Wales Under-17s finished off their Uefa European Championship debut on a high with a dominant 3-0 victory over group winners Poland, but it wasn't enough to avoid a first-round exit. 

A Gabriele Biancheri header and a brace inside two minutes for Swansea City's Iwan Morgan claimed Wales' first win at a major tournament in this age bracket, after defeats against hosts Hungary and the Republic of Ireland.

Jacob Cook - who won Swansea City's February Goal of the Month with a stunning goal from inside his own half against Peterborough - was the only Swan in the starting XI.

Kit Margetson, Sam Parker and Morgan were named on the bench at the BSC Stadium in Budapest.

Biancheri opened the scoring with 10 minutes to go, and Wales doubled their lead in the closing stages on the counter-attack with Morgan - who netted 28 goals across the 2022-23 season -  making no mistake in finding the bottom corner after dribbling 35 yards with the ball.

The lead was further increased in stoppage time as Morgan bagged his second in the 91st minute, this time finding the top corner with a thunderous strike from the edge of the box.

Swans keeper Margetson and midfielder Parker were unused substitutes.

The final fixture concluded Wales' campaign and everyone at Swansea City congratulates Morgan, Cook, Margetson and Parker on their involvement in an historic campaign for the young Dragons.
