"We will enjoy tonight but tomorrow it's back to hard work," said England manager Mark Sampson as his side booked their place at the 2015 FIFA Women's World Cup with a commanding performance.

First-half goals from Karen Carney, Eniola Aluko, Laura Bassett and Lianne Sanderson set up a comfortable second period and a 4-0 victory over Wales that maintains the team's perfect record in qualification. They have won nine out of nine ahead of their final outing in Group 6 in Montenegro next month and will begin their Canada 2015 warm-up by playing Germany at Wembley on 23 November.
