Chelsea Defeats Arsenal To Clinch Continental Cup
Chelsea Female Football team has clinched this season’s continental league cup trophy.
The female blues added time tap in from Beth England snatched the Continental League Cup trophy from Arsenal after Leah Williamson looked to have exorcised the ghost of her missed penalty in last season’s shootout by equalising in the 85th minute.
It was devastation for Arsenal who sunk to the turf on the final whistle.
Sloppy Arsenal defending allowed England to to give Chelsea the lead inside 10 minutes, but Williamson sent the Arsenal bench wild when their heavy spell of pressure looked to have paid off and delivered extra-time.
But this is a Chelsea team that never say die, having come from behind nine times in the Women’s Super League this season, and up popped England to earn Chelsea their first ever League Cup.
When the team sheet arrived there was concern for Arsenal fans. Joe Montemurro could only name four outfield players on his bench, including two 17-year-olds and a 16-year-old.
