Swans Trio Involved In Wales Under-21s Defeat

Swans Trio Involved In Wales Under-21s Defeat

Shaun MacDonald, Joe Allen and Neil Taylor all started for Wales under-21s as they lost 1-0 to Italy to miss out on qualification to the Euro Championships.

Brian Flynn's side topped the group by 3 points prior to their final game against 2nd placed Italy, but the 1-0 loss meant we came 2nd, despite having a better goal difference. The placings were determined by results and away games between the two teams.

Mattia Mustacchio's 14-minute strike was enough to put Italy through to the next stages while Wales were left frustrated not to get a great chance to equalise when Andy King's appeals for a penalty were ignored.

Italy U21: Mannone, Ariaudo, Ogbonna Obienza, Ranocchia, Bolzoni, Fabbrini, Marrone (Soriano 56), Mustacchio (D'Ambrosio 74), Schelotto, Marilungo, Okaka (Destro 78).

Subs Not Used: Perin, Angella, Pasquato, Borini.

Booked: Ariaudo, Marilungo.

Goals: Mustacchio 14.

Wales U21: Maxwell, Morris, Neil Taylor, Eardley, King, Matthews (Richards 34), Allen (Marc Williams 78), Bradley (Doble 56), Robson-Kanu, MacDonald, Church.

Subs Not Used: Cornell, Stephens, Partington, Jake Taylor.

Booked: Bradley, MacDonald.

Att: 6,891

Ref: Bas Nijhuis (Holland).
