Ellen White broke England's all-time scoring record as the team recorded their biggest ever competitive victory by crushing Latvia 20-0 at Doncaster’s Keepmoat Stadium.
White scored twice early on in the World Cup 2023 qualifier to take her level with and then past Kelly Smith’s mark of 46 goals, before completing her hat-trick shortly after the break.
She was one of four hat-trick-scorers on the night – Lauren Hemp netted four times, while Beth Mead and substitute Alessia Russo also registered trebles.
Beth England notched a brace, and there were also goals from Ella Toone, Georgia Stanway, with a penalty, Jess Carter, Jill Scott and Jordan Nobbs on a historic evening for the Lionesses, who were 8-0 up at half-time.
The result smashed their previous record competitive win of 13-0 against Hungary in 2005.
It was a sixth win from six Group D games for England, their first six fixtures under Sarina Wiegman – a sequence in which they have registered 43 goals and conceded none.
The Republic of Ireland also set a new record in their 11-0 Group A win over Georgia in Dublin while Scotland suffered an emphatic first loss of their World Cup qualifying campaign after being thumped 8-0 by Spain.
Braces from Amaiur Sarriegi Isasa, Aitana Bonmati and Mariona Caldentey helped Spain stay top of Group B, while Scotland are still second.
Scotland's Abi Harrison rattled the crossbar just five minutes in after capitalising on a loose ball in the box.
Spain took the lead in the 19th minute when Sarriegi nodded home and Caldentey doubled their lead in the 33rd minute with a fine strike from 25 yards.
Bonmati got Spain’s third in the 40th minute after a mix-up in the Scotland defence meant she was able to finish into the top corner.
Sarriegi got her second of the game after an error saw the ball trickle over the line and Bonmati doubled her tally minutes later, getting the better of Lee Alexander despite her best efforts with two quick-fire saves.
Ballon d’Or winner Alexia Putellas got herself on the scoresheet in the 62nd minute before Jennifer Hermoso netted Spain’s seventh with a cool finish into the top corner.
Caldentey got her second six minutes from time, hitting home from a rebound off a post to complete the drubbing.
Wales were beaten 2-0 by group leaders France in their World Cup qualifying clash in Guingamp.
A momentary lapse in concentration right at the end of the first half spoiled an otherwise resolute defensive display and Kadidiatou Diani capitalised to put the hosts ahead.
Jess Fishlock almost snatched a point for Wales in stoppage time as her shot struck a post, before Selma Bacha scored on the break to seal the victory for France.
Wales ended the game with 10 players after Kayleigh Green was sent off.
