Ada Hegerberg, the talented player from OL, has once again made history in the Champions League with her latest goal against Slavia Prague. This remarkable achievement has solidified her position as the most prolific scorer in the competition.
During the match, Hegerberg confidently converted a penalty on the hour mark, celebrating her success with a joyful dance alongside Vanessa Gilles.

Eugénie The Sommer and the Pursuit of Glory
