The amazing 25-yard strike of beth England gave Chelsea victory over Tottenham in their first Women’s Super League match.
England, who made her international debut for the team of Phil Neville against Belgium last week, fired to the corner in just several minutes.
When Drew Spence along with Guro Reiten possibly hit the woodwork in the next 20, chelsea might have extended their lead.
The hosts dominated the match in front of 24,564 fans in the stadium of the men in huge parts but they had been tested from the newly-promoted side.
Spurs have been a danger going forward – Gemma Davison and Rachel Furness both had opportunities.
Nevertheless, it was definitely going to be a difficult afternoon for Tottenham when Chelsea captain Magdalena Eriksson withdrew inches broad by an unmarked position and they have been up against it from the off.
There was a carnival sense throughout the match, set around Stamford Bridge before kick-off with a DJ set from former JLS singer Marvin Humes and numerous popcorn stands in place.
And on the pitch, the 24,000 fans who had picked up tickets had been rewarded with a banquet of World Cup talent such as England defender Millie Bright, South Korea’s Ji So-yun along with Norway’s Maren Mjelde, in the Blues line-up and attacking soccer.
The presence was just over 6,000 short of the record WSL figure placed at the Manchester derby at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday.
