UNDER 19: Elite Group 6 news, Wales miss out

Wales Under 19: photo linked from uefa.comUnder 19 
Results: Moldova 0 Wales 2. Norway 0 Serbia 3.

Serbia top the group and qualify ahead of Wales and Norway. All three nations finished the group on six points, but Serbia qualify for the finals by virtue of their results against the other two nations. Wales beat Moldova 2-0, goals from Joe Walsh and substitute Reece Jones earned Wales a win. "It has been a good week, we had a good opportunity to go to Romania but we did not make it. A 2-0 win in any international game at any level is a good result." - Brian Flynn.
