Republic of Ireland Women's Under-17s were held to a scoreless draw against Wales in the UEFA Women's Under-17 Championship Qualifying Round in Serbia. 

After the 14-0 win over Albania in the opening match and today's draw against Wales, Colin Bell's side are in a positive position going into their final match against Serbia.

Ireland had eight shots in the match compared to Wales' two, but were unable to beat Welsh goalkeeper Poppy Soper.

Speaking after the draw, Head Coach Colin Bell revealed he was happy with his side's performance.

"We dominated the match from start to end and were the much better team. We had a few chances that we just weren't able to take.

"The football that we played was very pleasing. The result was disappointing though because we were so dominant."

The team conclude their Qualifying Round against hosts Serbia on Sunday afternoon.

Republic of Ireland: Courtney Maguire; Therese Kinnevey, Mia Dodd, Ellie Ferguson, Shauna Brennan; Jessica Ziu, Orla Prendergast (Aoibheann Clancy 28), Eabha O'Mahony (capt); Emily Whelan, Emily Kraft (Lauren Egbuloniu 90+2), Rebecca Cooke (Katelyn Keogh 88).
