A late, late goal from substitute Michelle Hinnigan gave Everton a precious 1-0 victory over Team Strommen of Norway and booked their place in the knockout phase of the UEFA Women's Champions League.
Only a victory would have taken Mo Marley's side through to the last 32 but they looked to be on their way out after Strommen - whose side included former England international Una Nwajei - held on despite the first half dismissal of Diana Matheson.
However in the second minute of injury time, Hinnigan completed a remarkable summer for herself by popping up to score the only goal of the game, just ten days after captaining England to the UEFA Under-19 Championship title.
Everton therefore join Arsenal in the Second Round, which will be drawn on 14 August.
Glasgow City finish second in their group after finishing their games by crushing Georgian opponents Norchi Dinamoeli. City blasted seven goals in the first half, including a hat-trick from Suzanne Malone who went on to add a fourth just a minute after the restart.
Suzanne Lappin, Leanne Ross, Katharina Lindner, Ruesha Littlejohn and Megan Sneddon all chipped in with a goal apiece to complete the rout but it is Bayern Munich who will progress as group winners.
Cardiff City also notched up their record win in Europe, going one better with a 10-1 thrashing of Birkirkara from Malta. All bar one of the goals were scored in the first half, Natasha Harding leading the way with a five-goal haul inside the opening 32 minutes.
Nicola Cousins netted a goal in each half and Cardiff's tally was rounded off by strikes from Charlotte Miller, Dannielle Willcox and Marie Barrow.
