Rachel Cuschieri and Apollon Ladies’ quest for Europe fell short to Czech champions Slavia Praha, after the latter clinched a last 16 berth courtesy of a 4-3 aggregate victory.

After conceding a dramatic 95th minute equalizer on home soil, Apollon let a two-goal slip from their hands as Slavia Praha were able to turn around the score to their favour, and take home victory in the second leg.

Nonetheless, this experience was a valuable learning curve for our Malta WNT member, as she continues to put up impressive performances on a regular basis on the best international stages across the Old Continent.
