'I knew if I bent it, that it would go in' - Siri Worm

Siri Worm’s outstanding third minute free-kick was not enough to secure Spurs Women the three points against Bristol City on Sunday.
Despite a flurry of chances throughout the game including hitting the post and having shots cleared off the line, Gemma Evans’ second-half header saw the points shared at the Hive.
The free-kick scored by Siri was her second of the season as she curled an effort past Sophie Baggaley in the Bristol City goal from 20 yards.
The left-back was adamant that we deserved more from the game given the opportunities we created, but was over the moon at getting on the scoresheet.
“I practice a lot of my free-kicks,” Siri told us after the game. “I’ve scored a couple this season so I feel really comfortable taking them. I knew if I bent it, that it would go in and I’m happy that we took the lead.
“We train a lot on it (set pieces). It’s our speciality because we have good deliveries with Ria (Percvial) and Kit (Graham) so I think that’s why we score a lot of set pieces.
“If we had scored to make it 2-0 it’s more comfortable and we can take a bit more of a risk. Because we didn’t make it 2-0, we made it harder for ourselves and I think we deserved the three points so we’re disappointed.”
Ahead of the north London derby at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Saturday, Siri added: “I’m definitely excited, last year it was an amazing experience. We played really well so hopefully we can bring that again in the derby.”
