The Icelander scored on her first appearance for FC Bayern two minutes after being substituted on. Rachael Kundananji (81st) only managed the consolation goal for the Kazakh women.
“I’m of course very happy with the result,” said coach Jens Scheuer. In the second half in particular, the team “played great football and laid the foundations for the second leg.”
From Linda Dallmann’s point of view, the difficulty on the arduous journey was “being fresh from the head. They weren’t dream goals, we all know that, but they were important goals, ”said the scorer.
