Ireland are into the Semi-Final of the 2018 Women’s Hockey World Cup
If you haven’t heard already, Ireland have booked a World Cup semi-final date with Spain in London tomorrow, as a tiresome display over an hour of hockey paved the way for a display like no other in a penalty shoot-out over the mighty India.
And for those of you who did not watch this great feet, goalkeeper Ayeisha Mc Ferran cemented her place in Irish hockey history as she put on a show-stopping display in the ‘one-versus-one’ battle.
And not forgetting Alison Meeke’s score in the one-v-one was just delightful, as the skill showed at this tense moment was second to none, with a cheeky nutmeg past the keeper. Finally, Watkins’ timely shot secured Ireland’s place in the world semi-finals.
And since Ireland are such underdogs, there is no reason we cannot take it one step further and take home a winner medal!
