Arsenal’s Beth Mead: ‘I wanted to prove why I should have been at the Olympics’


Rejuvenated forward on the ‘wow’ factor at Arsenal, painful lessons in Barcelona and how Sarina Wiegman has helped England

The Arsenal forward Beth Mead is reflecting on the bruising 4-1 defeat by Barcelona in their opening Champions League group game. “The girls have been humbled in a good way,” she says. “It was a tough game.

“Right now, they’re the best team in Europe, if not the world. At times they were unplayable. We’ve looked at ourselves in the mirror and we’ve worked hard on what we need to do better. In the long run that game is going to help us. We’ve got a lot more games to play in the Champions League.”
