WALES cruised to a 6-0 win in Kosovo to make it a perfect start to Euro 2025 qualifying for new boss Rhian Wilkinson.

The campaign started with a 4-0 hammering of Croatia in Wrexham and it was another impressive attacking display on the road in Podujevo.

Wales were captained by legend Jess Fishlock on her 150th cap and she was to the fore in the first half.

She set up Rachel Rowe on the half hour and provided another assist for Kayleigh Barton on the stroke of half-time.

Rowe was at the double on the hour, quickly followed by Ffion Morgan before a late brace for Elise Hughes.

Next up for Wales in their bid for a first major tournament appearance is a double-header against Ukraine at the end of May, in Llanelli, and start of June.

Wilkinson will be thrilled at taking six points from six since replacing Gemma Grainger, while the boss was also able to rotate her squad without the performance dipping in the hunt for a spot in the play-offs.

It was a positive start by Wales at Stadiumi Zahir Pajaziti as Ceri Holland saw her angled drive pushed out by Kosovo keeper Alma Demiri.

Kosovo, ranked 91st in the FIFA standings, had lost their opening qualifier against Ukraine and continued to sit deep under increasing Wales pressure.

A last-ditch tackle from Rrezona Ramadani blocked Rowe as the Rangers winger looked to break into the penalty area.

Rowe, though, eventually made the breakthrough when she drilled home a low shot in the 21st minute after being set up by Fishlock at the edge of the box.

Wales doubled their lead just before half-time when Fishlock’s precision through ball found Barton, who slotted into the bottom corner.

Wales added a third just before the hour as Rowe played a quick one-two with substitute Angharad James before firing in an angled drive which deflected off Blerta Smaili and into the net.

Wales scored another in the 62nd minute when Rowe turned provider with a cross which was stabbed home at the far post by Morgan.

Chelsea midfielder Sophie Ingle – who has stepped down as Wales skipper after nine years in the role, with Wilkinson set to bide her time over a long-term successor – volleyed over from close range.

Crystal Palace forward Hughes then tapped in with five minutes left following Holland’s driving run down the left and stabbed home her second in stoppage time.

"I think we needed to find our feet. It's a small pitch and we had to adjust to a compact game,” said Rowe to BBC Sport Wales.

"I think we did especially in the second half, we had multiple attempts and it was a convincing win for us.

"We have such a diverse group in experience, I think we've got leaders in this squad, it doesn't matter how many caps you've got, we all play our part."
