Nia Jones savoured the moment she marked her first appearance for Wales with a goal and is setting her sights on winning more caps.
The 18-year-old scored the final goal in Wales' crushing 8-1 victory over Bulgaria at Cefn Druids and she told Women's Soccer Scene afterwards: "The main highlight was that we won as a team but it was extra nice to get a goal on my senior debut. I'll be pushing all the way now and hopefully there'll be many more caps to come.
"I came on for the last ten minutes and played left back, where I've never played before. I came up for the last corner and just shot where I could, fortunately it hit the back of the net and I finished with a roly-poly which was good!"
Nia also praised her team mates and new manager Jarmo Matikainen for the display which resulted in one of their biggest ever victories. "All of the girls were really up for it and wanted to give a good start to the new boss Jarmo and we managed to get a good result out of it," she said.
"He [Jarmo] has come in with some fresh ideas and we're just getting down to the basics, we want to play football and not the long ball. We watched a few DVDs of the Bulgarians and looked at their weaknesses and thankfully that paid off today."
