Wales 4 Norway 1.

Summary: A quickfire late double from substitute Sam Vokes helped secure a strong victory for Wales over Norway in Cardiff.

A quickfire late double from substitute Sam Vokes helped secure three straight wins for Wales for the first time since 2008 with a strong victory over Norway in Cardiff.

The build-up to the match had centred on Gareth Bale and captain Aaron Ramsey's appearance in promotional images for a Team GB shirt.

The Football Association of Wales do not want their players involved in the Games but the Tottenham man highlighted why he is likely to be on Stuart Pearce's wishlist as his fierce volley broke the deadlock after just 11 minutes.

Craig Bellamy doubled the lead just five minutes later with a superb curling effort from the edge of the box, before Erik Huseklepp's fortuitous second-half tap in gave Norway hope.

Wolves' forward Vokes sealed the win with his brace in the dying minutes.
