Wales U21s 1-2 Denmark U21s: Cian Ashford goal in vain as visitors leapfrog Wales into top spot

Rubin Colwill of Wales is tackled by David Kruse of Denmark

Denmark replaced Wales at the top of Group I after edging their Euro 2025 Under-21 Championship qualifier at Rodney Parade in Newport.

The visitors led early when Tobias Bech fired low past Ed Beach, before Luke Harris, Charlie Savage and Joe Taylor went close for Wales.

Oliver Nielsen headed in a late corner to double the lead after the break.

Cian Ashford poked home a last-gasp consolation after Filip Jorgensen parried Rubin Colwill’s free-kick.

Denmark now lead the group on goal difference but have played a game less than Wales, with both on eight points.

Iceland, who Wales beat 1-0 last Thursday in Newport, are third on six points but have two games in hand on Matthew Jones’ side.
