Caroline Graham Hansen made a brilliant comeback from injury on Sunday as Barcelona Femeni thrashed Villarreal 5-0.

The 27-year-old has been out since October with a thigh injury but needed just five minutes to get on the scoresheet after coming on as a substitute.

Barcelona were already leading 2-0 when Hansen came on and added the team’s third with a simply brilliant strike in the 70th minute.

The No.10 drifted in from the right, beat two players, played a one-two and then rounded the goalkeeper and slotted home.

Things got even better for the Barcelona forward when she scored another to make it 4-0 with a fine low shot across goal and into the far corner.

Hansen then put the icing on the cake by completing her hat-trick in the 90th minute after a great run to seal a 5-0 win for the league leaders.

Barca Femeni remain top of the table, five points clear of Real Madrid after 20 games played.

Welcome back, Caroline!
