Turkey 1 (Karabulut 90) Wales 5 (Fishlock 3,25,37, Wiltshire pen 32, Harding 67)
Wales moved back into second place in their World Cup qualifying group after crushing Turkey 5-1 in Eskisehir.
Jarmo Matikainen's side got off to the perfect start when Natasha Harding set up captain Jessica Fishlock to open the scoring after three minutes.
Wales continued to dominate matters and after Loren Dykes was fouled by Fatma Kara, Fishlock added her second goal from the resulting free kick.
Sarah Wiltshire made it three from the penalty spot following a foul in the area by Didka Karagenc on Harding and five minutes later, Fishlock completed her first hat-trick for her country when scoring direct from a corner.
The fifth goal came midway through the second half when Harding got on the scoresheet and although Arzu Karabulut grabbed a late consolation for Turkey, the result was still one of Wales' biggest ever margins of victory away from home.
Wales will now face Ukraine at Parc y Scarlets on Wednesday evening (7.05pm) in a vital clash, looking to take a step closer to the goal of qualification for the Finals in Canada 2015.
