Wales started their European Championship under-21 qualifiers with a convincing 3-1 victory over Bulgaria.

Cardiff City striker Tom O'Sullivan netted twice in the first 15 minutes and his club mate Josh Yorwerth added another with a close range header.

Bulgaria improved after the break and were rewarded with a low shot from Nikolai Kolev.
