Foord's Arsenal earn WCL draw at Juventus

Caitlin Foord's Arsenal have secured a comeback win against Italian giants Juventus to stay top of their group in the Champions League.

The Gunners fought back to draw 1-1 and remain unbeaten after three games, with Australia international Foord playing the full 90 minutes for the English side.

Missing several players including injured England forward Beth Mead, Arsenal fell behind early in the second half when Lineth Beerensteyn slotted Juventus ahead following a swift counter-attack.

Vivianne Miedema headed in from a corner to equalise just after the hour, but Jonas Eidevall's side could not craft a late winner.

Arsenal, who had been looking to extend their 100 per cent start, stay top of Group C, two points clear of Juventus and three of Ellie Carpenter's Lyon, who won 3-0 away to Zurich.

The Gunners made a positive start, with Miedema leading the attack as Mead is set for an extended spell out after she ruptured an anterior cruciate ligament in Saturday's Women's Super League defeat to Manchester United.

Arsenal pressed again early in the second half, with Foord testing Juve keeper Pauline Peyraud-Magnin before Lotte Wubben-Moy's header was clear off the line.

But it was Juve who broke the deadlock in the 51st minute.

Dutch forward Beerensteyn burst through on a counter-attack to slot past Arsenal keeper Manuela Zinsberger.

Arsenal responded to equalise just after the hour when Miedema headed in from a corner.

Miedema sent another shot on the turn over and during added time almost got Foord in on goal, but the Juventus defence held out.
