LAGOS, Nigeria (VOICE OF NAIJA)-The Scotland international will play against Manchester United at a sold-out Wembley on Sunday in an effort to win her fourth Women’s FA Cup.
When Erin Cuthbert thinks back to her jaw-dropping goal from the 2022 Women’s FA Cup final, she can’t help but smile.
The fiery Ayrshire native has admittedly struggled to score since switching to a less advanced midfield position a year and a half ago.
But she made sure to bring her shooting boots to the highlight event at Wembley Stadium last year since she’s always up for the big moment.
“What a moment that was for myself personally,” Cuthbert tells GOAL. “I don’t normally score that many goals so that was one to remember, especially when it hits the crossbar, comes down and then hits the top of the net. That really is pretty good going. I was pretty buzzing with that.”
Chelsea battled through extra time to win the trophy without having to experience the uncertainty of a penalty shootout, despite Hayley Raso’s late equalizer for City.
Cuthbert, who is currently in her sixth season at Kingsmeadow, best exemplifies this win-at-all-costs mentality. It was the kind of tenacious performance that has distinguished Emma Hayes’ team in previous years.
