Wales beaten by odd goal

Wales beaten by odd goal - 18 Feb 2008 - Women's Football NewsWales suffered a frustrating 1-0 defeat in their UEFA Championship qualifying group match with Belgium, despite enjoying much of the play.
In a tightly contested first half, Wales came close to breaking the deadlock from a Jessica Fishlock free kick but the ball did not fall kindly for an attacker. However at the other end it took a good smothering save from Nicola Davies to deny Janice Cayman as she made a threatening run on goal.
Wales stepped up their game after the interval and had claims for a penalty turned down when a Belgian defender appeared to handle a Cheryl Foster cross. The ball broke to Jayne Ludlow whose lob was narrowly off target.
In the 72nd minute, Aline Zeler's pass found Kristel Maes, who turned and lifted her shot over Davies to put Belgium into the lead.
Wales came agonisingly close to an equaliser in the dying minutes as Fishlock's cross was deflected inches past the post by a defender with Van Poucke beaten.
It was a tough result for Wales who had more than matched their opponents for much of the game, but they will have another opportunity to pick up their first points in the group on Wednesday when they host Holland at Newport.
Wales: Nicola Davies, Kath Morgan (sub Carla Parfitt 88mins), Natalie Holt, Nicola Cousins, Emma Jones, Michelle Green, Loren Dykes, Jayne Ludlow, Cheryl Foster, Jessica Fishlock, Gwennan Harries (sub Eleri Earnshaw 78mins). Subs not used: Jo Edwards, Kerrie Manley, Charlotte Miller, Sally Wade, Rhian Nokes.
