Wales sinks France in quadruple-overtime to claim second spot in Pool B

Wales outlasted France in a quadruple-overtime thriller, 7-6, to claim the second spot in Pool B.

Dylan Braddock scored the game-winning goal. Both goalkeepers were outstanding in the game with Joseph Varela making eight saves for France and Casey Hughes making 11 saves for Wales.  

“We’ve been talking about it the whole buildup to this tournament and then throughout it that we’re a big group together, a big family,” said Paul Chapman, Wales defender. “We’ve got everybody’s back, no matter when we’re down, or building back up.”

“We just fought, kept each other going, powering through mistakes and believing in ourselves,” said Chapman.

The two teams traded goals in the dramatic final minute of regulation as well.  

Braddock finished with two goals as well as Ben Stringer.

A dramatic finish from Hong Kong, China in the next window of games against Mexico meant Wales finished as the fifth-best second-place team in Pool B through F, ultimately missing the playoffs.
