Sharp shooting England close in on Turkey
 Women's Football News 3 Apr 2012
 
England 6 (England 41,73, Parris 43,47,68, McCue 45) Wales 0
England put themselves on the verge of qualifying for the UEFA Under-19 Championship Finals in Turkey this summer after an awesome display of finishing at Sincil Bank. 
 
In truth, Wales did not play badly at all but were blown away by a three-goal blitz just before half time after the game had been evenly contested beforehand. Nikita Parris led the scoring with a clinical hat-trick in front of a watching Hope Powell.
 
Parris was quickly into the action with an early run into the area before her shot was saved by Katy Maddock. Wales were looking sharp going forward at this stage and their first opportunity came as Angharad James poked a shot from the edge of the area straight at Mary Earps, following good work down the left by Megan Wynne.
 
Danielle Carter forced Maddock into a save after a good turn outside the area and England were to go very close as Parris raced onto a long ball from Meaghan Sargeant and Maddock just got a hand to her attempted lob, the ball hitting the side netting. From the resulting corner, Jaz Matthews' kick was met by Sherry McCue whose header was hooked off the line by Lauren Price.
 
A counter attack from another corner gave Wales a great chance to take the lead just after the half hour. Ellie Curson, who had a very lively first half, latched onto a pass by Rachel Hignett and sped past a challenge from Alex Greenwood and evaded another tackle in the area before planting her shot just past the far post, however a pass would have left Shanelle Edwards with a tap in.
 
The game was shaping up to be a very tight one but suddenly England produced a stunning five minute spell. First of all Carter's persistence took her into the area where her cross picked out Beth England who planted a firm downward header into the corner of the net for the opening goal.
 
Two minutes later and England were two ahead. Kasia Lipka's shot from the edge of the area took a deflection and Maddock came from her line but failed to hold on the ball under pressure from Parris, who kept her cool to fire past the covering Wales defenders on the line.
 
Things got even better for England in injury time as Greenwood's long ball forward was cut out by Danielle Oates, but only as far as McCue who unleashed a spectacular 30-yard strike which soared past a helpless Maddock and into the top corner of the net for a goal to grace any international stage.
 
Any hopes of a Welsh fightback after the area were scuppered just two minutes after the restart as England went further ahead. Carter made a strong run into the area and, although she was halted by a good tackle from Oates, Parris was on hand to drill home the rebound from 15 yards.
 
England pressed for further goals against a shell shocked Wales side who found themselves hanging on to prevent further damage. A good passing move ended with Carter being denied by a good save from Maddock and substitute Keira Ramshaw was just off target with her first touch of the ball.
 
Wales were not helped by captain Price picking up an injury which hampered her and they fell further behind when Matthews played a good ball into the area for Parris to flick her shot over the oncoming Maddock to complete her hat-trick.
 
Five minutes later, England came up with another brilliant goal to round off their night. Parris was again heavily involved with a powerful run down the right and crossing for England to crash home a sweet far post volley for her second goal of the night.
 
To their credit, Wales did not give up and went close late on as Edwards was just wide with a strike from the edge of the area. At the other end, Maddock made a good save from Rebecca Anderson after she had been set up by Lizzie Ince but overall it had been an emphatic night for England.
