Everton Women are through to the quarter-finals of the Vitality Women’s FA Cup after 2-0 victory against Championship outfit Charlton Athletic.
Kenza Dali produced a moment of brilliance to open her account for the Blues and give her side a much-deserved 1-0 lead just after the half hour mark.
Substitute Anna Anvegård doubled the visitors advantage deep into the second half to clinch victory and secure our passage through to the last eight of the competition.
The Toffees had a bright start to the game and Toni Duggan tested Eartha Cummings in the Charlton goal within the opening two minutes at Oakwood but the forwards low strike on the edge of the box didn’t trouble the hosts goalkeeper.
Duggan then came close to breaking the deadlock just before the half hour mark when she met an inch-perfect cross from Danielle Turner, but the number nine's header was saved brilliantly by Cummings.
There was nothing Cummings could do to deny Dali the opener minutes later and it was a moment of real quality from the France international.
Dali received the ball on the left side before she cut in onto her right foot and curled a spectacular effort into the top corner to give the Toffees a much-deserved 1-0 lead.
Anvegård entered the action 10 minutes into the second half and the forward nearly made an immediate impact.
Duggan put the Sweden international through on goal with a deft flick on and Anvegård poked an effort towards goal but Cummings got down quickly to deny the substitute.
It wasn’t long before Anvegård was on the scoresheet as she doubled our advantage with less than 20 minutes remaining.
Duggan delivered a cross into the box and while the initial header from the Swede was saved, however, the forward was on hand to nod in the rebound and add a second for the Toffees.
