Magill scores four as NI Women beat Chinese Taipei in Croatia

Northern Ireland Women secured an emphatic 8-0 win over Chinese Taipei in the Istria Cup in Croatia today.

Ciara Sherwood made it 6-0 early in the second half before Simone Magill scored her fourth to make it 7-0.

Caragh Milligan rounded off the scoring to secure an 8-0 win, which sees the team sitting on four points from their opening two matches. 

Northern Ireland now play Slovenia in their final group game on Monday.
