  • So special a player. I wonder why they didn’t let her start.
    This Barca experience has been what she needed. I think,much better than the English league.
    Kudos sister,you remain a wonder.

     
  • Why did they not start her from the beginning of the match? May be she will have scored more goals. If they know what is good for them, they better sign her permanently
