Tobin Heath’s first Champions League start in Arsenal wasn’t the way US women’s veterans wanted, but Heath then scored his first goal on the women’s Super League side.
Heath started for the Lady Gunners on Thursday, scoring a second goal by defeating German club Hoffenheim 4-0. This was the first goal of Heath’s childhood club, who made his second appearance in this season’s tournament.
Arsenal gained a 1-0 advantage early on as Kim Little’s penalty kick found behind the net before Heath achieved a nifty finish in front of the goal. Vivian Miedema’s header from the right side of the box found Heath. Heath volleyed a Dutch forward assist behind the net.

Midema joined Arsenal’s lead in the 52nd minute, with Leah Williamson holding the final score 4-0 with just a few minutes left.
Heath played 74 minutes with the victory of Jonas Ideval’s team, helping the Lady Gunners rebound to Barcelona from the loss of the first match. The club has now won consecutive matches in all tournaments and has a two-week break before returning to its domestic schedule on October 31st with Brighton & Hove Albion.
The 32-year-old will first join the USWNT and play friendly matches against South Korea in Kansas City and Minnesota, respectively.
