Wales Under-19 beat Slovenia 4-1 to book their place in the Elite Qualifying Round of the UEFA Under-19 Championships.
Manager Jarmo Matikainen had joined the squad after overseeing the senior team game with the Republic of Ireland at Newport on Saturday. In his absence, assistant, Colin Staples had seen the team beat Kazakhstan by 3-0 in the opening group match.
Goal machine Hannah Keryakopolis was restored to the starting line up and produced two goals, one in each half. Added to that came strikes from Ellie Curson and Sophie Davies to give the Welsh a comfortable 4-1 win in Sandgeroi, Iceland.
With Iceland also beating Kazakhstan by 3-0 in the other match, it leaves a top two showdown between Wales and Iceland in the final game whilst the other two sides are without a point. This means that whatever happens in the final game, both the hosts and Wales will go forward to the Elite Round of qualifiers in the Spring of 2012.
Wales Under-19: Katy Maddock, Sophie Davies, Sophie Cole (sub Alex George 82mins), Lauren Price, Danielle Oates, Angharad James, Ellis Parsons (sub Amy Thrupp 82mins), Hayley Ladd, Hannah Keryakoplis, Ellie Curson, Megan Wynne (sub Rachel Hignett 60mins). Subs not used: Alice Evans, Shanelle Edwards, Jordan Guard, Rebekah Hadley.
