Vicky Losada hopes Lioness Keira Walsh can bring her Euro 2022 winning form to Manchester City’s quest for Champions League qualification ahead of their showdown with Real Madrid.

City face the Spaniards, who knocked them out of the competition last season, at the Estadio Alfredo Di Stefano on Sunday as they try to close in on a two-legged group stage tie.

They will do so with seven members of Sarina Wiegman’s triumphant England squad at the disposal of boss Gareth Taylor, and none of them more key to their cause than midfielder Walsh.

Asked about the importance of her 25-year-old teammate, Losada said: “I’ve been on different teams, different leagues, and she’s just unique. We have to take care of her mentally, we know she has played so many games.
