Toni Duggan reels away after scoring Barcelona's second

England international Toni Duggan secured a 2-0 victory for Barcelona in front of a world record crowd of 60,739 fans for a women’s football club match.

Duggan scored Barca’s second in the second half at the Wanda Metropolitano stadium to shake up the title race.

The 27-year-old tweeted after the match: ‘So that’s how it feels to score against your rivals, in front of 60,000 people!!!! Wow, What a day, more importantly what a WIN! Today we made history…’

Atletico were leading Barca by six points at the top of the Liga Iberdrola heading into the game but saw that deficit halved following goals from Asisat Oshoala and Duggan. There are six games left to run this season.  More
