FCIrlande Auderghem Ladies1
That was a nice game played under rough weather conditions! And we actually needed that victory if we still wanted to fight to stay in D2.
After a clear chance from the other team, our first goal arrived in the 1st part after a pass from Lisa to Linette. She beautifully finished the action.
Virginie scored the 2nd and the 3rd goal after a shoot from Linette, whose strength could not be stopped by the goalkeeper.
Our defence played very good, very solid in the back with Rossa catching all the balls in the centre. In addition, we could play with passes instead of individual actions.
Despite the great condition of the pitch, it was not an easy game: far away, low temperature, very late in the evening.
A special mention to the players on the bench who resisted and remained motivated despite the coldness.
Final result was 3-0 reflecting our ball possession.
The girls in green are back on the field for the 2nd part of the season. It is a late night match against KHO Wolvertem Merchtem A. But Ireland does not take away the 3 points.
At 12’ the opponents score (0-1).
23’ the opponents score again (0-2).
60’ Myriam comes in for Sofie.
67’ Nawal comes in for Lisa.
83’ Wolvertem manages to score a 3rd goal (0-3) and goes home with the victory.
The girls in green will fight harder next match and are determined to maintain their place in D2.
Last game before winter break for the girls in green. It’s cold and windy. La Louvière arrives with only 9 players. Irlande is highly motivated to win the match in order to keep a fair place in D2 ranking.
Goals by: Lisa (1), Linette (1), Virg (5), Isa (3) & Momo (1).
FCI concedes one goal to La Louvière in the second half.
Anais and Momo are replaced by Céline and Nawal in the 46th minute.
Not the greatest game of the season, but a stimulating score for this challenging season.
Girls in green traveled away near Genk on this windy Saturday to meet one point ahead Bokrijk, also a fresh promoted team in D2.
Classy to discover that men’s game will be played on the second pitch while ladies will confront themselves on the main one in front of the buvette.
Our pitch’ captain Geani lost the toss and Girls in green started the game on the ascending way of the pitch, wind against.
Bokrijk dragged us into a slow rhythm, maybe also influenced by the heavy pitch, and surprised one of our defender with a high pressure: 1-0.
Ladies suffered other two good opportunities saved by GK Clara!
A few attacks lead us in front of their 16 meters but central defenders stopped it by faults. No goal on those free kicks but ladies kept pushing until Isa’s ball uplift was passed to Sofie who slipped the ball to Virginie. One control to pass the defender and she pushes the ball in the net: 1-1!
Girls in green keep pushing, Ines overflows on the side and centers, Ref sees Virginie being hugged by a defender and whistle a penalty, calmly transformed by Linette: 1-2!
Conditions are better for second half, with wind in our back and descending pitch.
Third goal comes from “Sofie renard des surfaces”: their goalkeeper pushed back Linette’s free kick but Sofie is well positioned and pushes the ball in: 1-3!
Sick and brave Tammy is subbed for fresh leg’s Fanni.
Rossa makes several breakthroughs but opponents keep mowing her down.
Bokrijk is often late on the ball but puts the feet. The referee is quite fair but the tension is rising.
Our defense continues to suffer high pressure from opposition and sometimes our midfield fails to offer transition solutions. We lose the ball and their striker get a face to face with Clara and scores: 2-3.
Linette rushes down the side on a pretty pass form Isa and sends a cannonball inaccessible to their goalkeeper: 2-4!
FC Irlande Auderghem keeps pushing and a nice shot form Momo is pushed back by their GK. Linette takes it back but hits the brave GK. Virginie follows and scores: 2-5!!
Nawal and Lisa enter for Sofie and Linette but despite several occasions (2 heads in a row for Isa worth to be quoted) score remains unchanged.
Slow start but great win at the end. Now 11th on the ranking (on 14 places). Let’s keep it that way with a win next week!
Game against RFC Liege, 8th in the ranking, FC Irlande 13th out of 14th, with one draw and 7 loss.
The first 10 minutes are quite difficult, we struggle to find ourselves and it is not easy to provide good football. After a while though, we start combining and it becomes a lot better.
After a very good press from Linette on their goalkeeper, she panics and sends the ball not far from the 16m where Lisa is. With a fantastic shoot from outside the box, Lisa scores and allows FCI ladies to lead at half time after a dominating first half.
We start the second half with the same motivation but Liege gets more and more agressive and tries to score quickly. But Clara makes several giant saves that keep us in the game. We keep playing football and combining as we know. And it pays off!
Myriam controls the ball and sends a wonderful deep pass to Linette who is faster than her defender and finds the goal after a great run ! 2-0 FC Irlande!
Liege keeps on pushing but FC Irlande plays, moves and gets the first ever victory together at national level! A great achievement thanks to everyone’s motivation, work and positive attitude!
Great feeling this weekend and waiting for others to come.
GO IRLANDE 🇮🇪🍀
It was a taught game and at some point we even had the feeling we could win it, particularly at the beginning of the 2nd half. At the end, however, physical tiredness came up and we received a 2nd goal when we were close to get a point in our favour. That was the 0-2.
The first goal, instead, came at the very end of the 1st half (minute 42). On a clear off-side which was not remarked by the referee, they scored completely alone in front of the goal. Clara, despite having made some very good actions in the goal during the whole game, could not avoid that one.
The second half started with a good feeling for FC Irlande but, despite some good isolated actions, no goal on our side was scored.
This weekend FC Irlande Auderghem A faced D.V.C. Eva’s Tienen A at their pitch. The game promised to be somewhat challenging for the girls in green as Tienen competes for the first places of the division.
FC Irlande took a bit of time before getting 100% in the game. They then increased attention and intensity. Unfortunately, their opportunities didn’t lead into goals. In front of the strikers Tienen’s goalkeeper caught all shots. On the other side, several Tiense opportunities and every single mistake from the ladies ended in a goal. Half time score: 5-0.
The girls in green performed well in the second half. Clara also did great saves. They scared Tienen a number of time but didn’t manage to score. Tiny mistakes finished in the net. Final score: 8-0. FC Irlande still has to improve, but bit by bit the ladies gain experience.
Ladies, let’s keep our heads up and continue fighting hard!
A convincing start against Standard de Liege: the ladies performed very well in the first half. A lot of intensity and occasions, quick and accurate passing. Nice saves from Clara and a beautiful goal from Rossa who was faster than her opponents after a smart assist from Momo. An important save on the goal line by Geani gave the deserved 1-1 half time score.
In the first minute of the second half Standard was first on the ball after a good save of Clara following a corner kick: 1-2.
The ladies still had some good chances to equalize, but eventually Standard showed their physical presence and scored two more goals to set the final score: 1-4.
From the beginning of the match Leuven showed his superiority. Too static compared to the movements of the opponents, the score was already 5-0 after 10 minutes.
With a little more physical impact , the breakage was limited to 8-0 at halftime.
Ireland goes back to the field with more attention. By playing higher and touching more balls, the girls were a little more dangerous. Leuven showed superiority in all the compartments of the game and won the match 12-0.
Logic, great team, girls from Ireland have a lot to learn.
The game is important. We know that we can do something in games against this kind of teams.
The game starts and we are well placed.
We try combinations and to make circulate the ball from right to left.
Finally, a good action from virg and Linette leads to the first goal ( Myriam).
But soon after sibret scores too.
After that the ball was overall for the opposent. And just before the half time we took a goal.
The game has just restarted and we conceded a goal. The victory is now complicated but we try to move forwards.
Teams can’t find the breakthrough.
But 75′, sibret scores again.
77′ we score thanks to Linette with a wonderful kick.
Goals : 1-0 13′ Myriam
2-4 77′ Linette
In : Delphine, Laura, Sofie
Out : Clelia, Stéphanie, Myriam
Chastre A – FC Irlande Ladies I: Saturday 15th, 17.30h
Tough game in which the girls in green started taking the lead scoring first against Chastre. The first goal came from a pass from the left side inside the box which in one touch was shot to the goal. 0-1!
FC Irlande tried to keep up the score pressing high, but soon the opposite team tied the game 1-1.
Afterwards Chastre missed 2 penalties. One of them came from a grab inside the box during a corner, and the second one in a late action from the defender in her attempt to catch the ball from the other player.
Unfortunately, in an action of the game Isa injured her ankle. After driving the ball all along the right side she was about to shot to the goal, but, just before, she was stopped by a defender. After that, she had to be replaced by another player.
A few minutes before ending the first half Chastre scored, ending the first 45 minutes 2-1.
In the second half of the game, the physical superiority of the opponents was noticed and made them control the next 45 minutes. Some of the next goals came from the high speed of their strikers.The game ended 7-1.
Isa, Clélia and Momo were replaced, due to different injuries, by Christina, Inés de la Serna and Laura.
Let’s keep working hard and good results will come soon!!! Come on FC Irlande!!!!

The ladies are facing their first D2 league game on a windy, cloudy but not too cold August afternoon. The starting XI:
Fanni Geani Ariane Tammy
Rossa Lisa Virginie
Bench: Christina, Carmen
The game is even in the first 15 minutes with good positioning of FCI players and a good team effort.
Big chance for Virginie after a long ball forward and the keeper has to stretch to save it to a corner. In the 19th minute FCI concedes an unlucky goal after a corner kick that changes direction on one of our own players. 1-0.
FCI fights back and after a corner Myriam delivers a well placed header. The opponents are perfectly positoned to defend the corner and though the ball bounces back from the goal line to Myriam, her second chance is stopped by another defender on the goal line.
In the 30th minute after a ball loss in the defense line the opponents react like professionals and their very quick player nr 5 sprints alone towards the goal and scores the second goal of the first half. 2-0.
The third big occasion arrives for FCI after a pass from Tammy to Myriam who dribbles through a player and passes the ball to Fanni in the space behind the defense. Fanni goes 1 vs 1 with the keeper but the goalie saves it to a corner.
After the corner the Wolvertem defense could not clear the ball further than the penalty point where Stef shows her excellent shooting skills with a volley that is headed to corner by an opponent.
In the 59th minute after a suspicious offside position of Wolvertem players while FCI defense in forward movement the home team sets the 3-0 score.
62nd minute Christina comes in for Lisa.
In the 66th a similar goal makes it 4-0.
In the 70th minute Ariane suffers a horrible knee injury and she is carried off the field on a stretcher, which leaves the team in shock for the rest of the game. Carmen comes in for Ariane.
In the last 20 minutes Wolvertem dominates the game fully and Clara shows many excellent saves.
In the 82nd minute Wolvertem sets the final score of 5-0.
It’s unfortunate to lose by 5-0 after a more than reasonable first half. Good that there is still time to improve in this league.
The whole team wishes Ariane a very quick recovery!!!
The match started at 16:00 in Aalter. We knew it would be a difficult game against FC Brugge B but we were all motivated and ready to fight. Unfortunately, the final score is 9-0 for Brugge B. However, we tried to play each ball and to create some actions.
At 30′, Tammy had to be replaced by Delphine because of an injury. Half time ended with a score of 4-0 for FC Brugge B. The coaches asked us to try to play quicker because of the strong pressing of Brugge and to get stronger in the duels.
During the second half Lisa, Carmen, and Lotte replaced respectively Myriam, Virginie, and Clelia. Second half ended with a score of 5-0 for Brugge B.
As a conclusion, holidays are over!!!! A challenging and exciting season is starting! We need to focus on trainings, trainings and trainings 🙂
Come on LADIES!!!
