Sophie Roman Haug was ‘buzzing’ to help Liverpool FC Women into the Adobe Women’s FA Cup quarter-finals with a goal and assist on Sunday.

The striker opened the scoring in the Reds’ away tie against London City Lionesses with a close-range header, and later set up Melissa Lawley to complete a 2-0 win.

Matt Beard’s team will discover their last-eight opponents this evening, and Roman Haug revealed her delight at advancing in the competition when she spoke to Liverpoolfc.com post-match…

Yeah, I think we got off to a good start, we got good pressure. It’s a tough pitch and a tough away game but we did an OK game. We got a lot of chances and could have been more clinical and closed the game earlier, but in the end we got what we came for.

On Jasmine Matthews’ cross for her goal being ideal for a striker…

It was a perfect ball from Jas, so I literally just needed to be in the right place at the right time. I’m happy with that.

On it being her fifth goal of the campaign so far…

I love to be able to score and to contribute to a good performance. Like I said, we had more opportunities today so we could have been more clinical, but in the end we got the goals that we needed. We’re happy to move on in the cup.

On providing the assist for Lawley’s goal…

It was a long ball from Lawsy [Rachael Laws], a good ball from Lawsy. I could hear Mel behind me screaming for the ball so all I actually needed to do was touch it and flick it on. It was a great finish from her, a lovely goal.

On being excited to be in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup…

Yeah, it does [fill me with excitement], it really does. I’m buzzing to be in the next round and to be going forward in the cup. So we’re looking very much forward to that.
