Was dominant in the air when it came to claiming crosses and dealing with set pieces. Dealt well with all Macedonia threw at the Wales backline.
Looked assured at the heart of the defence and enjoyed the battle with Pandev, who displayed clever movement throughout. Made one telling intervention from a low cross.
Performed like a leader upon his return to the national side, forming a solid unit with Gunter and winning a number of headers when the visitors went long.
Like his fellow full-back, always looked to get at the Macedonian defence down his flank but showed good awareness defensively at the same time.
Was unlucky to be denied a penalty on two occasions and caused the Macedonian defence numerous problems. His final ball was the only slight on an otherwise impressive outing.
The worst performer in the Wales side. Couldn't get into the game and did not stand up when his side needed another body in midfield but was unlucky to strike the crossbar early in the second period after a mazy run.
Clever on the ball and provided an engine alongside the talented Ramsey in midfield. Got forward well and wasn't scared to help out his defence.
An excellent display with the debutant, who got forward regularly and delivered some teasing crosses which Macedonia often failed to deal with. Showed an abundance of confidence in a mature performance.
The captain transferred his club form to the international stage, showing a vast array of passes in a display where he was instrumental in everything good about his side. His through-ball for Church's strike was exquisite but missed from the spot after winning a penalty for his side.
Tireless performance up front from the Charlton striker. Was unlucky to see a header go wide and a shot deflect onto the roof of the net as he constantly proved a nuisance to the away side's defence. Deserved his second-half goal.
Dazzling display on his last-ever appearance for his country at home. Took the game to the visitors. Always looked to get behind the last line of defence. Unselfishly teed up Church for the goal.
Was called upon on numerous occasions to bail out his side but produced a string of clever stops to help keep Wales at bay but could do nothing to prevent Church from opening the scoring.
Looked nervous at times as he failed to deal with Hal Robson-Kanu's threat down the right but played his part in a resolute rearguard unit for the large part.
Made a series of interceptions when his side were under the cosh but the defensive stalwart stood firm under Welsh pressure until Church intervened.
Solid if not spectacular, the defender looked inspired by those around him to keep the hosts out early on but also got forward more as the game went on.
Was utilised to stifle Wales' midfield play and was quietly efficient at his job, nipping in and winning back possession for his side.
Hardly in the game and looked badly out of his depth at times as he failed to offer the sort of width needed to penetrate the Welsh defence.
Largely disappointing as he gave the ball away too cheaply, particularly from his set-plays, which were dealt with, with ease. Hauled off midway through the second half.
The skipper was a constant menace in his movement but did not offer enough in and around the penalty area and became isolated when Wales got on top. Will have been annoyed to have missed one of his side's best chances.
The most composed of all the Macedonian strikers. Got shots off, drifted past players and took up some clever positions.
Went out wide to try and test any nerves debutant John might be having, but it was the Welshman who won the battle, pegging the right-winger back as he failed to pose enough questions on the wing.
