Wales record comfortable victory

Wales Under-19 5 Estonia Under-19 0
Wales cruised to a straight forward win over Estonia in their friendly international in the Rhondda. 
The match on Tuesday evening was played in very warm sunshine on an early season pitch that caused a few problems with uneven bounce for the players.
A crowd of some 125 spectators at Ton Pentre saw Wales make a quick start and as early as the second minute, Georgia Evans of Bristol Academy went close with a free kick that skimmed the crossbar of the Estonians.
It was a taste of things to come as a minute later from a corner, captain Lauren Price headed home unmarked to give Wales the lead. The Estonians looked sluggish and were caught again after nine minutes when Georgia Evans turned well on the edge of the box to score inside the post through a ruck of players.
Those two quick goals certainly seemed to knock the stuffing out of the visitors, but to their credit, they began to claw their way back as the first half progressed, though goalmouth chances were few and far between.
Because of the heat, the sides were allowed a drinks break midway through the half, with Wales always looking the stronger with good midfield work from Anghatad James and up front, Hannah Keryakoplis - both senior internationals. At the back, Lauren Price marshalled her defence well and she linked with fellow central defender Mali Summers to keep out any threat.
For the start of the second half, Wales made one change with Catherine Walsh replacing Amy Wathan. English-born Estonian Manager, Keith Boanas made three changes after seven minutes of the second half, but with little difference as both sides paced themselves in the very warm conditions.
The game was finished in the 72nd and 73rd minutes as Wales struck twice more - firstly with a right wing cross being stabbed home by Angharad James, then substitute Catherine Walsh hooked in a shot from three yards out to make it 4-0.
Substitutions came thick and fast from both sides from then on as both coaches gave almost everyone in the squads a chance of a run out. The fifth goal for Wales came some eight minutes from time, when the impressive Hannah Keryakoplis beat three players before shooting home into the far corner of the net.
A comprehensive victory with a second match to come on Thursday evening at 6pm at Port Talbot Town's GenQuip Stadium. Once again, admission will be free. Wales Manager Jarmo Matikainen can be rightly proud of a very professional performance by his team who passed the ball well to feet and competed well in every department.
