On This Day: West Ham United reach Women's FA Cup Final


West Ham United women's team made history on this day in 2019, reaching their first-ever FA Cup Final after a tense, sudden-death penalty shoot-out win over Reading. 

Rachel Furness' powerful header had given the Royals the lead early in the second half at Adams Park, but Alisha Lehmann squeezed home just eight minutes later to level the tie. 

Further drama followed after the home side was awarded a penalty, only for Fara Williams to send her spot-kick wide of Anna Moorhouse's goal. 

Extra-time followed and the exciting semi-final would go to penalties, with Moorhouse denying Jade Moore before Cho So-hyun stepped up to fire the Irons into the Final, and a date with Manchester City at Wembley Stadium.
