MATCH catches up with NORTHERN IRELAND forward SIMONE MAGILL in the build-up to the European Championship…
NORTHERN IRELAND DEBUT!
SIMONE SAYS: “It was surreal making my international debut at 15 years old! I’d been in the system since I was 11 but it was always my dream to represent Northern Ireland.Iwasstillinhighschoolbut it was just an amazing opportunity and one that was I so grateful to get at such a young age!”
SIMONE SAYS: “In 2016 I scored after 11 seconds against Georgia, which was just crazy! At the time you don’t think it’s really anything and then I remember after the game it was one record after another and eventually it was classed as the fastest in international women’s history.It’snotsomethingyouever set out to do, but when you do it, you think, ‘fair enough, I’ll take it!’”
