China edge out Wales
 Women's Football News 10 Mar 2011
 
Wales were beaten 2-1 by China in their final Algarve Cup match but still finished in their highest spot to date in the competition.
 
After finishing on top of their group, Wales took on the two times Algarve Cup Champions in a play-off match for seventh place but found themselves a goal behind as You Jia put China in front in the third minute.
 
China continued to attack throughout the first half but a hard working Welsh defence held them to their one-goal lead until half time, clearing the ball off the line on a couple of occasions.
 
China added a second early in the second half but Wales hit back strongly, reducing the arrears shortly afterwards when a Gwennan Harriers kick into the area eluded the goalkeeper and Helen Lander was on hand to tuck the ball home.
 
Wales ploughed on with renewed confidence and were given a great chance in the dying minutes as they were awarded a penalty for a handball offence in the area. Captain Emma Jones stepped up, however her spot kick was saved by Zhang Yanru.
 
The match ended a highly satisfactory tournament for Wales who recorded two good victories to top their group before narrowly going down to highly ranked opposition.
