France Women 3 - England Women 1

Recommended Posts

On the night the best team won. Both teams were without players who normally would have been in their team. England missed Stef Houghton and Lucy Bronze at the back terribly. It was a hard game in which France were dominant for most of the match. The French scored first and we knew we were in for a tough night. France made it 2 nil but England fought back hard and I thought for the last 20 minutes we looked better. Fran Kirby scored for England and substitutions were made by the new head coach, but England were looking so vulnerable at the back. Roebuck in England's goal looked crestfallen but did her best. When the French scored again we knew it was all over.   

I felt sorry for Ellen White thrust into captaincy, she worked her socks off, often defending too. But the night belonged to France and Bronze and Houghton will have some work to do, hopefully aiding the new coach in team selection next time. (some hopes - but they know the players better than the new boss does).

Next up for England - Canada women on Tuesday night at home.
