Aoife Mannion hailed City's 'ruthless' second half display, as Nick Cushing's side stormed to a sensational 7-1 win over Lugano.

The defender, who joined the Club over the summer, played a key role in the Women's Champions League Round of 32 first leg tie, restoring the visitors' lead early into the second half with a well-taken penalty to ignite the goal flurry.

The successful spot-kick marked her first goal in City colours, with the England star having earned a reputation as a reliable set-piece taker during her time at Birmingham.

Mannion was delighted to have opened her account for her new Club and was pleased to see her side show their quality and hunger on a memorable night in Switzerland.
