Romania U21 2-1 Wales U21

Ellis Harrison
Ellis Harrison missed a first half penalty that would have given Wales parity

Wales' hopes of reaching the UEFA European Under-21 Championship suffered a blow as they were defeated 2-1 in Romania.

Wales suffered their first defeat in group five, despite Jake Charles' late strike, with Bristol Rovers striker Ellis Harrison missing a first half penalty.

Romania took advantage, scoring through Robert Hodorogea and Alexandru Ionita.

Wales have 12 points from seven games and now trail Denmark and Romania.

The defeat in Romania follows last week's 0-0 draw in Bulgaria.

Geraint Williams' side were knocked off the top of Group 5 after the draw and Denmark's 1-0 win over Luxembourg.

Wales drew 1-1 with Romania in November.
