Wales Under-17 team had further success in their UEFA Under-17 Championship qualifying round group with a 4-0 win over Greece.
A strong performance against a physical Greek side, including a goal from Ellie Curson and hat-trick from Hannah Keryakoplis, who would also qualify to play for Greece, ensured a second win for Wales.
Wales' first two goals came in quick succession fifteen minutes in, when Chelsea Green put her left foot to good use with a fine cross in to Keryakoplis who headed the ball into the net, then followed up with another goal just a minute later.
Against the run of play, Greece's Christina Kollia got one back for Greece just after the half hour mark. Wales however continued to put the pressure on, and despite some good saves by goalkeeper Papakonstantinou, Ellie Curson managed a goal, in off the post, on the stroke of half time to give Wales a 3-0 half time lead.
The second half saw Wales continue to dominate and Keryakoplis rounded off her hat-trick, with an assist from Curson, to seal the 4-1 win for Wales.
Wales now play Russia on Friday at Sputnik Sport, Sochi, kick off 4pm local time as they bid to win a place in the Second Qualifying Round.
Wales Under-17: Katy Maddock, Rhian Cleverley, Katie Williams, Angharad James, Cherie Bessant, Danielle Oates (sub Lauren Hancock 27mins), Ellie Curson (sub Shanelle Edwards 70mins), Demi Edwards (sub Sadie Mansell 48mins), Hannah Keryakoplis, Hannah Lewis, Chelsea Green.
