Chelsea Women were thrashed 4-0 by Barcelona in the Women’s Champions League final.
Chelsea Women star Beth England, who watched from the bench in the final, told Standard Sport: “I don’t think anyone can expect that 35 seconds in you’ll concede a crazy own goal when you’re just trying to clear your lines.
“There were a lot of nerves to begin with and that probably just set up the nerves even more. At that point, Barcelona caught us weak and they were ruthless, credit to them.
“In the first half, they bullied us, we weren’t winning physical battles and in the second half we showed more of that.
“The first half just didn’t show how well we’ve done as a team this season and it definitely didn’t look like the Chelsea team that’s played all season and got us to that point.”
