A bus transporting the Manchester United women’s soccer team to a match in Paola became stranded after a section of the road collapsed beneath it. The back wheel of the bus fell into a large pothole as the road gave way, causing the vehicle to become stuck. The Manchester United women’s team is in Malta for a training camp, which included a friendly match against Birkirkara at the Tony Bezzina Stadium. Manchester United Women’s team dominated the friendly match on Friday night against their Birkirkara counterparts with a 10-0 score at Tony Bezzina Stadium. The two teams played in front of a record audience of 1,053 people, smashing the previous record for a local women’s game of 764 people. Before the match, Manchester coach Marc Skinner gushed praise on Malta and its environment. “It is a privilege for us to be here as we are enjoying this opportunity and obviously, this weather makes it for a perfect training camp for our players,” Skinner said. Manchester United started scoring early in the match with a goal from Vilde Bøe Risa in the 8th minute. English player Alessia Russo doubled the lead for her team in the 16th minute, and went on to score United’ third a few minures later. Lucía García, Grace Clinton, Nikita Parris, Martha Thomas all went on to score for Manchester United, with Jade Moore scoring twice.
