Vivianne Miedema races to 100 career goals with hat trick for Arsenal


In 110 games, Vivianne Miedema has 100 career goals for Arsenal.

The WSL’s record goalscorer fired in a hat trick against Slavia Prague to help Arsenal secure the team’s place in the Champions League group stage on Thursday in a 4-0 win.

For Miedema, it’s a club record that included no penalties.

With Miedema’s contract set to expire over the summer, manager Jonas Eidevall said after the game that the club is ready to discuss a contract extension whenever the forward is ready.

“Nobody is trying to hide that we would like Viv to stay on,” Eidevall told reporters. “But I understand from Viv’s perspective, what kind of player she is, it’s important for her to see what the direction the club is going [in]. For her, when the time is right, [she will] take a decision about her future.”
