A delighted Sarah Wiltshire reflected on her first international goal for Wales and insisted that her team were capable of reaching the play-offs for Euro 2013.
The 21-year-old winger scored once and created two other goals as she played a starring role in their 5-0 victory over Israel and she told Women's Soccer Scene after the game: "It was really important to get the win today because it puts us in a good position to play against Scotland.
"Israel were quite a good technical team and could pass it around if you let them but our plan was to press them high up the pitch and not let them do that.
"Tash [Harding] did well getting on the end of corners and got the first goal as well, to put us into a good lead. At half time we said we had to get more goals and we did, so it was a good team performance overall."
Sarah's goal came early in the second half and she revealed that a joke with team mate Hannah Keryakoplis had actually turned out to be fruitful for both players. "It was really special," she recalled. "I think it was Hannah who passed me the ball and I just hit it.
"I've hit the post quite a lot for Watford this season so I wouldn't have been surprised if it had come back out, but luckily it went in.
"I joked with Hannah before the game that if I scored, she would give me a tenner and if she scored, I would give her a tenner so we're both even now."
Now Wales will turn their attention towards the vital clash with Scotland in September which could well decide the fate of both teams in their group. "We've just got to prepare as we did for these games hopefully we can put on a good performance and get the result we need," said Sarah.
"Scotland are a good team as well and it will be difficult but we have the team to do it."
