Amber Barrett made history on Tuesday night, when her goal at Hampden Park sent Ireland to their first ever Women's World Cup.

Barrett's toe-poked finish came after a phenomenal through ball from Denise O'Sullivan, and the first two touches from Barrett were also top level.

The FAI's super slow-mo footage of the goal has captured the control and skill on show from both players, and fans are raving about the clip on social media.

The video also captured a touching moment between Barrett and team captain Katie McCabe in the celebrations.

Amber Barrett also won the hearts of the nation with her touching post-match interview with RTÉ. Barrett hails from Milford in Donegal, and her grandparents were from Creeslough, the site of last week's awful tragedy which claimed the lives of ten people.

She celebrated her goal by pointing to the black armband on her arm, and kneeling in front of a pitchside camera.

Virgin Media journalist Rob O'Hanrahan noticed a touching moment in the slow-mo clip, where captain Katie McCabe appears to comfort Barrett before the rest of the team arrive for the celebrations.

It's a touching moment which shows the unity of the Ireland team, especially in the aftermath of such tragic events in Donegal.

Amber Barrett did her county and her country proud in Glasgow on Tuesday night, and will hope to do it on an even bigger stage in Australia and New Zealand next summer.
