Wales have qualified for the Elite Round of the UEFA Women's Under-19 Championships following a 6-0 win over Kazakhstan at the Namyz Stadium in Shymkent.
As a result, Wales have qualified for the next round of the competition as one of the four third placed teams with the best record against the top two in their section, following a 0-0 draw with Slovenia and a 4-0 loss against England.
Cassia Pike opened the scoring in the fifteenth minute of play against Kazakhstan, who were hosting the qualifying round of the UEFA U19 Championships, and she added a second on 38 minutes.
In first half added time, Gwen Davies found her way to the back of the Kazakhstan net with a strike that made it 3-0 to Wales.
A 62nd minute penalty from Ella Powell made it 4-0, before Daisy Evan-Watkins added a fifth goal five minutes later. Evan-Watkins then went on to bag her brace, making it 6-0 to Wales in added time.
Wales can now look forward to taking part in the Elite Round, which will be drawn in November and played in either April or June. They will be aiming to appear in the Finals for the second time in their history, having hosted the tournament in 2013.
The elite round will consist of seven four-team groups; the section winners join Switzerland in the finals.
