SWANSEA City youngster Lee Lucas skippered Wales Under-21s as they eased past Iceland 3-0 in a friendly at Stebonheath Park, Llanelli, yesterday.

Geraint Williams's team also included debutant Scott Tancock, another product of the Swansea youth system.

Tancock was part of a defence who kept a clean sheet as the Icelanders were beaten 3-0 thanks to three late goals.

Crystal Palace starlet Jonathan Williams struck the woodwork early on, while at the other end Danny Ward kept out Emil Atlason's effort.

Bristol City striker Wes Burns, another Welsh debutant, eventually opened the scoring 12 minutes from the end when he lifted a shot over the Iceland goalkeeper.

The highly-rated Williams doubled Wales's lead two minutes later as his smart run into the box ended with him shooting high into the net, before Ogleby tapped in the third.

This was the side's first success under Williams, who included seven new caps ahead of the forthcoming 2015 European Championship qualifiers.
