Wales 1 Poland 1
Wales drew for the second game in a row in their Cyprus Women's Cup campaign in Paralimni.
Wales opened the scoring with a Helen Ward goal in the first half but Poland were quick to respond as Ewa Pajor levelled the score on the 32nd minute.
Wales almost doubled their lead but Kayleigh Green's efforts were ruled out after being judged offside and two great Wales chances also went amiss as Kayleigh Green and Helen Ward's strike went wide of the post.
A free kick in the remaining minutes of the second half provided Wales with the hope to further their scoreline but Jessica Fishlock narrowly missed and the opportunity went begging as Wales take their second draw in the Cyprus Women's Cup.
Manager Jayne Ludlow commented on the draw, telling www.faw.org.uk: "Another good result today, we are unbeaten in competition so far.
"There are many positives to take from today's game including the amount of chances we created.
"Now the challenge for us is to keep performing in and out of possession and take our chances when they arrive.
"This competition is allowing us to give playing opportunities to all team members which is fantastic for our longer term development of the team.
"The team are becoming hard to beat and we are performing well and taking points from teams ranked above us.
"The players are totally focused on the next game in the competition v Czech Republic and performing well for the third game in a row. Individual and team performance have been excellent so far in the competition."
Jayne Ludlow's side face the Czech Republic in their final group stage match on Monday, again in Paralimni.
