Wales Under-17 were beaten in both matches as they played a double header of friendlies against Hungary at Penydarren Park in Merthyr.
In the first meeting on Tuesday, Hungary opened the scoring through Fanni Vachter minutes after a promising Wales free kick from Anna Morphet. Hungary extended their advantage with a string of goals from Dóra Dorner providing a 3-0 lead within the first quarter.
Wales were quick to respond with opportunities from Emily Jones, Bronwen Thomas and Elise Hughes but were unable to convert their efforts onto the scoresheet.
Hungary opened the second half with another goal before Wales' Cassia Pike fought back with a consolation goal. Denied chances from Emily Jones and Anna Morphet proved a little too late as Wales succumbed to a 4-1 loss.
The second of the two international friendly matches was played on Thursday, with the game ending in a 2-1 defeat for Wales.
Wales made an encouraging start to the first half with attacking opportunities from Anna Morphet, Bronwen Thomas and Ella Powell before Morphet fired a direct shot from the corner to put Wales ahead.
After another period of Welsh pressure, Morphet stepped up to take a free kick but Erin Riden headed the ball wide of the post before the referee blew for half time.
In the second half, Wales started strong with two efforts at goal from Cassia Pike and Ffion Morgan before Hungary upped the pace.
Hungarian chances came from Wales mistakes leading to a goal from Luca Papp to bring the score level, before Vanessza Nagy added a second. Wales fought back in the final minutes in an effort to equalise as Morgan took the ball upfield before crossing it into Pike but the ball was intercepted.
