty saw the Czechs stun West Germany in the final of Euro 1976, they were seen off by wonderful Wales 3-0 at The Racecourse.

Leighton James struck twice in front of a crowd of 18,000, with Nick Deacy bagging the other.

5: WALES 11 IRELAND 0 (March 3, 1888)

Wrexham are known for producing games with bags of goals - but the Racecourse has been providing goal-den matches for more than a century-and-a-quarter!

The ground witnessed Wales' biggest ever international triumph in front of a crowd of 4,000.

Star of the show was Jack Doughty with four goals on the day, while there were two goals apiece from Roger Doughty, Edmund Howell and Job Wilding.

William Pryce-Jones also got his name on the scoresheet, but there was no British Home Championship glory for Wales, with this match sandwiched between 5-1 losses to England and Scotland.

4: WALES 1 AUSTRIA 0 (November 19, 1975)

We all know Wales topped their group in the Euro 2016 finals.

However, when was the previous time Wales managed to top their pool?

That came in 1975 when they topped a group containing Hungary, Austria and Luxembourg to qualify for the quarter-finals of the European Championships.

Arfon Griffiths - Wrexham’s greatest-ever player - was the match-winner in a vital 1-0 win at home to Austria that sealed Wales' progress in front of 27,578 at The Racecourse.

3: WALES 1 ENGLAND 0 (May 2, 1984)

The British Home Championship had been a staple for fans for over a century, but 1984 would be the final year of the tournament.

It's fitting that Wales' penultimate home match in the competition was played at The Racecourse and almost 15,000 were there as a Ruabon lad marked his international debut in style.

Mark Hughes grabbed the only goal of the game 17 minutes in.

Hughes scored again in the following match against Northern Ireland to put Wales on the verge of the title, but Gerry Armstrong's equaliser would win the final championship.

2: WALES 3 SPAIN 0 (April 30, 1985)

This comes so close to being number one!

The talented Spanish team were runners-up to a Michel Platini-inspired France at Euro 84, but they were no match for Mike England's marauders here.

Yes, the result was stunning - but there's one goal that's still talked about nearly four decades on.

Mark Hughes netted a goal for the ages with his stunning scissor-kick volley from the edge of the box to send the 23,494 who were there into raptures.

Flint lad Ian Rush grabbed the other two in this World Cup qualifier.

1: WALES 4 ENGLAND 1 (May 17, 1980)

What a way to begin the decade!

Wales' first match of the 1980s was also Mike England’s first game in charge - and England put England to the sword in stunning fashion.

Cheered on by the majority of the 24,386 crowd, Mickey Thomas picked a great time and a great ground to score his first international goal.

Ian Walsh, Robbie James and a Phil Thompson own goal were further reasons to be cheerful during the never-to-be-forgotten match.

There would be no British Home Championship for Wales, though, with this win being followed by 1-0 losses to Scotland and Northern Ireland.
