I WANT A TASTE OF WEMBLEY
AS a kid, everyone wants to grow up and play at Wembley. The FA Cup final being played there has been a long time coming.
The fact those Chelsea and Notts County girls have experienced that i s fantastic.
It’s been confirmed the final will be there next season too and that’s a big deal. I think the FA were seeing if they got a good crowd and a big TV audience – and they did.
Perhaps it wasn’t the best game in the world, probably because it was such an historic event being the first final played there, and I know both teams have said they could play better.
But it was still a good advert for women’s football. I was co-commentating on the day but I must admit I wished I was out there myself.
Who knows, maybe next year?
