Schools football: Rosie is Euro star for Wales
« on: November 07, 2007, 09:59:39 PM »
WELSH international goalkeeper Rosie Lamprey, 16, received the player of the match award and a standing ovation from the home crowd at the UEFA Under 17 Women's Championships.

The accolade came following the Pensby schoolgirl's performance against host country Switzerland in a 2-2 draw. But despite a 10-0 win over Cypress and a 2-2 draw with Lithuania, Wales failed to advance into the last 16.

Rosie also came on as replacement for the Under 19 team, for the last ten minutes, when they had already lost 7-0 to Germany. She retained her place for the 2-0 defeat of FYR Macedonia and the 3-2 loss to the Czech Republic. Again, the side failed to advance in the competition.
