This is the first time Wales, who went an incredible 687 minutes without conceding in Group 1, have lost in the campaign.

The win means the Lionesses are guaranteed to finish top of their group before their final qualifier in Kazakhstan, while Wales need to rely on other results going their way to get a second chance via the play-offs.
