Wales coasted to a 4-0 victory over the Faroe Islands that keeps their hopes of reaching a first major finals on track.
A frustrating first period saw Wales miss a host of chances before record scorer Helen Ward broke the deadlock.
A quick-fire brace from Natasha Harding and a debut goal from Lily Woodham after the break made the result safe in a match Wales utterly dominated.
Wales will next face Euro 2021 qualifier group leaders Norway in Cardiff on Tuesday, 27 October.
In a contest in which Wales could afford absolutely no slip-up and where anything less than three points would be seen as a disaster, Jayne Ludlow could hardly have been bolder in her selection.
Wales lined-up with a 4-3-3 formation, but with a huge emphasis on fluidity with Hayley Ladd playing in defence behind Sophie Ingle, who was given licence to dictate the game from midfield.
Helen Ward was also recalled as she looked to add to her record haul of 42 Wales goals.
It meant Wales were able to get plenty of bodies forward against a Faroes side who unsurprisingly came looking to stifle Wales and remain compact with a back four defended by a compact midfield of five with only Heidi Sevdal looking to trouble the Wales defenders.
Wales had taken a 3-0 lead in Torshavn in the reverse fixture inside 15 minutes, but though they created a host of early opportunities, they did not take them in an extremely frustrating first period.
The hosts had a height advantage over the visitors and looked to exploit that with Jess Fishlock and Gemma Evans producing some fantastic crosses that Wales really should have converted.
Both Kayleigh Green and Angharad James headed over tricky chances in the first 10 minutes and on 13 minutes Natasha Harding headed wide after Evans' super centre.
Wales' dominance was clear and Ward twice came close, but saw her first effort saved and then headed just over from close range.
Frustration began to set-in when James blazed over and saw another effort tipped behind by Oluva Joensen.
However, the pressure simply had to pay and Fishlock's smart chip released Ward, who finished emphatically to put Wales ahead on 33 minutes.
The relief was palpable and Green then struck the underside of the crossbar with another fierce effort, while Harding saw an effort blocked and Joensen was forced to tip a miss-hit Evans cross onto the bar.
Wales were so comfortable they were able to replace their record appearance-maker Fishlock at half time with an eye on the Norway match and Green almost doubled their lead just after the restart, but Joensen smothered.
The second goal duly arrived just before the hour when the ball fell kindly to Harding. who swept home left-footed to bag her fourth goal against the Faroes in this campaign, before steering in from close-range just moments later to make the points safe.
The advantage was big enough at 3-0 for Ludlow to hand debuts to Lily Woodham and Georgia Walters and Woodham scored with almost her first touch as she powered a header past Joensen as Wales scored three times in nine minutes.
Wales seemed certain to find a fifth when Ladd's freekick struck the woodwork, but somehow Wales failed to convert the rebound with Rhiannon Roberts hitting the crossbar.
The hosts again struck the woodwork when Joensen brilliantly tipped onto the bar to deny substitute Kylie Nolan with the Faroes goalkeeper emerging from the match with tremendous credit for keeping the score to only four.
Wales manager Jayne Ludlow told BBC Wales Sport:
"I am happy with the game overall but we started slower than I would have liked, ideally we would have put a few of those early chances away.
"Thankfully though the girls stuck to their task and created far more opportunities and stuck them away, so I am really pleased.
"There were quite a few stand-out performances and as a coaching staff we were happy to be able to get five substitutes involved as well.
"It is all a positive ahead of an even bigger game coming up."
