Sam Mewis sends Citizens into FA Cup final after Steph Houghton’s brilliant free-kick opener

SAM MEWIS fired Manchester City into the final of the FA Cup with her first goal in English football.

Citizens skipper Steph Houghton opened the scores by curling in a peach of a free kick mid-way through the first-half.

The Gunners hit back and Jordan Nobbs drew the North Londoners level after unleashing a fierce drive from 25-yards out.

But just TWO minutes later World Cup winner Mewis slotted home thanks to Ellen White cutely nudging the ball backwards in the box after being mowed down by Leah Williamson.

City were let off in the dying moments when Katie McCabe whipped the ball across goal, but no one was there to make the crucial touch.

Boss Gareth Taylor said: “I pride myself on the football we play, someone told me we were the holders of the competition and it confused me!

“It’s great to be going back to Wembley.”

Arsenal boss Montemurro accepted defeat after her side failed to meet their usual standards.

She said: “They dominated the first 60 mins, they were better than us, we have no excuses.

“It’s disappointing because we have the capacity to play well and tonight wasn’t the night.”

And Gunners golascorer Nobbs added: “The first half they were the better team, we didn’t keep the ball well and that was the crucial point.

“In the second half we showed we could play football and if we’d done that in the first half we’d have been a better team.

“We didn’t do enough tonight so congratulations to Man City.”
