What a game! I stayed up til the middle of the night to watch and it was so worth it. It was very satisfying to see Lyon prove all the doubters wrong and show just how good they (still) are. Women's football has grown so much over the past couple of years and it's exciting to think about the future.

It was such an intense game and I don't think I'll be able to sleep tonight lol. And what a goal by Amandine Henry! In her first season in charge of a senior team, Lyon's head coach Sonia Bompastor, became the first person to win the Champions League both as a player and as a coach.

I was so buzzed too. Lyon's assistant coach Camille Abily is Bompastor's wife/partner which is cute. They never mention the fact that they're a couple but they literally have children together lol.

And yes, Henry's goal was fantastic. Hope Ellie Carpenter's injury isn't as serious as it looks, the poor thing. She's so young so she'll bounce back but it was terrible timing.

I've seen their kids after France games, haha.

I hope Ellie Carpenter's injury isn't too serious, but Lyon did really well considering they were missing some key players and had to make a substitution so early. I thought Barcelona fans were quite arrogant in thinking that they were the clear favorites, as if they, not Lyon, had won 5 UWCLs in a row between 2016 and 2020!

And yeah, women's football is developing so fast! Can't wait for this summer's Euro.

Yeah, it was pretty insane to me that everyone was writing off Lyon who are always excellent in finals and have so much success behind them. Barça fans will be Barça fans though - they often a superiority and victim complex at the same time (sorry for being bitter lol).

Euros should be good! I wouldn't mind a Sweden win
