    Football Association of Wales chief executive Jonathan Ford has told BBC Wales Sport he is open to the prospect of further global experiences for Ryan Giggs' side.

    The Euro 2016 semi-finalists received financial incentives to take part in the China Cup, where they beat China and lost to Uruguay, and to play Real Madrid star Gareth Bale.

    "We had the opportunity to use our visit to help Wales and football in Wales to continue to prosper domestically and internationally," Ford said.

    "They are challenging trips; it is clearly a long way to go, so we don't want to necessarily do that every single year. But certainly opportunities like China - both for football and the wider Welsh interest - are something we would consider."

  17. FA 'confident' over women's Team GB side

    The Football Association are "confident" there will be a women's football side representing Team GB at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.

    The head of women's football, Baroness Sue Campbell, told BBC Sport the other home nations were "really supportive".

    However, BBC Sport understands the Scottish FA would be against having Scots in a GB team, but would not stand in the way of a squad of English women. The Irish FA refused to comment while the Welsh FA has yet to respond.

    Team GB reached the quarter-finals at London 2012 but did not enter a team for the Rio 2016 Games because the four home nation football associations could not reach an agreement.
