Absalom features in one of two warm ups for UEFA Elite Tournament.

  • Kelland Absalom involved in 1-1 draw v Czech Republic.
  • Wales Under 17s draw twice in build up to UEFA tournament.
  • Wales to face Austria, Russia and Iceland next month.

Latics' Youth Team goalkeeper Kelland Absalom made his fifth appearance for Wales' Under 17 team on Tuesday as they drew 1-1 in a behind closed doors friendly against Czech Republic at Dragon Park, Newport.

Wales faced Czech Republic again earlier today (Thursday), drawing 1-1 for the second time, but Absalom was an unused substitute as coach Geraint Williams made a number of changes to his team.

Absalom added to caps already earned against teams such as Russia, Belarus, Montenegro and Malta.

Wales will travel to Russia next month to take part in the U17 UEFA Elite Group matches against Austria, Rusisa and Iceland, with a place in the finals in Bulgaria up for grabs.
