Matildas star Caitlin Foord confirms first Arsenal match will be this weekend

Australian international Caitlin Foord seems to have confirmed that her first Arsenal match will be against Lewes in their FA Cup tie this Sunday.

Foord signed for the Gunners in January but was playing for the Matildas in Olympic qualifying matches and so had to delay her start with the club.

The side have been documenting her first week in London with various training videos.

Foord took to Twitter to confirm the news. She retweeted Arsenal who had posted photos of her training and captioned it: "Looking forward to Sunday."

Arsenal will play their fifth round tie this weekend after it was postponed due to Storm Dennis last Sunday.

The winner of the match will face Tottenham in the quarter-final of the tournament on March 15.
