Arsenal Ladies maul Millwall Lionesses 7-0 to reach last 8 of FA Women’s Cup
Reigning FA Women’s Cup champions Arsenal made light work of progressing to the FA Women’s Cup quarter-finals by beating the Millwall Lionesses 7-0 yesterday.
Danielle Carter scored a hat-trick while Lianne Sanderson, Jordan Nobbs, Natalia Pablos Sanchon and Carla Humphrey also netted.
Speaking after the match Arsenal Ladies manager Pedro Losa said:
“Danielle could have scored a few more goals,” Losa told Arsenal.com. “She was fantastic all over the pitch so we have a young player who is developing well and we are very happy with her.
“We gave opportunities to players, they responded very well and having a big squad with lots of energy will be very important for us. You win trophies with a squad, not just a team of 11 players.
“All of our players are now in the position to compete and that’s what I’m trying to do, keep all of the players [available] so that we have the greatest chance of being successful this season.”
Arsenal are joined in the last 8 by Aston Villa, Birmingham City, Chelsea, Manchester City and Notts County. The quarter-final line-up will be completed by the winners of Everton v Bristol Academy and Coventry v Charlton.
The FA Women’s Cup Final this year will be staged at Wembley Stadium for the first time in its history.
The match will kick-off at 3pm on Saturday 1 August 2015.
