AMBER Barrett was sent off yesterday as FC Köln suffered defeat in their return to action.
The Frauen-Bundesliga, following the lead of the men’s league, was back, but there was no joy for Barrett and FC Köln.
Champions and League leaders Wolfsburg defeat Barrett’s Köln 4-0.
The Milford woman and Republic of Ireland striker was given her marching orders in the 76th minute.
By that stage, Pernille Harder, Svenja Huth and Alexandra Popp had Wolfsburg 3-0 up. For good measure, Harder added a fourth two minutes after Barrett’s dismissal.
Wolfsburg are now 11 points clear at the top.
The Frauen-Bundesliga’s return has bucked a trend for women’s football in Europe with the top divisions in England, Spain and France having been cancelled.Tags:
