Haley scored eighth place, with Goal highlighting that after scoring six goals in her first seven games of her Serie A debut, “suddenly everyone knew her name”. Even more so after she went viral for her solo goal against Napoli.
“The young forward wrote her name into the history books in November when she scored a hat-trick for Malta in a UEFA Women’s Euro qualifier”, the post read highlighting one of the 16-year-old’s crown achievements to date.
