Liverpool and Everton are set to lock horns at Anfield twice in the same week and ahead of the first fixture being played at our famous home stadium, a major injury boost has come the way of the Reds.
Speaking with the media ahead of the Merseyside derby, Matt Beard said: “Apart from [Niamh] Fahey, Leanne [Kiernan] and Shanice [van de Sanden], we’ve got a fully fit squad to choose from, which is great for me…
“She [Roman Haug] will be playing with a mask. She’s been back in full training this week. We’re really looking forward to having her in the squad.”
After signing for the club only a few weeks ago, a broken nose for the former AS Roma Women star has ruled her out of action thus far.
Now though, the club’s record signing is set to make a triumphant debut in front of a large crowd at the men’s traditional home stadium and this could be the perfect stage for the 24-year-old to mark her maiden appearance – hopefully with a goal and a victory!
