Arsenal Defeats Brighton To Reach The Women’s FA Cup Final, As Mead Shines

Posted by

Jonas Eidevall, the Arsenal manager, characterized the opportunity to take his club out in the FA Cup final at Wembley so early in his employment as “surreal,” and praised Joe Montemurro for laying the groundwork.

“It’s a little bit surreal to be honest, you never imagine you will have the chance to win a trophy or be successful so soon,” Eidevall said.

“The closest I’ve come to being at Wembley was when I bought tickets for Adele a few years ago but then my wife and I couldn’t go. I’m definitely going this time,” he added with a smile, after a second-half goal and two assists from Beth Mead helped Arsenal to sweep aside Brighton with a dominant 3-0 win.

“We have kept the foundation and we are benefiting from a lot of the relationships and experiences that this group have already made,” Eidevall said. “My club in Sweden won the Championship last week and I know I’ve been a big part of that, I coached the team for 12 of the games and preseason but still I feel I have nothing to do with it even though I have.
