Scotland & Glasgow City keeper Megan Cunningham is used to shutting out opposition strikers but could she keep a clean sheet against 24 simultaneous penalty-kicks?

That was the task faced by Megan at a recent Live Your Goals event at St Ninian’s High School aimed at encouraging more young women into careers in sport.

Ten sportswomen from across the country took part in a Q&A session with over 100 girls from the East Renfrewshire school. The Scotland National team were represented by Megan and Hibernian Ladies teammates Emma Brownlie and Kirsty Smith.

Speaking after the event, Smith told the Scottish FA: "It’s been really good meeting the girls today and they’ve had some really good questions. It’s been good to speak to them and tell them about how you’ve done in sport and maybe inspire them to see if they can get interested.

Broadcast journalist Margot McCuaig, Team Scotland Mountain Biker Kerry MacPhee, Glasgow City Head of Youth Amy McDonald, Team GB Hockey player Alison Bell, journalist Cheryl Smith and Scotland Rugby stars Lynsey Smith and Rachel Cook also spoke to the girls about their careers.

Working in groups the girls got the chance to ask questions of all the attendees with some interesting questions thrown up!

Smith added: “It’s important to try and get them at a young age so they’re not just interested in one sport but a variety of sports. That makes them feel comfortable in a sport before they pick one they enjoy most. That can hopefully lead to them being involved later on.”

After the Q&A session the pupils donned their #LiveYourGoals t-shirts and headed outside for a special kick-about with Megan.

Following a mass penalty attempt, the twitter hashtags of each country competing at the ongoing FIFA Women’s World Cup were written onto footballs. Each girl was assigned a ball and those who scored a penalty past Megan advanced, along with their chosen country, to the next round.

After several fantastic penalty kicks - some of which took Megan by surprise – the overall winner was announced as Germany. A sign of things to come in Canada perhaps?
