Sport: Finland’s Jutta Rantala sent Leicester into the lead in the 12th minute with a dream goal from the edge of the penalty area.

Bizet was replaced in favor of Martha Thomas after 57 minutes of play. The Norwegian national team winger was unable to leave his mark on the game with either a goal or an assist.

However, Jessica Naz did, who equalized for Tottenham with just seven minutes remaining in normal time.

The teams were equally good after 90 minutes, and the decision did not come until well into extra time. In the 118th minute, substitute Thomas scored 2-1, thus sending Tottenham through to the FA Cup final.

There, Bizet and Tottenham will meet either Lisa Naalsund and Manchester United or Maren Mjelde and Guro Reitens’ Chelsea, who will meet on Sunday at 15.35.

Chelsea have won the tournament three years in a row. In last year’s final, Sam Kerr secured a 1-0 victory against Manchester United.
