Lauren Hemp, the Lionesses star, humorously acknowledged her fall by cracking a joke after going face-first during Manchester City’s WSL match against Liverpool.
In a crucial Women’s Super League match on Sunday, City staged a comeback to defeat Liverpool 5-1. Khadija Shaw secured a hat trick. Chloe Kelly also scored from the penalty spot. Following the game, Lionesses forward Lauren Hemp playfully mocked herself on social media, posting a photo of her falling face-first after a challenge from Liverpool goalkeeper Teagan Micah.
Hemp posted the picture on her X account, captioning it, “In the wrong sport.” Despite the awkward incident, the England star emerged unharmed. It didn’t overshadow City’s impressive performance.
Gareth Taylor’s side secured a crucial victory, especially after league leaders Chelsea beat Manchester United 3-1 at Stamford Bridge earlier in the day. The Cityzens extended their winning streak in the WSL to four games.
The club’s next match is on Wednesday in the Manchester derby, facing arch-rivals United in an FA WSL Cup group stage encounter.
