Asisat Oshoala wins FA cup with Arsenal Ladies….

Arsenal Ladies have won the Women’s FA Cup after beating Chelsea Ladies 1-0 at Wembley Stadium on Saturday. They won the trophy for the 14th time in front of a record crowd of 32,912 people. Danielle Carter’s goal in the 18th minute secured the win for Arsenal. Club captain Kelly Smith said: “The team were outstanding today, from the first minute to the last minute we really turned up. “We wanted the cup back and we’re really pleased with how the performance went.” Nigeria’s Asisat Oshoala played shone brilliantly for Arsenal Ladies in the final and was unfortunate not to have scored in the 43rd and 61st minutes before she was replaced in the 88th minute.. The pace of Carter and Oshoala, complemented by the central figurehead of 37-year-old Kelly Smith as part of a three-pronged attack, ensured Arsenal had all the best chances and Chelsea’s defence struggled in the first half, with their experienced centre-half Niamh Fahey not fit enough to be more than a substitute.
