Superb Wales hold Germany
 Women's Football News 1 Apr 2011
Wales Under-19 recorded arguably the greatest result in their history when they held Germany to a 1-1 draw in their opening UEFA Under-19 Championship second qualifying round group match at Parc y Scarlets, Llanelli.
The Germans took an early lead from a corner on eights minutes, defender Luisa Wensing rising at the far post to score from a bullet-header.
It could have been the signal for an all-out onslaught by the Germans but instead, Jarmo Matikainen's young team fought for every ball and held the German attack at bay. Few chances came to either side for the rest of the opening 45 minutes, but Wales were beginning to grow in confidence as the half wore on. Captain Nia Jones was very impressive in keeping the shape of the Wales defence under severe pressure.
In the second half, Wales came out on a mission and denied Germany the time and space to build from midfield. Their reward came with just ten minutes to go when captain Nia Jones scored the all-important goal for the girls in red.
It was the signal for an all out attack from Germany but Wales held their ground and took the point from a famous 1-1 draw. In the other game, Turkey beat Iceland 3-1 in the early kick off at Parc y Scarlets.
The next games are on Saturday at 3pm when Wales play Iceland at Stebonheath Park, Llanelli and Germany meet Turkey at Richmond Park, Carmarthen. Both games are free admission.
Wales Under-19: Katy Maddock, Sophie Davies, Jasmin Dutton, Nia Jones, Lauren Price, Hayley Ladd, Megan Wynne (sub Zoe Atkins 86mins), Josie Green, Hannah Keryakoplis, Rachel Rowe (sub Angharad James 59mins), Ellis Parsons (sub Ellie Curson 90mins).
