Wales Under-17 went down to a narrow 1-0 defeat to Belgium in the second match of their friendly double header.
After a Hannah Keryakoplis goal had given Wales a 1-0 win in the first match, the two teams met again on Thursday morning and once again, a fairly evenly matched first half meant that they were level at 0-0 at half time.
While Belgium posed more a threat from the end of the first half onwards, solid Welsh defending kept the scoreline goalless until Nicky Van Den Abbeele was able to head the ball home from a corner seven minutes from time, for the only goal of the game.
These friendlies against a challenging team will have been good preparation for the players and manager Jarmo Matikainen for the forthcoming UEFA Women's Under-17 Championship second qualifying round, in which Wales will face group hosts Switzerland, Scotland and France next month.
