International watch - Morrell scores again

Joe Morrell scored from the penalty spot for the second game running, as Wales Under-21s were held to a 1-1 draw with Georgia Under-21s.

City youngster Morrell was a second-half substitute for Rob Page's side at the Mikheil Meskhi Stadium on Wednesday night (June 6th), before he converted from 12 yards, with his 89th-minute penalty.

Morrell weaved beyond three players before he was taken down in the box and showed confidence when he struck the spot-kick to the Georgia keeper's right-hand side.

However, Wales' lead lasted only a matter of minutes as Giorgi Kokhreidze tapped in the equaliser to round off their second friendly in three days.

The sides drew 2-2 on Sunday, where Morrell scored a penalty on the half-hour mark.

Wales U21s are preparing for the second half of their 2019 European Championship qualification campaign, which resumes against Liechtenstein on September 7th.

Morrell was loaned out to League Two side Cheltenham Town for the 2017/18 season, where he made 39 appearances and netted three times.

Striker Gustav Engvall could also line up for Sweden Under-21s today (June 7th, kick-off 4.30pm), who take on Malta U21s in a European Championship qualifier.
