Montenegro mount comeback to defeat Wales

Montenegro 3-1 Wales
All four goals were scored after the break as Montenegro came from behind to defeat Wales and move up to second in Group 3.

Montenegro came from behind to defeat Wales in UEFA European Under-21 qualifying Group 3, a victory which lifts them into second place in the section.

Thomas Bradshaw has given the visitors the lead ten minutes after the break but goals from Radivoje Golubović, substitute Stefan Mugoša and Stefan Nikolić ensured Montenegro claimed their second victory in qualifying.

After an uneventful first half, it was Wales who made the breakthrough on 55 minutes when Bradshaw beat the offside trap before finishing coolly past Pavle Velimirović. The hosts hit back ten minutes later, Golubović racing on to Asmir Kajević's through ball to level the scores from close range.

Bradshaw almost put Wales back in front but his effort came back off the crossbar before substitute Mugoša scored Montenegro's second goal on 76 minutes after beating defender Lee Lucas. Montenegro sealed the win two minutes from time when Marko Vešović found Nikolić who finished expertly past Christopher Maxwell. The two sides meet again in Wrexham on 8 October.
