Sam Mewis knows how much the win v Reading will impact moral going in to the daunting task of overturning the result v Barcelona. Speaking after the match, Mewis made it clear the team is in this together and are ready for all challenges ahead of the club.

Let’s dive in-

“I think our win this weekend really brought us together,” she declared.

“I think having a late game win like that where (Lauren) Hemp did something so sick, it really brings the group together when you know you can fight hard and pull something out.

“We know we have this other mountain to climb on Wednesday but to see that nobody gave up against Reading, I think that just demonstrates how resilient we are.

“It made me really excited to get to showcase that we have a lot more fight in us. The mood has been good and positive coming out of the game.

“Just seeing the way we continued to push, it was a little taste of how hungry we need to be going forward tomorrow.

“It is a sign we have it in us and are all ready to perform.

“Everyone has been staying after practice, everybody wants to keep working on things and keep getting better. It’s a special group.”

“I think something that is so special about this group is that everyone brings something that nobody else necessarily has.

“Everyone in the squad brings some experience or some personality trait that really contributes to the group as a whole.

“I can bring some of my experiences, some of my leadership from all of the past places and teams I have played for.

“Everybody has that and everybody will bring that and we’re really going to need everyone to bring their absolute best.

“It’s a great opportunity for everyone to come together and really bring their best.”

Pressure will surely be ramped up soon. Let’s hope they can perform admirably.
