Wales and Republic of Ireland shared the spoils in a scrappy friendly match in Marbella that finished goalless.

Ireland's Katie McCabe had the best chance for her side, while Kayleigh Green was denied by a tremendous save from Marie Hourihan and Anghared James saw a shot cleared off the line.

Wales striker Helen Ward struck the post in the second half, while Amber Barrett was denied in a one-on-one.

Natasha Harding missed a late chance to win the match for Jayne Ludlow's side.

The two team teams meet again on Tuesday, 5 March.

Wales coach Jayne Ludlow told BBC Sport Wales:

"We are really pleased with how all the girls played. We are using this week for squad rotation and to allow the girls game time, so we are really pleased.

"We made six changes through the game, yet we created great chances.

"So overall we are really pleased with the performance.

"We need to take our chances when they come, but we created well today, the final decision just was not as good as we would have liked."
