Ellie Carpenter’s Olympique Lyonnais team won their fifth-straight Champions League trophy following the 3-1 victory over Wolfsburg on Sunday.
After moving to Lyonnais from Portland Thorns and Melbourne city in June, Carpenter has collected her first piece of silverware with the French giants.
The Matildas star was an unused substitute in the final, but should she force her way into the starting XI in the future, there will likely be plenty more silverware to come.
“We played a great season, we can be proud, and I can proud to be part of this team,” Lyon player Alex Popp said.

It was Wolfsburg’s first loss in 41 games, since a 4-2 home defeat in the Champions League quarterfinals against Lyon in March 2019.
Lyon still hasn’t lost a competitive match since the French Cup final against Paris Saint-Germain in May 2018.
