INTERNATIONAL: George Thomas and Cian Harries feature in Wales' Toulon opener

Wales start their campaign with a promising result against the host nation...

George Thomas and Cian Harries played the full 80 minutes as Wales began their Toulon tournament campaign with a promising 0-0 draw against host nation France.

Not overawed by the twelve times winners of the competition, the young Welsh side matched their opponents for the majority of the contest, with Nathan Broadhead and Manchester United defender Regan Poole going closest in the opening exchanges.

France pushed for a winner in the closing stages, but found Tranmere shot stopper Luke Pilling in fine form, as Rob Page's side secured an opening day point.

Both Thomas and Harries will now turn their attention to the next group again against Bahrain, who were beaten 1-0 against the Ivory Coast in Group B's earlier fixture.
