The SSE Women’s FA Cup Quarter-Finals
Arsenal Women v Tottenham Hotspur Women (12:30pm)
Spurs defender, Siri Worm, is looking forward to locking horns with North London rivals, Arsenal, at Meadow Park on Sunday.
A record crowd of 38,262 witnessed the FA Women’s Super League clash at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. Despite the Gunners taking the derby honours that day with a 2-0 success, the 27-year-old insisted it was one of the most memorable moments of her career.
“It was one of the most incredible games I have played in at the new stadium, especially with it being the first north London derby in the WSL and having a record crowd with an away section,” Worm told www.tottenhamhotspur.com.
“We don’t see that a lot in women’s football and the atmosphere was amazing, I really felt the rivalry which I haven’t experienced much of in my career.”
The Dutch international certainly believed the Gunners possessed some extraordinary talent, adding: “I think Vivianne Miedema is one of the best strikers in the world.
“I’ve played with her for the last seven years in the national team and even at 16 years old, she was such a dangerous player. I think she has everything, it’s really hard to defend against her and she just needs one chance and she’ll score.
“It’s no secret they have quality all over the pitch and Danielle Van Der Donk is another impressive player who is very technical, and her work rate is excellent.”
Host’s Arsenal are looking to bounce back following their Continental League Cup final defeat at the hands of Chelsea.
The Gunners largely dominated the game but went down by the odd goal in three. England defensive midfielder, Leah Williamson, told www.arsenal.com: “I don’t think you could have asked any more of anyone. Literally, total domination of a game, and then you lose. I just had the conversation, ‘would you rather dominate and lose or not have the best game and win?
“At the end of the day, it’s silverware so I wished we’d won the game but don’t know the answer, or how we’d have done any more, apart from put the ball in the back of the net.”
