Edinson Cavani scores the only goal of the game as Uruguay go on to lift the China Cup following their 0-1 win over Wales.

Ryan Giggs’ side convincingly beat China in their opening China Cup fixture 6-0, with Gareth Bale breaking Wales’ all time scoring record after his impressive hat-trick in the game.

Wales faced a tougher test in the China Cup final against a strong Uruguay side – with Barcelona’s Luis Suarez and Paris Saint-Germain’s Edinson Cavani included in their squad – with Cavani scoring the only goal of the final.

Wales’ next fixture will be an international friendly against Mexico in Pasadena, California on the 28th of May before their Nations League campaign in September.
