From a foul of his comes the goal of Ohale’s tie in 76 ‘, for ten minutes later to decide the game in favor of theirs with a direct free kick: “Jessica Martínez and Asllani were debating who was taking the foul and I knew it was my zone … That foul had to be mine, and I look at them and tell them I throw it.“The ball went in.

The Daimiel footballer put the 3-4 on the scoreboard and Heel took the three points of Matapiñonera to seal the permanence. “You realize how bad you have been, all the suffering, the sacrifice, The sleepless days, the crying nights … are worth it.
