Wales made it two wins from two in their UEFA Women’s EURO Qualifying League B campaign with a 6-0 victory away to Kosovo.

Jess Fishlock marked her 150th appearance by captaining Wales, following Sophie Ingle’s announcement of her standing down after nine years in the role.

Ceri Holland forced an early save from Alma Demiri from a tight angle, Lily Woodham knocking the rebound out of play.

Rachel Rowe gave Wales the lead after half an hour, turning in a delivery from Fishlock, who also set up the second goal just before the break when her through ball was put away by Kayleigh Barton.

Rhian Wilkinson’s team took control with two more goals around the hour mark, Rowe with her second from the edge of the box after linking up with Angharad James, Rowe then turning provider for Ffion Morgan.

Elise Hughes added a late double to give Wales their biggest away win since 2006.
