The Under 21s  put-up a hard fight before being defeated 1-0 in a UEFA Under 21 Championship match in Grenoble this evening (Friday). The Wales team held a talented French side to 0-0 at half time, before a 50th minute own goal by defender Neal Eardley put them behind. The full back deflected a cross from the right past his own goalie from eight yards. Despite sending-on another attacker in Sam Vokes, the Wales youngsters were unable to get an equaliser.
