European U21 matches :- Wales v Denmark
Match Report

Wales (1) 1 Denmark (1) 2
Evans 15 Smith 2
  Alkhag 74

The Under 21 youngsters turned in a battling performance before going down to a goal 16 minutes from time. It took two great saves in the dying minutes from the Danish 'keeper to ensure his side hung on for a victory.

Wales fielded one of their youngest teams ever at this level, their squad decimated by injuries and suspensions after the 6-2 defeat against Italy on Friday.

The first goal came after just two minutes when Brondby striker Martin Smith lashed a 30 yarder into the roof of the net. Wales quickly hit back with a deserved equaliser on 15 minutes, when 18-year-old Kevin Evans unleashed a low shot that surprised keeper Nielsen, the ball going under his outstretched arm and into the back of the net.

Denmark grabbed the lead again with just 16 minutes left when substitute Iddi Alkhag cut in from the right and drilled a low shot past keeper Anthony Williams.
