This was epitomized by Sam Kerr taking matters into her own hands when an idiot interrupted proceedings during Chelsea’s game against Juventus.

They played out a goalless draw against Juve despite having a plethora of chances, Kerr also had a goal ruled out due to offside and looked off-colour throughout the game.
