Wales make history at Cardiff City Stadium
Our Cardiff City Stadium home hosted a Wales record this past Tuesday.
Cymru made it three wins and a draw from their first four Women's World Cup qualifying matches with a 4-0 victory against Estonia in front of 5,455 people - now the highest ever home attendance for a Wales women's international!
Friday's away draw against Slovenia saw Wales mark their 200th official international. Icons of Wales' women's game were recognised back in the capital on Tuesday evening, including our very own Catherine Walsh and Zoe Atkins.
Speaking to cardiffcityfc.co.uk, Catherine said: "It was an honour to be part of such a momentous occasion. To see how far the game has grown in Wales is so exciting. It’s only going to keep on growing, which gives any young girls dream of playing football professionally and for their country even more achievable than it ever was before.
"Gaining my senior caps for Wales is something I will always be proud of. There are currently so many youngsters who have the potential to gain many senior caps throughout their career, including some very talented and ambitious players in our team and that is such an exciting thing to see!"
Zoe added: "It was such an honour to be included within the celebrations on Tuesday night. I have been fortunate enough to have played with or been coached by some of the ex-internationals, so it was lovely to catch up with them and hear more about their careers and when it all first started in women’s football in Wales.
"I was 18 when I received my cap and the manager at the time was Estonia’s current manager Jarmo Matikainen. My debut was against Luxembourg in a friendly, I came off the bench at half time and scored two! It was a day to remember!"
This wasn't City's only involvement at international level over the last few weeks. The Cymru U19 squad topped their League B Group 3 to gain promotion to League A for Round 2 of the UEFA Women's U19 Championship qualifying campaign.
Phoebie Poole started all three games, scoring twice vs. Moldova before adding a hat-trick in the crucial final fixture against Albania. Midfielder Seren Watkins overcame injury to be involved in the camp, and came off the subs bench in the Albania match.
At U17 level, Lily Billingham made appearances for her country against Italy & France.
