Harder became the center of attention in the semi-final match in the just-concluded Champions League for women. Here, Harder could net in the final phase of the match, which got the French star Didier Drogba to the keys on twitter with a congratulations and a thank you to Harder, to remind him of his own scoring in 2012. A scoring that also had crucial importance in the Champions League for Chelseas gentlemen then . In the prestigious CL final, however, Harder had to suffer the tort of seeing his team fall behind by a full 4-0 before the break whistle. A match Barcelona ended up winning by the same figures over the English team.
