Women's FA Cup final: Meet the team

Find out more about Pedro Martinez Losa's squad ahead of Arsenal Ladies' Wembley showdown against Chelsea on Saturday

Emma Byrne

Now in her 16th league season with Arsenal Ladies after spells in Ireland and Denmark, Emma has played more than 400 games for the Gunners and is regarded as one of the world’s best shot-stoppers. 
 
The goalkeeper is currently tied with Faye White and Rachel Yankey on an impressive nine previous victories from 10 finals, and she could potentially break the record for most individual FA Cup trophies if Pedro Martinez Losa’s side triumph over Chelsea on Saturday.
 
Emma has represented her country at every age group and is still Republic of Ireland’s No 1 after winning more than 125 senior caps over 20 years.

Sari van Veenendaal

It has certainly hasn’t been an easy journey for Sari to the Women’s FA Cup final. The goalkeeper has played in every round of the competition so far, but has had to face two penalty shoot-outs against Birmingham City and Notts County. 
 
Her finest moment came against the Lady Pies, when she saved a trio of penalties to book the Gunners’ place in the semi-finals. The Dutch goalkeeper’s heroics also saw her receive the Player of the Round award.
 
Sari joined Arsenal from FC Twente in July 2015 after winning four league titles during her five-year spell with the Dutch club.
 
A Netherlands international, Sari won her first senior cap in 2011, keeping a clean sheet in a 6-0 win against Switzerland, and also helped her country to the last-16 stage of the 2015 Women’s World Cup.

Alex Scott

While it may be many of the girls’ first visit to Wembley, experienced Alex is no stranger to England’s home of football. The defender has previously played there for England Lionesses, against Germany, and Team GB, against Brazil, during the Olympics. 
 
For Arsenal, Alex has worn the captain’s armband in Kelly Smith’s absence and has led the Gunners to the final with some fine performances. The Centre of Excellence graduate was particularly impressive during the clash with Notts County in the quarter-finals. 
 
A real fan favourite, the England international will forever be remembered in the club’s history for scoring the winner in the 2007 UEFA Women’s Cup final against Umea, helping Arsenal lift an unprecedented quadruple. 

Emma Mitchell

After serving a ban for her red card against Sunderland, Emma is available for selection in Pedro Martinez Losa’s 16-player squad this weekend. 
 
The Scottish international has featured twice in the run to the final. Strong, athletic and good on the ball, the left-footed player came through the ranks at Glasgow City’s academy, becoming a first-team regular aged 17, and has made the No 3 shirt her own at Arsenal.

Casey Stoney

Wembley is a happy hunting ground for centre back Casey. The last time she visited England’s home of football, the defender captained Team GB to victory against Brazil in front of 70,000 fans during the Olympics. 
 
The 33-year-old has been ever present in Pedro Martinez Losa’s starting XI this year and has played a key part in the Gunners’ route to the final. 
 
Casey has enjoyed an incredible 12 months ahead of this weekend’s game, winning the Continental Cup, Player of the Season and being included in the PFA Team of the Year.

Vyan Sampson

Yet to feature this season under Pedro Martinez Losa, Vyan has shown plenty of promise since her first-team debut in 2014’s 3-1 win against Everton.
 
A product of the Arsenal Ladies Centre of Excellence programme, the centre back joined the Gunners from Charlton Athletic in 2011 and is known for her pace, strength and bravery in tackles.

Jemma Rose

Jemma has played twice this season in the Women’s FA Cup, starring in the victory at Birmingham before helping the Gunners keep a clean sheet in the 7-0 win against Sunderland. May 14 will the be the defender’s first trip to Wembley. 
 
The defender joined Arsenal in December 2014 after impressing for Bristol Academy in the Women's Super League. 
 
While at the Pirates, the former England Under-17s captain was named FA Women's Young Player of the Year in 2011. She also collected the Goal of the Season award for a long-range free-kick against Doncaster Rovers Belles. 

Josephine Henning

Centre back “Josi” arrived at Arsenal Ladies from Paris Saint German in February and made her debut against Reading Women two months later.
 
Although Saturday will be her first visit with Arsenal, the defender played the full 90 minutes of Germany’s 3-0 win against England at Wembley last season.
 
Tough in the tackle and a good reader of the game, Josi is no stranger to the pressure of cup finals having won three Champions League titles and the Frauen-Bundesliga four times. 

Fara Williams

Another player familiar with Wembley, Fara boasts plenty of cup final experience. The midfielder, who is England’s most-capped player of all time, joined the Gunners from Liverpool in January and has been integral in the Gunners route to the final, scoring a penalty in every round of the tournament so far. 
 
Fara will be hoping to add a second Women’s FA Cup to her cabinet after previously lifting the historic trophy while playing for Everton in 2010. 
 
The playmaker has been a key member of the national side for more than 15 years, featuring in the European Championships and three World Cups, and she also represented Great Britain at the 2012 Olympic Games.

Vicky Losada

Vicky has featured in every round of the competition so far. The midfielder marked her debut season in England with the Continental Cup but will be hoping for further silverware to mark her first visit to Wembley. 
 
The former Barcelona captain was educated at the Catalan club and moved to Espanyol in 2007. Losada spent 12 months in Sarria before returning to Barcelona, where she played for the next six years. 
 
The Spain midfielder then joined Western New York Flash in the National Women’s Soccer League where she was coached by Pedro Martinez Losa, who brought her with him to north London. 

Jordan Nobbs

After scoring against former side Sunderland in the semi-final, Jordan will be hoping to add a fourth Women’s FA Cup title to her impressive CV. 
 
The 23-year-old relishes the big occasions and few will be able to forget her two goals in the Continental Cup final against Notts County last season.  
 
England’s vice-captain has already scored twice this time around, including a trademark long-range effort against Reading in the Women’s Super League. Chelsea cannot afford to give her any space around the edge of the box.

Leah Williamson

Leah will be looking to add a second Women’s FA Cup title to her growing trophy cabinet. Naturally a midfielder, the Centre of Excellence graduate has excelled in a number of defensive roles so far this season. 
 
Heading into the final with two Women’s Super League Player of the Match awards in her last two games, Leah has featured in every round of Arsenal’s Women’s FA Cup run. 
 
While Saturday afternoon will be the 19-year-old’s first visit to England’s national stadium as a player, her assured displays in both midfield and defence at such a young age suggest there could be many more Wembley finals to come. 

Marta Corredera

Marta could potentially have two titles after just 10 months at the club. The midfielder joined Arsenal from Barcelona in July 2015, and marked her first season in England by helping the Gunners lift the Continental Cup with a 3-0 win against Notts County. 
 
The Spain international made her first FA Cup appearance of the season during the 7-0 win against Sunderland, and has impressed in the Women’s Super League ahead of her first visit to Wembley. 

Dominique Janssen

While Dominique has been to Wembley as a fan to watch England’s men take on her native Netherlands, the midfielder can’t wait to take to the pitch at the 90,000 seat stadium. 
 
The international has already hit the target twice this season, but is yet to score in the Women’s FA Cup. 
 
Comfortable in midfield and defence, the 21-year-old has established herself as a key part of Pedro Martinez Losa’s side since her arrival in 2015.

Danielle van de Donk

Danielle certainly won’t forget the Women’s FA Cup semi-final win against Sunderland in a hurry. The versatile forward not only scored her first goal for Arsenal since her arrival in November, but finished game with the match ball after a sensational hat-trick. 
 
Comfortable in any role across the front line or in midfield, the Netherlands international has already shown plenty of promise. 
 
Danielle started her career with Willem II before joining VVV Venlo. The 24-yer-old then moved to PSV/FC Eindhoven, where she scored an impressive 30 goals in 53 appearances before enjoying a short spell with Kopparbergs/Göteborg FC. 

Natalia Pablos

If it was not for Natalia’s heroics in the Women’s FA Cup quarter-final, Arsenal might not be where they are now. A goal down with nine minutes to go, the substitute scored a dramatic equaliser to send the game to extra time and then penalties. 
 
The Spain international’s cup form didn’t stop there, as she claimed two assists in the 7-0 thrashing against Sunderland. 
 
The 30-year-old will be hoping to build on last season, when she helped Arsenal win the Continental Cup and finished the campaign as the Gunners’ top goalscorer.
 
Natalia started her senior career at Rayo Vallecano where she met current Gunners boss Pedro Martinez Losa. During her 13 years at Rayo, the forward scored more than 300 goals, before she linked up with Jemma Rose at Bristol City for a season and then moved to Arsenal. 

Danielle Carter

Arguably Arsenal’s standout performer so far this season, Dan is currently the Gunners’ top goalscorer with four strikes to her name. Named in the PFA Team of the Year for 2015, the forward has featured in every round of Arsenal’s route to the final. 
 
Saturday afternoon will be the 22-year-old’s first visit to Wembley as a player, and she will be up against number of her former team-mates including close friend Gilly Flaherty. 

Kelly Smith

It was quite the return for Kelly in the Women’s FA Cup quarter-final against Notts County. After 10 months out with injury, the striker marked her comeback with a superb volley. 
 
Despite the initial plan being for the 37-year-old to not to play the full game, the club legend ended up staying on the pitch for 120 minutes as the fixture was won on penalties.
 
The captain has featured in every round of the tournament so far, and will be looking to claim her seventh Women’s FA Cup title on Saturday.

Katie McCabe

In her debut season with the Gunners, Katie will be looking to claim her first trophy in English football. The versatile forward is comfortable in attack, on the flanks and even at left back. 
 
The Ireland international has won the Irish equivalent of the Women’s FA Cup, the FAI Women’s Cup, as well as the Women’s National League with Raheny United. She has featured twice in the route to the final. 

Jodie Taylor

Still waiting to play her first game in Arsenal colours, Jodie cannot wait to get going with the Gunners.
 
An England international, the striker has previously played in America, Australia, Sweden and England, and arrives in north London with plenty of pedigree.

Asisat Oshoala

Asisat would love to mark her first season at Arsenal with some silverware. The striker joined the Gunners from Liverpool in March having impressed in the Women’s Super League, so much so that she was voted BBC Women’s Footballer of the Year in 2015. 
 
The 21-year-old has only played once in the FA Cup on Arsenal’s route to the final, but was unable to find the net against Notts County in the semi-final. 
 
The Nigeria International is no stranger to the pressure of a final, having been voted the best player at the African Women’s Championship during her nation’s triumph in 2014. 

Chloe Kelly

An exciting prospect fresh from the Centre of the Excellence, Chloe has yet to play this season although she did make an instant impact on her debut during the last campaign, when she scored after just 22 minutes against Watford.
