Europe have retained the Solheim Cup with Leona Maguire enjoying an incredible tournament debut.

The Cavan native went unbeaten in all her matches, making her the first-ever rookie to do so.

Maguire came into the final day with 3.5 points to her name as the visitors led 9-7 in Ohio.

Victories then for her, Madelene Sagstrom, Celine Boutier and Matilda Castren helped the visitors reach the required 14 points before going on to win 15-13.

Speaking to Sky Sports after her singles victory Maguire said she knew it wasn't going to be easy.

"Jen is a world-class player.

"We've done battle many times in college and this wasn't the first and it definitely won't be the last.

"I knew I was going to have to play some really good golf to beat her today.

"I got off to a great start, that eagle on two really sort of set me up and then I really kept my foot down all day."

Maguire is so often praised for her attention to detail and focus as well as her pure golfing ability.

She demonstrated these once again on Monday in not allowing herself to get distracted by the occasion or how the competition was panning out.

"I haven't really looked at too many boards.

"The goal was to get my point, that's all I can do.

"I've given it my absolute all this week, I couldn't have given any more and I couldn't have asked for a better week."
