Video – Arsenal Women get lucky with late minute penalty call in added time against Chelsea

Last night’s WSL game against the Champions Chelsea was always going to a crucial clash in the race for the title, with Arsenal starting the game 2 points ahead of our rivals.

It was always going to be an exciting game, but somehow we got to 90 minutes with the score remaining 0-0, despite Arsenal dominating the first half and Chelsea fighting back after the break.

But there was eight minutes of added time, and with just 4 minutes to go Chelsea had a very valid-looking penalty shout, but somehow the Referee just waved play on while the Chelsea women looked on in disbelief.

Have a look and see what you think?

So, would you have given the penalty?

  1. Though I think it wonderful the womens football is making great strides and getting , at long last, TV coverage of games and paper reports, plus women in TV studios for game of both sexes, I CANNOT, try as I might, develop the same interest for womens football as I do for mens.

    The usual lack of much response to articles on the womens game on JA, indicates I am far from alone.

    A significant percentage of the huge difference in games of both sexes is the generally awful standard of womens keepers, TBH!

    Womens game has skill but lacks pace and power, which make MUCH of the general excitement in mens games.

    I do not see HOW this can ever much change, even though I hope it does.
