Arsenal ran out 2-1 winners at the Toulouse International Ladies Cup thanks to goals from Vivianne Miedema and Danielle van de Donk.

The Gunners fell behind after 22 minutes when Sari van Veenendaal was beaten by Stina Blacksteinius who raced through on goal to slot cooly home.

Arsenal were awarded a penalty less than 10 minutes later but Kim Little failed to convert the spot-kick she had won.

Miedema pulled Arsenal level, the natural-born goalscorer netting her fifth goal in just two games.

It took Arsenal until 15 minutes from time to find the winner, Jordan Nobbs making an impact from the bench as she found van de Donk who headed home.

Arsenal now face PSG in the same competition on Sunday.

“I’m really excited for my football journey with London Bees,” Nunn told the official Bees site. “It will be a big challenge for me as I’ve been out for a few seasons but the girls have made me feel more than welcome and really helped push me to my limits. My ambitions are to come back stronger and better than before and I believe Bees can help me achieve this.

My personal targets are to reach my full potential as a football player, working on fitness and my decision making. I want to be able to make an impact within the team, on and off the ball. I also want to try to get as much playing time and experience as possible to help me continue to grow.

“Luke has put together a hard-working and talented team and I definitely believe we have what it takes to make it at the top. With many different and unique players, everyone is fighting for their spot in the starting 11 and I look forward to the challenges which lie ahead.”
