“In football that’s always a danger, we’ve all seen games when the so-called underdog wins.

“(But) we know the 7-1 game here wasn’t a true reflection of West Ham, we know it will be a difficult game. It’s a final, a one-off game, anyone can win.”

“To be able to play in FA Cup finals at Wembley is a dream come true. For women’s football in this country it’s great.”
