There’s nothing quite like 2 very late goals and a point (a point!) to make you remember why you watch this terrible sport. Liverpool had a rougher first half than they have in a few games and despite securing the first goal (from open play, no less), ended up 2 goals down and looking like they wouldn’t be able to find another any time soon. Luckily the substitutes in the second half were able to turn the game around and with a goal and an assist under van de Sanden’s belt, it’s hard not to see her as the undisputed woman of the match.
Now let us know how you saw it. We’ve offered a few other options for you to select who had the most outstanding performance for the Reds. Make your choice and vote for who you think should be the Woman of the Match—or take to the comments to let us know that we got it wrong by not even including the real woman of the match in the options.
As always, anyone visiting on Apple or Google AMP who wish to vote and can’t see the poll can make it visible by navigating to the front page of The Liverpool Offside and re-entering the story.
