Wales ran out 6-0 winners in a dominant display at the FFA Academy Stadium in Yerevan. 

After Grace Horrell has earlier missed a penalty kick by striking the crossbar, she made up for it by finding the back of the net during the 29th minute of play. 

A second penalty was awarded to Wales moments before half-time and on this occasion Elise Hughes took responsibility and sent Amine Harutyunyan the wrong way in the Armenian goal to make it 2-0. 

Any chance of an Armenia comeback was thwarted early in the second half when Wales scored two further goals in quick succession as Emily Jones and Ella Powell got the better of Harutyunyan. 

Cassia Pike made it 5-0 in the 67thminute before Wales’ control of the game was capped off with a sixth goal deep into added time as Jennifer Hughes netted on her debut.
