Maya will go down in history as one of the players who secured United Women's first major trophy since the team was formed in 2018.

She posted a story on Instagram after the match from the club bus, showing her winner's medal next to a bottle of celebratory sparkling wine.

The 22-year-old recently signed a contract extension with her club and faces her final match of the season next Saturday as United host Chelsea in the Women's Super League, hoping to win for a top-four finish.
