Vivianne Miedema's hat-trick helped Arsenal Women breeze past Slavia Prague 4-0 on the night and 7-0 on aggregate as the Gunners progressed to the Champions League group stage.

The Netherlands international's three strikes also saw her reach a century of goals for the club in just 112 appearances, with Kim Little adding a fourth from the penalty spot at Eden Arena.

Miedema opened the scoring in the second half with a well-time volley after being picked out by Beth Mead's cross, before the forward soon added a second with a composed finish.

The 25-year-old then completed her hat-trick as the visitors scored three times in only 12 minutes, this time by dummying the Slavia goalkeeper, before coolly slotting the ball into the bottom lefthand corner of the net.

And when Nikita Parris was brought down in the box, Little stepped up to slot the resulting spot-kick into the top corner as Jonas Eidevall's side sealed a resounding victory.

"Nobody is trying to hide that we would like Viv to stay on," he said after the match. "But I understand from Viv's perspective and what kind of player she is that it's important to her to see what direction the club is going to.

"For her, when the time is right, to make a decision about her future.

"I am of the opinion that, when you see the squad that we have today, that of course, there can be external players coming in and making us a little bit better.

"But the most important thing will be to try and keep the foundation of this group of players that we have together and keep on building with them."
