Manchester City Women goalkeeper Ellie Roebuck says the blues are good enough to lift the trophy for the first time in their history.

The blues have reached the semi-final twice, but have fallen to Lyon on both occasions, and holding a 3-0 lead over Fiorentina going into Thursday’s second leg, the blues are expected to progress to the last eight.

But City’s young keeper believes the team have what it takes to go all the way to the final and lift the trophy. “I think for us as a club it’s one that both the men’s side and the women’s side really want to add to their cabinet. We know it is going to be tough but we have real good quality players now within the squad and that has got to be our aim.”

The England keeper also believes that the recruitment over the summer has put the club in a good position to win more silverware, and that includes the elusive Champions League.

“I think we are in a really good position this year, we have got such a strong squad, we recruited really well in the summer. Hopefully for us this year we can continue to play well and give us the best possible chance to progress through the Champions League.”

Roebuck was speaking with Sky Sports News prior to City’s Champions League second leg at Fiorentina this afternoon.
