Road collapses beneath Man Utd Women’s team bus on route to match

The bus taking Manchester United women to their friendly with Maltese side Birkirkara was left stranded after the road collapsed beneath it.

The Red Devils had been at a warm weather training camp on the island – where they were scheduled to face the side. United were scheduled to face the Maltesese side in Paola at 5pm GMT, and the game got underway in time.

Despite the mishap, the Red Devils still ran out 10-0 winners with Alessia Russo and Vilde Boe Risa both finding the net twice. Lucia Garcia, Grace Clinton, Jade Moore, Nikita Parris, Rachel Williams and Martha Thomas all added to the scoreline.

Unlike the Premier League, the Women's Super League enjoys a winter break.

However, despite the winter break, United have been busy in January, and they're currently in negotiations for Norweigian international Lisa Naalsund. United are frontrunners after her contract with Brann ended: "An extension would mean that I will stay for the rest of my career.

"I don’t think the offer was good enough for that.”

They return to action on Sunday 15 January 2023 when Liverpool are the visitors to the Leigh Sports Village.
