Ellen White's extra-time goal ensured FA Women's Cup favourites Arsenal squeezed into the Semi-Finals with a 3-2 victory at Sunderland.

Rachel Furness headed Premier League pacesetters Sunderland into a first-half lead.

White equalised two minutes after the break, however, and Julie Fleeting's 78th-minute header put the Gunners ahead.

Steph Bannon levelled the scores with a firm volley 10 minutes from time but White drove in her second goal two minutes into extra time to clinch victory.
