Liverpool Women haven’t had the season we were hoping they would (they’re in third place in the FA WSL 2, for one), but there have been some great games and this weekend’s incredibly chaotic showing against Sheffield United and former Liverpool Women coach Neil Redfearn is probably one of them. The game had an especially thrilling end with one missed and two saved penalties—the last one by Rylee Foster in the final minutes of the game.
“I’m just pleased we have got the three points,” midfielder Amy Rodgers said after the final whistle went. “They protested about the winning goal but personally I thought it was fine.”
“Obviously, they have missed the two penalties and Rylee Foster has been our man of the match. She saved our bacon today with her save from the injury-time penalty and we’re hoping she is fine after the injury. We are very grateful to have someone as good as her.”
Rylee Foster was injured during the scramble following her save and was stretchered off in the final minutes of the game. So far, there’s been no news on how serious her injury is.
“I’m delighted for Amalie [Thestrup] to get on the scoresheet,” Rodgers added. “I’m close to her and this is a reward today for all her hard work. Obviously, we are disappointed not to be where Leicester are [at the top of the table] but we will do all we can to try to finish second and carry on the momentum into next season.”
Liverpool have one final game against London City next Sunday.
