The match started just the way you would expect as our women instantly led the charge against a defensive Sassoulo team. Spurred on after Sunday’s success at Allian Stadium, the first chance of the match fell to Glionna who found herself in an excellent position after just nine minutes of action. Sassuolo keeper, Thalmann was sure to be tested, however a glimpse at the linesman ruled Glionna offside to prevent any threat whatsoever.
The game then turned on its head after 17 minutes of action. After being awarded a corner, it was Sassuolo that went ahead at Maribello Stadium. The Brit, Eilish McSorley scored with a thumping header after perfectly connecting with the in-swinging ball to open the scoring.
