Former Sours captain, Jenna Schillaci reflected on the tremendous growth witnessed by Tottenham women within a short period of time which has now snowballed into their first-ever appearance in the FA Cup final.

“Yeah, it would mean everything. Obviously the club from grassroots to semi-professional and now in the Women’s Super League (WSL) as professionals,” Schillaci told Sky Sports.

“I think the club invested a lot of money to get the team there.

“To be in the Women’s FA Cup final in front of a sold-out Wembley crowd. I mean is crazy given the short time of being professional for five seasons. It’s an amazing turnaround and a historic day for the club.”

Schillaci thinks the experienced players in Tottenham's fold can lead the team to the title irrespective of the sold out crowd at Wembley.

She said: "I think it will really help. You can't really prepare yourself the minute you step out of a sold-out Wembley. They have got that experience and heartbreak and I believe they won't want to feel that heartbreak in the game.

"When you look at Tottenham team, they also got experience in their team like Bethany England who has won the Euros and played at Wembley numerous times. Becky and Drew Spence as well." She concluded.
