Despite a sterling effort, City could not find the goals they needed to go through.

GLASGOW City crashed out of the Champions League last night after a stalemate 0-0 score with Fortuna Hjorring.

The scoreline meant City left having been beaten at home 2-1 in the first round.

It was a much-improved City performance against their hosts as they outplayed Fortuna for the majority of the match.

But, sadly, the damage had been done a week earlier when a poor start in Glasgow put the Scots two goals behind after 30 minutes.

Last night was looking to be a completely different story as City striker Jane Ross hit the post after only 13 minutes.

But, despite creating a number of goal scoring chances, City could not find their way past the Fortuna defence and, in particular, their keeper Maria Christensen was again in spectacular form.

Commenting on the match, City head coach Eddie Wolecki Black said: “The best team has gone out of this competition.

“Over the two legs it has been our performance in the first half of the first leg that has cost us.

“You look at the performance of their goalkeeper again, who was the busiest player in their team, and it says it all.

“I think the girls have done their country proud tonight.

“They are all still very young and they will learn from this and be better.

“The challenge for them now is to go on and win the league and be back here again next season”.
