Amidst the feeling of joy after playing a crucial role in helping Northern Ireland qualify for the Women’s Euro 2022 finals, few outside of a close inner circle knew of the pain that Simone Magill was going through.

Her winner in the first leg against Ukraine tipped the balance of the play-off clash in Northern Ireland’s favour. By the time Simone pounced on a mistake to set up Nadene Caldwell for the late goal in the second leg that sealed the ticket to England next summer she had nothing more to give.
