Wylie hails historic night for women’s football in Northern Ireland

Northern Ireland National Women’s Manager, Alfie Wylie, believes that his team showed great character as they lost narrowly to Spain in their opening game of the UEFA Women’s Under-19 Championship.

His side conceded either side of half-time as they battled against a country that made the final of the competition the last time that it was played.

However, with a record crowd for a women’s match of more than 4,000, Wylie believes that the night could prove to be ground-breaking for women’s football in the country.
