Wales keep hopes alive

Wales Women keep their UEFA Women's EURO 2017 qualification hopes alive with a 4-0 victory against Kazakhstan, their second win of the tournament so far. 
Two goals from Kayleigh Green and two penalties from Helen Ward provided Wales with the well needed three points.
Wales made a strong start with three great opportunities before a cross from Natasha Harding was met by Kayleigh Green who fired the ball into the back of the net as Wales opened the scoring at Skymkent.
After a promising run of chances from Nadia Lawrence, Harding and Ward, Wales were given the opportunity to extend their lead. Jessica Fishlock took the ball up field as Ward fired a superb ball into the box. Green collected and effortlessly slotted the ball into the back of the net to extend Wales' lead.
A steal from Fishlock in the second half provided another opportunity for Wales to secure the win. Ward received the long range cross and took the shot at goal but failed to find the net.
Kazakhstan's hopes of getting a point on the scoresheet were diminished when Begaim Kirgizbaeva brought Green down in the area, resulting in a red card. Ward took to the penalty spot and fired home Wales' third.
The Kazakhstan defence held strong, blocking further efforts from both Ward and Roberts. But Kazakhstan felt the pressure after Green was again fouled in the box by Kazakhstan goal keeper Shoikini resulting in another penalty shot. Helen Ward took the shot and secured Wales win.
Jayne Ludlow's side take the three points and now have a total of seven in Group 8, five points behind Austria and Norway. Austria and Norway are top of the table with 12 points. Israel are fourth with two points and Kazakhstan remain at the bottom of the table with only one point. Wales will look to make the five point difference in the three remaining fixtures against Norway, Israel and Austria at home.
Wales face Norway on 7th June in the next UEFA Women's EURO 2017 qualifier.
