BOSS Jayne Ludlow says Wales are definitely not settling for second place in their Euro 2021 qualifying group behind leaders Norway.

Ludlow’s women remain unbeaten in Group C after their 0-0 draw in Northern Ireland on Tuesday night, leaving them four points off the Norwegians.

But Norway, who Wales must play home and away, have won all four of their pool games to date, and they boast a hugely impressive goal difference of +31.

The runners-up in Group C are guaranteed at least a play-off spot and Ludlow is still hoping that could be the World Cup quarter-finalists.

“We won’t concede, definitely not, we are looking forward to the Norway games,” she told BBC Sport Wales.

“We have two Norway games. We look forward to the challenge come April and further into the New Year.

“We look forward to those games so we would not concede that (Wales are playing for second), not from our perspective, no.”

Despite missing the chance to close the gap on Norway to two points, Ludlow felt her side’s performance in Belfast was their best of the qualifying campaign so far.

“It was a great game of football for 90 minutes, it was the most interesting 0-0 draw I think I have ever been a part of,” she added.

“We created numerous chances and hopefully on another night we will take them. There are lots of positives.

"We defended really well, kept a clean sheet away from home and four games in we are unbeaten and we are pleased.

“We competed well, we dug in at times but, we also played some great football.”

She continued: “We look at that performance and say ‘we are progressing’.

“The result might not say that right now, but the level of performance was much better than we have produced in the last few months.

“The positive is we are creating the chances. I am really proud of them and it has been a really good campaign so far.”
