Glasgow City into last 32 of Champions League

Glasgow City FC
Glasgow City kept a clean sheet in all three qualifying matches

Glasgow City have made history by becoming the first Scottish womens' side to reach the last 32 of the Champions League.

A 5-0 win over Klaksvik in Serbia, ensured that City topped Group 5, with three wins out of three in the qualifying stages.

City will now face one of 16 seeded teams in the knockout stages in Glasgow next month.

"It's huge. I'm not sure it has sunk in yet," captain Rachel Corsie said.

"The draw is on Friday and I think when our names come out we'll realise what we've achieved."

"A few of the girls fancy drawing an English side and it would help with the travelling obviously.

"But we'll just see what we get."

The amateur side also defeated Spartak Jaffa 4-0 and Mosta 8-0 after entering the group as top seeds.

"A lot of people look at the results and think it was easy but it certainly wasn't."

"Scotland is one of the few countries in Europe that still has a purely amateur league.

"A lot players have to juggle their social life, their working life - several players are students, and that is difficult.

"It's a huge commitment and the players deserve a lot of credit for that."

And Corsie now hopes that commitment can be repayed with a huge home crowd at Petershill.

"We're definitely determined to sell Petershill out," Corsie added.

"It holds just over two thousand so we thinks that's achievable."
