The smile said it all. Lifelong Arsenal fan Lotte Wubben-Moy’s equaliser late on salvaged a 1-1 draw against Wolfsburg in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final and she beamed widely. Tabea Wassmuth had given the visitors a first-half lead but Wubben-Moy’s strike, in her first start at the Emirates, ensured Arsenal travel to Germany next week with the tie level.
“The final thing I said to her before kick-off when we looked at each other was: ‘We’ve come a long way from Hertfordshire Uni and the fields at the back of that,” said her centre-back partner and fellow Arsenal fan Leah Williamson. “You can see what it means in her celebration. I love when she celebrates. That’s what you want to see as a fan of a team, somebody where it means that much to them. I’m buzzing for her.”
