On the second leg against Linkoping…
It was pretty similar to the first leg, we started well and saw a lot of the ball but they hit us on the break. Linda Sällström put them ahead but we regrouped and scored a great equaliser with a great team move and good finish from Rachel Yankey. We went in 1-1 at half time after probably shading the first half. The second half was the same, we bossed possession and had all the ball but they broke with a goal. Emma [Byrne] probably make a little bit of a mistake, she knows she should have saved it and it would have been a real crime if we had gone out on that mistake because she played so well in the first game.

On the way Arsenal played…
We proved a little bit about how we can play, rather than just fighting it out we showed that we can play football. We showed fighting spirit and were rewarded by another fantastic goal from Katie Chapman with a bit of individual brilliance 25 yards out with ten minutes to go. They had a couple of chances and we had to make a couple of goal-line clearances but we could have scored three more after that.

On leaving it late once again…
I’m only 30 but I feel like I’m 55 at times because they put me under a lot of physical pain! The girls are great because we have created a real team sprit with a ‘never-say-die’ attitude. We’ve played OK over the two legs against the Swedes but we didn’t play anywhere near the level we can. But we have gone through and it was the same when we played Rayo Vallecano and ZFK Masinac, we didn’t really play the way we can. But we’ve got the mentality that we are not going to go out easily and that has got us to the Semi-Finals. If we can match that with a good performance, I think we can hurt anybody. That is the mentality we will go into the Semi-Final with.
