WALES Under-23s lost their final game in the International Challenge Trophy 5-0 as they were totally outclassed at Port Talbot's GenQuip Stadium.

Facing a team drawn from the visitors' Super Lig, the Welsh did well to go into the break just one goal down after creating a couple of half chances.

But the Turks took the lead on the stroke of half time through Galatasary's Sercan Yildirim, who added another seven minutes later.

Cenk Tosun of Gaziantepspor scored just past the hour mark, and two further goals from substitute Sefa Yilmaz, who plies his trade with Kayserispor, ended a miserable night for the Welsh.

Wales: Lee Idzi [Bangor], Mike Pearson [Barrow], Curtis McDonald [Brackley] (Jack Lewis 69), Lee Evans [Newport], Andrew Hughes [Newport] (Shane Sutton 62'), Kai Edwards [TNS], Chris Jones [TNS], Aeron Edwards [TNS] (Ashley Evans 75'), Luke Bowen [Llanelli] (David Brooks 75'), Alex Darlington [TNS] (Jordan Follows 62'), Ben Swallow [Newport].
Subs not used: Steve Cann, Scott Barrow.
