Youngster scores the opener for the Under-21s.

Wes Burns scored on his debut for Wales Under-21s in their 3-0 victory over Iceland in Llanelli. 

The City striker was a second-half substitute and opened the scoring in the 78th minute. After latching on to a long ball the 18-year-old showed great composure as he chipped over the onrushing goalkeeper. 

The friendly was good preparation for the Welsh youngsters, with the UEFA Under-21 Championship qualifiers beginning next month.
