Peamount qualify for Champions League

Peamount United created a piece of Irish soccer history on Tuesday by becoming the first ever Irish side to qualify for the UEFA Women’s Champions League proper.

After a 5-1 win over Pärnu of Estonia, the Dublin side have reached the last 32 knock-out phase and will compete against some of Europe’s biggest clubs such as Arsenal, Lyon and Frankfurt.

Although going down 1-0 to Rayo Vallecano in their opening game, Peamount recovered to record a 7-0 victory over Slovenian opposition, Krka, who hosted the four-team tournament. The 5-1 victory in the final game ensured that the Dublin girls finished runners-up and the fact that they were the best of the second placed teams was enough for them to go through.
