Watch: Haley Bugeja opens Inter account in Serie A victory over Pomigliano

Goals for Meran Women’s Kailey Willis, Lexine Farrugia at Sampdoria

The long-awaited goal at Inter has finally arrived after Haley Bugeja helped the Nerazzurre overcome Pomigliano and secure a crucial 2-1 victory in the Serie A Femminile.

The Malta international was deployed from the start by coach Rita Guarino as they were looking to bounce back from their surprising defeat at the hands of Como last weekend.

The former Orlando Pride player managed to help Inter clinch the three points with a close-range effort to cancel Pomigliano’s one-goal lead and move into fourth place with 13 points.

For Bugeja, this was her 16th overall goal in the Italian top-flight, on her 27th appearance in the Serie A Femminile.

This Inter’s goal follows her eight goals in the newly-launched UEFA Women’s Nations League which at the moment are helping Bugeja topping the competition’s scoring charts.

Meanwhile, Rachel Cuschieri also started for Sampdoria as they lost to Fiorentina 1-0.

Cuschieri’s side are currently seventh on six points.

Meanwhile, Malta captain Emma Lipman was an unused substitute during Como Women’s home defeat against Juventus.
