Wales captain Simon Church was one of the goal scorers

Wales Under-21s earned an impressive five-goal victory over Luxembourg at Parc y Scarlets.

Neal Eardley's first U21 goal broke the deadlock to slot a 10th minute penalty after Joe Allen was fouled.

Two minutes later Eardley turned provider for John Brown before Andy King's header added a third and Simon Church made it four near the break.

Luxembourg pulled one back through substitute Ben Polidori before new James Wilson grabbed Wales' fifth.

Wales U21 manager Brian Flynn said: "We played better in Luxembourg last week and couldn't score.

"This time the shots went in and it was a good all-round performance.

"We have given seven players their debuts at this level in the two matches, and they have all gained a lot of experience.

"This all helps for their development and we have another good bunch of lads coming through."
