Wales 0 Switzerland 2
Wales went down to their third loss in a row as a goal in each half condemned them to a 2-0 defeat at the hands of Switzerland at Rhyl.
The first half was very evenly contested and Wales were unlucky to fall behind five minutes before half time, as a free kick struck by Rahel Graf from just inside her own half bounced over the head of Welsh goalkeeper Nicola Davies and into the net.
Wales tried to get back on level terms but were frustrated by a well organised Swiss defence and chances were few and far between. With eight minutes remaining, and the Welsh side committed to attack, Switzerland struck a killer blow as Martina Mosser beat two defenders before sliding the ball home for the second goal.
Switzerland were reduced to ten players in the dying minutes as Umea IK midfielder Ramona Bachmann was sent off for two bookable offences but there was too little time left for Wales to capitalise.
Wales: Nicola Davies, Kath Morgan, Natalie Holt, Nicola Cousins, Emma Jones, Katie Williams, Loren Dykes (sub Jo Edwards 80mins), Jayne Ludlow (sub Milly Durrant 83mins), Gwennan Harries, Cheryl Foster (sub Charlotte Miller 66mins), Jessica Fishlock. Subs not used: Terri Beddows, Lauren Townsend, Erin Vaughan, Rhian Nokes.
