Wales make impressive start
 Women's Football Wales International News - 3 Mar 2017
 
Wales 2 Hungary 0
Wales got their Cyprus Cup campaign off to a perfect start with a 2-0 victory over Hungary at Tasos Marko Stadium Paralimni.
 
An opening goal from top Wales goalscorer Helen Ward and a second from Charlie Estcourt secured a great start to matchday one of the Cyprus Cup tournament.
 
The first goal came when Angharad James headed the ball upfield into the path of Kayleigh Green. Green took the shot at goal but the keeper managed to block without regaining possession, allowing Helen Ward to open the scoring on the rebound at 34 minutes.
 
In the second half, Charlie Estcourt extended the lead through Green's second assist of the night on the 66th minute.
 
Following the match, Ward commented: "It's always a good feeling to score for Wales and I think both the goals came at a good time in the game. We were in control but it's always good to use that pressure and get a goal at the end of it. The second especially killed them off. First game, first win and we're really pleased about."
 
Charlie Estcourt reflected on Wales' opening Cyprus Cup win and told FAW.Cymru: "We were 1-0 up at half time when I came on. We'd competed really well and we'd been on top of them for most of the half. It was great to come on and get that goal.
 
"The ball got put out wide to Kayleigh and I made it into the box and got on the end of a cross to make it 2-0.
 
"We controlled the game in the second half and we saw it out really well. We're all really pleased with the result. I think it's really good that us youngsters are coming on and playing well and showing that we can compete. It's great experience for us playing in tournaments like the Cyprus Women's Cup."
 
Ward is already looking forward to Wales' next fixture against Czech Republic on Friday 3rd March: "We're confident. The Czechs are going to be hurting after their 2-0 loss against the Republic of Ireland. They're going to want to come out and get points on the board against us.
 
"We've watched both teams. They both have good qualities and strong players but we've got nothing to fear. We've come out and played really well in our first game and we're sitting top of the group with Ireland now."
