The hammers, which in the previous round took Old Trafford (0-1), knocked down the reigning champion. They have taken the measure of the Manchester teams. Guardiola rotated and gave young Palmer stripes. However, West Ham was not daunted and endured the 90 minutes despite having in front of De Bruyne, Gundogan, Mahrez, Sterling… and even had the triumph.
Already on penalties, the fall of Foden, who sent her out, condemned the City. The hammers, fourth in the Premier, they did not miss any of their five shots and went on to the quarterfinals. A whole party.
