Eleven seconds. That's all it took Simone Magill, draped in the distinctive green colours of her beloved Northern Ireland, to breach the net of opponents Georgia in a June 2016 Euro qualifier.
Little did she know as her striker's instincts propelled her into the box to apply a poacher's finish from six-yards out, Magill was writing herself into the history books.
The 25-year-old discusses why netting the fastest goal in women's international football history will always be one of her proudest moments, her childhood love of watching her nation's football team, and juggling studying, working in a gym and training when she first signed on with Everton as an 18-year-old in the latest My Journey.
The forward also explains why she felt motivated to continue her education despite becoming a full-time professional footballer in 2017 and how she now balances representing the Blues and Northern Ireland with studying for a PhD.
