Women's U17 Live: Norway v Wales

These are exciting times for women's football in Wales, and while the progress made by Jayne Ludlow's senior side has been more than apparent, attentions now turn to the next generation as the Under-17 side head to Bosnia and Herzegovina to compete in the UEFA Elite round qualifiers.

Wales qualified through the opening qualifying round for the first time in their history last October, and will now take on Norway, Denmark and host nation Bosnia and Herzegovina in what is expected to be a very testing week of football for the talented young side.

Wales qualified behind group winners Germany thanks to an opening day win over Turkey and a draw against hosts Latvia. Alice Griffiths, Ffion Morgan and Grace Horrell scored Wales' qualification goals, and all three players have been included in the final squad.

Last month Wales played two friendlies against Hungary in Merthyr ahead of the tournament, and despite a 4-1 defeat in the first game, a 2-1 reverse in the second match should plenty of defensive improvement and the side will take positives from scoring in both games and learning from their mistakes in the opening match.
