She scored a brilliant volley just 17 minutes into the game to give French side Lyon a 1-0 victory over Manchester City Ladies in the semi-final second leg. The first leg ended in a goalless draw.

It was her fourth goal for Olympique Lyonnais Feminin since leaving City last summer.

It won Lyon a place in the final against either Wolfsburg or Chelsea, to be played in Kiev on Thursday, May 24.
