Wales defeated Belgium 5-3 in their second friendly international on Wednesday evening.
The match followed on from Sunday's 1-1 draw in Beringen as part of the preparations for the crucial Euro 2013 qualifier with Scotland at Parc y Scarlets, Llanelli on September 15th.
The scoreline could have been greater except for two late consolation goals for Belgium making the result slightly closer than it might have been.
Belgium took the lead after 22 minutes with a penalty from Aline Zeler, but two goals for Wales on the stroke of half time from Helen Lander and Gwennan Harries sent the team in in good heart.
It was 3-1 to the visitors after four minutes of the second half when Hannah Keryakoplis scored. Harries added her second after 53 minutes before captain Jessica Fishlock made it 5-1 after 76 minutes.
It looked to be a rout before Cecile De Gernier scored from the spot on 82 minutes, then on 88 minutes Aline Zeler make it 5-3.
Wales: Rhian Nokes, Loren Dykes, Sophie Ingle, Lauren Price, Nia Jones, Michelle Green (sub Angharad James 71mins), Sarah Wiltshire (sub Amie Lea 80mins (sub Kayleigh Green 84mins)), Hannah Keryakoplis (sub Natasha Harding 64mins), Helen Lander (sub Jodie Botterill 76mins), Gwennan Harries, Jessica Fishlock (sub Josie Green 84mins).
