Evans helps send Wales top

Malta 0-4 Wales
Chedwyn Evans scored twice in Corradino as Wales won to move to the top of qualifying Group 10.

Chedwyn Evans scored twice as Wales won 4-0 in Malta to move to the top of 2009 UEFA European Under-21 Championship qualifying Group 10.

Second-half flourish
Having failed to break the home side's resistance in the first half, Wales finally struck in the 60th minute when Evans headed past Miguel Montfort in the Malta goal. After 79 minutes it was 2-0, Simon Church exploiting a defensive error to score from close range, and nine minutes later a Darcy Blake ball set up Jack Collison for Wales' third. Evans then completed the scoring from the penalty spot in added time following a foul by Clayton Failla.

Romania second
Wales have 12 points from five games, and lead a competitive section by a point from Romania and a France team who have played a game more.
