Wales and Portugal draw blank
 Women's Football Wales International News - 17 Nov 2018
Portugal 0 Wales 0
Wales continued their preparations for the Euro 2021 qualification campaign with a goalless draw against Portugal in their last game of 2018.
Manager Jayne Ludlow made one change from the side that lost to the Portuguese on Saturday, giving Ella Powell her first start for the senior side. Wales started on the back foot as Portugal piled on the attack from the first minute, with their closest chance forcing captain Sophie Ingle to make a goal line clearance in her 90th match for her country.
Following Ingle's clearance Wales settled into the game and cut out several Portuguese threats before they reached the final third. Unable to break through the Welsh defence, Portugal turned to shooting from distance and forced Laura O'Sullivan into a terrific diving safe towards the end of the first half.
Ludlow made several changes in the second half, introducing Rhiannon Roberts and Megan Wynne into the full back roles and an opportunity for Charlie Estcourt, returning from injury after last representing Wales against England in April. Wales became more direct in their attacks, with the Portuguese unable to deal with Wynne's pace and Angharad James, playing her 70th match, was unlucky not to see one of her through balls set up a clear opportunity as she fed through Helen Ward.
Despite the pressure increasing on Portugal, a rare opportunity for Francisco Neto's side saw a zipping free kick from out wide sail across the goalmouth and skim the crossbar, getting the crowd at the Municipial Stadium in Cova De Piedade.
Wales had to play the final few minutes with ten players after Kayleigh Green received a second booking and despite heavy pressure, Ludlow's side were unable to break through and find a winning goal.
Wales: Laura O'Sullivan, Ffion Morgan (sub Megan Wynne 45mins), Gemma Evans (sub Rhiannon Roberts 45mins), Sophie Ingle, Nadia Lawrence, Hayley Ladd, Angharad James, Elise Hughes (sub Charlie Estcourt 61mins), Ella Powell (sub Natasha Harding 30mins), Kayleigh Green, Helen Ward (sub Kylie Nolan 75mins). Subs not used: Claire Skinner, Olivia Clarke, Chloe Williams, Hannah Miles, Kelly Isaac, Cori Williams.
