Faye White believes that Kelly Smith and Alex Scott have the quality to help Arsenal Ladies win the Champions League this season.

It was announced on Friday that the England internationals had signed on for further spells at the Club, days ahead of their European clash against Gothenburg.

Scott scored the winner for the Gunners when they won the 2007 UEFA Women’s Cup final, while Smith is one of women’s football’s finest ever players.

Arsenal lost in the Champions League semi-final last year, and White says their double signing could help them go one step further and win the competition.

"They are international players and have had that experience in Europe with us, but also in World Cups and European Championships," she told Arsenal Player.

"They have learned extra things in America that they can bring back. They have been training with us since they have been back in the country and you can see the other players looking at them and watching the way they prepare and train. It is a great to have them back."
