What They're Saying: Ada Hegerberg

“Scoring a hat-trick in such an incredible final is something remarkable. I don’t usually talk about myself as there is a team behind me but tonight I am really satisfied as it hasn’t been an easy season and being there at the big moments makes me extremely happy. It makes me hungry for more in the future."

Hegerberg, the winner of the first Women's Ballon d'Or in 2018, had not scored for Lyon in the Champions League since last October. Hegerberg won't play for Norway at the Women's World Cup, having quit the national team in 2017. (Reuters)
