Beth England’s amazing strike gave Chelsea victory over Tottenham in their Women’s Super League match at Stamford Bridge.
England, that made her international debut against Belgium for Phil Neville’s staff last week, fired in just four minutes to the top-left corner.
Chelsea could have extended their lead when Drew Spence and Guro Reiten both hit the woodwork in the next half.
The hosts dominated the match before 24,564 fans at the arena of the men in massive parts but they were analyzed from the newly-promoted side.
Spurs were a danger going forward – Rachel Furness and Gemma Davison both had chances.
But it was likely to be a difficult day for Tottenham after Chelsea captain Magdalena Eriksson poked inches wide from an unmarked position, and they had been up against it in the off.
There has been a carnival sense during the match, set around Stamford Bridge before kick-off using a DJ set from JLS singer Marvin Humes and popcorn stands in place.
And on the pitch, the 24,000 lovers who had picked up tickets had been rewarded with a feast of World Cup gift including England defender Millie Bright, South Korea’s Ji So-yun and Norway’s Maren Mjelde, from the Blues line-up and soccer.
The presence was just over 6,000 short of the album WSL figure placed in the Manchester derby in the Etihad Stadium on Saturday.
