Llandeilo’s Ffion Morgan was one controversial decision away from scoring one of the most important goals in the history of Wales Women’s National Football Team.

Wales beat Bosnia and Herzegovina 1-0 after extra time last night, as Gemma Grainger’s side pursue their goal of reaching their first Women’s World Cup.

Jess Fishlock scored the decisive goal in stoppage time of the first half of extra time, volleying the ball beautifully over the head of Almina Hodžić.

However, Wales were unlucky not to win the game in 90 minutes.


Kayleigh Green had two goals chalked off for offside, along with another from Fishlock, but it was Morgan’s disallowed goal which was seen as the most controversial moment of the game.

Rachel Rowe crossed the ball in, which was headed on by Bosnia defender Marija Milinkovic, and it landed at Morgan who brilliantly volleyed home, only four minutes after being substituted on for Carrie Jones.

However, the referee’s assistant put her flag up, and VAR subsequently checked and disallowed the goal due to interference from Wales defender Gemma Evans, despite not touching the ball.



Next up for Wales, as they continue their hunt for a World Cup spot, is a trip to Zurich to face Switzerland on the evening of Tuesday, October 11.

Wales’ captain Sophie Ingle praised the record crowd of 15,200 at the end of the match.

She said: "When I started only a couple of hundred of people came to watch, so it's unbelievable we've got to this stage. I'm so proud of the girls.

“We showed resilience, we made it hard for ourselves and kept the fans on the edge of their seats but we got the job done.”
