Ellen White finished the job she started to help Arsenal ladies through to the quarter-finals of the Champions League on Wednesday night.

The Aylesbury football star scored to give Arsenal the upper hand going into the second leg of their UEFA Women’s Champions League last 16 tie against 1. FFC Turbine Potsdam and grabbed another to kill off an exciting seven-goal thriller 4-3 – seeing the Gunners through 6-4 on aggregate.

The former Chelsea and Leeds striker almost ended the Germans’ chances with a 71st minute effort that struck the post, but nine minutes from time she was more clinical, scoring what proved to be the tie’s final goal from hat-trick hero Kelly Smith’s pass.
