As it became clear that this evening's World Cup quarter-final between Ireland and India would be decided on penalties, Ayeisha McFerran was presented with a chance to become Ireland's shoot-out hero.
She took it, and then some.
Winning 3-1 in the shoot-out, Ireland's goalkeeper McFerran was instrumental in keeping the Indian penalties out. Although huge credit will go to Chloe Watkins, Ireland's decisive penalty-taker, this will go down as McFerran's night.
Ireland's latest penalty shoot-out hero, saving three of India's four penalties, spoke to BT Sport in the immediate aftermath of Ireland's monumental win.
Scarcely able to contain her joy at what her and her teammates had just enjoyed, you're unlikely to see a more heart-warming post-match interview.

Quick to commend the entirety of the squad's efforts in bringing Ireland to this point, McFerran is thrilled by the prospect of what may yet be in store for this remarkable bunch of players: "Who would have thought this day would come?
Into the last four in the tournament now, Ireland will face off against Spain in what will undoubtedly be a difficult test. However, entering this World Cup at such a relatively lower standing to many of their vaunted opponents, the sky will feel the limit.
