‘There was pressure… but wins like this are key’

We played our part in Women’s Super League history on Sunday, as a record 38,262 people watched us win the north London derby.

The atmosphere and occasion spurred Tottenham on throughout the opening 45 minutes, but we found our flow shortly after the break, with Kim Little and Vivianne Miedema finding the back of the net to secure a memorable 2-0 victory.

We spoke to Joe Montemurro after the final whistle - and this is what he said:

on the derby victory…
I thought we were a little sloppy in the first half with our positioning and there were a couple of incidents that allowed them to gain a bit of confidence on the break. Our second-half performance was very good, however, because we regained our shape and took a couple of our chances.

on the way teams set up against us…
In the game against Brighton you saw that they played a very deep block, hit us on the break and got a little bit of joy through that so I think a lot of teams are now looking at that gameplan and think that’s a way to unlock us. The pressure of expectation is there as reigning champions and every game from now is going to be a challenge. These are the most important games because they’re teams that we are expected to win against, with all due respect to every team because they are all good teams but at the end of the season these are the games that will be very important.

on his words at half-time… 
First of all, we pointed no fingers and we just got into the game and I told them to forget about the first half. I just showed them how I wanted the structure to look in the second half and I tried to give them the energy and the confidence to keep believing in the way we play because we knew if we stuck to our principles we would win in the end and it paid off.

on Kim Little’s goal…
Kim works on those finishes in training and we expect it to come on game day but there were also a few more opportunities in front of goal where it was just a matter of placing it in bottom corners but we opted against and that’s where I feel we could have had a couple more.

on the importance of scoring the first goal… 
We had a few chances to break into the box and I think we got behind their defence four or five times in the first half and in the second half but in the end the skill of the game is to put the ball into the net and we did that today.

on the record-breaking attendance…
It was great to have that many people here and it’s an amazing arena, I hope we’ve created the benchmark for many more games to be played at places like this in years to come. I said to the team before they came out that this was a special occasion and challenged them to make history today. I wanted us to get the result but I also wanted us to spark a massive rivalry for years to come.

on the travelling fans… 
Our fans were brilliant today, it was great to see the faces of the guys that are always at our games. They follow us up and down the country and abroad but hopefully we’ve given the appetite for new fans to come and regularly watch us so it was great to see some new faces too.

Internationals: Aubameyang assists for Gabon

We had three more first-team players in action during Saturday and Sunday's international fixtures. Scroll down to find out how they got on:

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang claimed an assist in Gabon's crucial 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying win over Angola. After Aaron Boupenza had given the Panthers an early lead, our striker sprinted on to a long ball and teed up Denis Bouanga to slot home.
 
The visitors pulled one back in Franceville with just five minutes to go, but Gabon held on to pick up their first three points in qualifying and go top of Group D.

Nicolas Pepe led the line for Ivory Coast as they edged out Niger in 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying. Franck Kessie scored the winner from the penalty spot with just 20 minutes to play in Abidjan as Ivory Coast climbed to the top of Group K.
 
Pepe will be hoping to be involved again on Tuesday, when his country travel to Mek'ele to face Ethiopia at 1pm (UK time).
 
Gabriel Martinelli started but was unable to help Brazil Under-23s avoid defeat to Argentina in the United International Football Festival final.
 
Our youngster played the best part of an hour before being replaced by Pedro but the damage had already been done, with Argentina scoring the winner after just four minutes.
 
Bernd Leno was an unused substitute as Germany secured automatic qualification for Euro 2020 with a 4-0 win over Belarus. Goals from Matthias Ginter, Leon Goretzka and a Toni Kroos double completed the rout in Monchengladbach.
 
Germany sit top of Group C, two points ahead of second-placed Netherlands going into Tuesday's clash with Northern Ireland in Frankfurt at 7.45pm (UK time).

Matteo Guendouzi was an unused substitute as France ended their qualifying campaign with a 2-0 win over Albania in Tirana. Corentin Tolisso and Antoine Griezmann struck in the first half to seal all three points.
 
The victory means Les Bleus qualify for next summer's tournament as Group H winners, having only dropped five points from their 10 matches.
 
Four more first-team players could be in action on Monday. Lucas Torreira's Uruguay face off against Emi Martinez's Argentina at 7.15pm, before Sead Kolasinac's Bosnia & Herzegovina travel to Lichtenstein and Granit Xhaka's Switzerland take on Gibraltar (both 7.45pm).

‘It was so nice to play in front of a large crowd’

WHAT HAPPENED

We claimed the north London bragging rights thanks to Kim Little and Vivianne Miedema’s second-half strikes against Tottenham on Sunday.

This was our first ever top-flight meeting with our rivals and it was played in front of a record crowd of 38,262 at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Chances were few and far between during the opening exchanges but Beth Mead came close when she won back possession, drove into the box and curled an effort wide of the far post.

Moments later, the hosts should have been ahead when Kit Graham saw her shot well saved by Manuela Zinsberger, who was quick off her line.

With 15 minutes remaining of the firs -half, Graham came close again when her powerful effort from the edge of the area flew just past the post before Miedema struck the bar with a thunderous first-time effort.

We started the second half strongly and came close again through the Dutch international when she saw her powerful effort fly just wide before Jen Beattie rose highest at a corner, but directed her effort over the bar.

Our pressure paid off in the 66th minute when Little weaved through two players on the edge of the area before firing home a fierce effort.

Miedema then sealed the points with less than 10 minutes remaining when she pounced on an underhit backpass, rounded Rebecca Spencer and sent the 3,000 travelling fans into ecstasy by firing home.

WHAT IT MEANS


WHATS NEXT

Joe Montemurro’s side next face Bristol City at home in the Continental Tyres Cup on Thursday, November 21 at 7.30pm (UK time).
