Ji So-yeon started scoring and contributed to Chelsea Women’s advance to the Women’s England Football Association Cup (FA) Cup final for the second year in a row.
Chelsea Women defeated Arsenal Women 2-0 in the quarterfinals held at Borumwood Meadow Park in England on the night of the 17th (Korean time). Ji So-yeon scored one goal. Chelsea, who have reached the final, will challenge Manchester City Women on May 15th to win their fourth consecutive title after losing two consecutive seasons. Chelsea lost 1-3 to Manchester City in the League Cup final on the 5th of last month.
Ji So-yeon, who was unable to attend the women’s soccer team call-up due to COVID-19 earlier this month, quickly recovered and showed off her outstanding performance on the day. Ji So-yeon scored a goal in the 16th minute of the second half leading 1-0, putting the wedge into the game. Ji So-yeon shot the ball with her right foot from the front of the arc in a pre-nuptial situation before the door, and the ball hit the top corner of the right goalpost and shook the net. Ji So-yeon was replaced by Jesse Fleming in the 34th minute of the second half.
