Arsenal Ladies with their Nigerian striker Asisat Oshoala have won the Women’s FA Cup in England for a record 14th time after defeating Chelsea Ladies 1-0 in Saturday’s final at Wembley Stadium.

Even though Oshoala had a couple of chances to cap her wonder display with a goal, Dan Carter turned out to be the hero for the Arsenal Ladies as her solitary strike for the Gunners in the 18th minute was enough to carry the day.

The goal for Carter came when defender Casey Stoney sent a diagonal pass to her on the left flank and  the fleet-footed star opted to come inside on her right foot before unleashing a fabulous curling effort into the top-right corner.

There were fair tries from both teams but there were no more goals as Arsenal held on to their slim win which hands them a record 14th FA Cup win

The FA Cup triumph is Asisat Oshoala’s first trophy since joining the North London side from Liverpool.
