Lyon Loss For Arsenal


Arsenal finished as runners-up in their UEFA Women's Cup group, following a 3-0 defeat by host club Olympique Lyonnais. Only Lotta Schelin's first-half goal seperated the sides, until she netted a late second, which Camille Abily then added to.

Lyonnais now face Bardolino Verona in the quarter-finals between November 5th & 13th, while the Gunners will be up against Umeå. The Swedish champions topped their group after a 4-0 win over Bardolino, Marta on target twice, Ramona Bachmann also on the scoresheet and keeper Ulla-Karin Rönnlund conveerting a penalty.

There will be one all-German clash in the last eight, as holders 1. FFC Frankfurt clash with FCR 2001 Duisburg. The latter won group B4 after defeating Brøndby 4-1, while Frankfurt took second spot in their group, with a 3-1 win over Glasgow City. Sarah Schatton and Karolin Thomas scored first-half goals and although Rachel Corsie replied for the Scottish champions, Thomas' second confirmed Frankfurt's progress.

Russian side Zvezda-2005 were group winners with a 3-1 win against Røa Idrettslag and will face Brøndby IF for a place in the semi-finals.

What are sure to be the four favourites of those finalists have pretty strong front lines:

Umeå: Marta, Ramona Bachman

OL: Schelin and Katia

Frankfurt: Prinz, Garefrekes, Pohlers

Arsenal: Kelly Smith, Julie Fleeting

My English language is not very good. If you have no objections, I express in French language.

j'aime beaucoup l'équipe de l'Olympique Lyonnais en France. C'est une équipe solide à toutes les positions. La Suédoise qui y joue à l'attaque Lotta Schelin est extraordinaire: elle a compté deux buts lors du match contre Arsenal Ladies. Il y a Katia mais aussi Simone du Brésil qui joue à la position de Milieu de terrain. Sans oublier aussi d'excellentes joueuses françaises comme Sonia Bompastor, Laura Georges, Louisa Necib et Bente Nordby qui est la gardienne de but.

allez l'OL

et vive la France (rires)

Oui Vic

deux grandes joueuses de soccer

Marta qui joue pour le club suédois Umea


Lotta Schelin pour le club français l'Olympique lyonnais




elles jouent chacune dans un autre pays que celui de leur naissance et de leur enfance. La vie est comme cela au soccer féminin.
