Kayleigh keeps Wales on course
 Women's Football Wales International News - 8 Jun 2018
 
Wales 1 (Green 61)
Bosnia & Herzegovina 0

A goal just after the hour mark by Kayleigh Green gave Wales three important points in their World Cup qualifying group at the Liberty Stadium.
 
Wales were not really at their best against dogged opposition but once again found the answer whilst keeping yet another clean sheet.
 
The first half was a frustrating one for Wales who were not finding it easily to get behind a packed Bosnian defence and their best efforts came from long range by Rachel Rowe and Natasha Harding.
 
Their biggest opportunity so far came as Jessica Fishlock ran at the defence from deep and played in Green who elected to shoot and missed the target, whereas a return pass would have left the midfielder with a clear shot on goal.
 
Bosnia & Herzegovina had their own opportunities at the other end and on one occasion, Wales were grateful to the positioning of Sophie Ingle as she blocked Alisa Spahic's goalbound effort.
 
A driving run from Fishlock almost brought a breakthrough on the stroke of half time but she shot straight at Envera Hasanbegovic after making her way into the area.
 
Wales began to exert more pressure as the second half got underway and after forcing a series of corners, they were given a great chance to take the lead when Helen Ward was floored in the area by Selma Kapetanovic and a penalty was awarded.
 
Ward picked herself up to take the kick but Hasanbegovic parried her shot and the ball was scrambled away as Wales tried to force the rebound home.
 
Just six minutes later though, the breakthrough came as a half cleared corner was lobbed back into the area by Harding, Ward challenging a defender who could only head the ball into the path of Green who drilled home a first time shot from eight yards.
 
Wales pushed for a second but could not quite fashion a clear cut chance as Bosnia fought hard to keep themselves in the game.
 
The last few minutes were nervous ones as Bosnia piled forward in search of an equaliser and sent a number of crosses into the area, with Laura O'Sullivan punching clear on occasions whilst Ingle and Hayley Ladd dealt with the others. Wales saw the game out for a vital win which keeps them in the running for at least a play-off place and their next test will come on Tuesday night when they face Russia at the Newport Stadium.
