INTERNATIONAL: George Thomas at the double for Wales in the Toulon Tournament

6 June 2017

George Thomas scored twice as Wales remained unbeaten with a last-gasp draw against the Ivory Coast in the Toulon Tournament.

The Sky Blues forward gave his side a seventh minute lead with a composed finish, before levelling the game deep into added time to earn Wales a share of the points.

It has been a positive start in France for the Welsh, after holding the host nation to an opening day draw, before defeating Bahrain after a late Daniel James winner from the penalty spot.

Their hopes of reaching the knockout stages now rest on other results, with Scotland facing Indonesia in a potentially pivotal fixture for the Dragons.

Head of Recruitment Tommy Widdrington has been in France taking a closer look at the progression of both Thomas and Cian Harries.

He said: "As part of Coventry City's recruitment process it's important we are aware of the emerging talent in the home countries, whether as transfer or loan targets.

"In the last 4 days I've seen 7 games involving players from all over the British isles (and as far as Cuba, Angola and Indonesia), which has given me an insight into the levels of the U20 internationals.

"Of course it's also very important that George and Cian know we are interested in and monitoring their progress too. Both have done themselves and our club proud and I hope they manage to progress to the knock out stages,"

He added: "I managed to have a chat with both of them following the 2-2 draw with the Ivory Coast and they were very upbeat, if a little surprised to see me."
