Liverpool star Rhiannon Roberts recently tied the knot with her partner, former Blackburn Rovers coach Nathan Rooney.
The two celebrated their day with their nearest and dearest, which included Roberts’ teammates at Liverpool and Sky Sports pundit Sue Smith.
The images of the married couple are breathtaking — but there’s one video they have shared that has truly stolen the show.
After the ceremony, the wedding party — which of course was heavy with football personalities — moved the celebrations outside to have a classic kick about.
The natural competitiveness couldn’t help but come through as they played a ‘Girls vs Boys’ match. And would it really be a wedding day if the bride didn’t score by nutmegging her opponent?
Roberts posted a video to her Twitter account on Saturday, showing her right in the thick of the match while still wearing her beautiful white wedding dress.

The Wales international shares a lovely one-two with Liverpool teammate Jasmine Matthews before the bridal party can be heard shouting for Roberts to take a shot on goal.
After receiving the ball back from Matthews, Roberts shoots and slots the ball through a man’s legs to find the back of the pop up goal.
The party erupts as the goal is scored and the ‘Girls’ Team’ rush over to celebrate with their teammate.
“The 1-2 with @jasminem250, the nutmeg finish followed by the BEST celebrations #onlyatourwedding #razzarooney,” Roberts captioned the video, which has been viewed more than 214,000 times.

League title with Liverpool
Roberts has had a lot to celebrate both on and off the pitch in recent months.
Back in April, Liverpool were crowned winners of the Women’s Championship and secured their promotion into the Women’s Super League.
The Reds were relegated in 2020 but needed just two seasons to fight their way back into England’s top flight.
To celebrate their achievement, they were part of the club’s victory parade after the men’s team returned from the Champions League final in Paris.

Liverpool won 16 of their 22 matches, drew four and lost two, which saw them sweep the title with 52 points, holding an 11-point cushion over second place London City Lionesses.
They scored 49 goals across the season, with Irish striker Leanne Kiernan contributing to 13, and conceded just 11.
The Merseyside outfit will return to the WSL next season to challenge alongside the likes of Arsenal, Chelsea, and derby rivals Everton.
