HISTORY makers Glasgow City are celebrating becoming the first Scottish side to reach the last 32 of the UEFA Womens' Champions League today.
A 5-0 rout of Faroes side Klaksvik in Serbia ensured that City topped Group 5, with three wins out of three and in turn reach the knockout stages of Europe's elite club competition.
Goals from Kat Lindner (2), Leanne Ross, Jo Love and Eilish McSorley, ensured City's historic day.
They now await their fate in the UEFA draw, but are ensured to get a tough match as they will be placed against one of the top 16 seeds in the competition. Citys home leg will be played on either the 28th or 29th of September at Petershill Park in Springburn.
City got off to the perfect start scoring in the opening minutes of the game through Lindner.
After some patient build up, Clare Gemmell fired a great pass to Lisa Evans. Evans drove past the defence and cut the ball back from the by-line to Kat Lindner, who hit a well struck shot against the bar. The keeper managed to get a hand on the rebound, but could not prevent the ball bouncing pover the line.
On eight minutes City were 2-0 up. Eilish McSorley found Lisa Evans, who in turn played in Lindner and the striker took a touch in the box before firing low into the bottom left hand corner.
Leanne Ross made it 3-0, when she shot across goal into the back of the net after her excellent run into the box was found by Captain Rachel Corsie.
City almost made it four when Lindner showed superb skill out wide turning the defence inside out before finding Murray in the box, who dribbled past her marker, only to see her shot well saved by the keeper.
Moments later, however, City did add to their lead when midfielder Jo Love fired home inside the box with her left foot, making it 4-0 for City.
20 minutes after the restart, Eilish McSorley fired a cracker of a shot from 30 yards into the back of the net, after some dominant City possession, putting her side 5-0 up.
Head Coach Eddie Wolecki Black couldn't hide his delight at the result. He said: "I am delighted we have gone through and to be honest, we thoroughly deserved it.
"We can now look forward to a really challenging end to the season. I am proud of the players for all of their hard work and dedication and they deserve to play at the highest level in European football."
