England Women 0 - Canada Women 2

Recommended Posts

Again I have to say that the best team won on the night. How we miss Steph Houghton at the back, both for her play and influence. The old adage, that you should not change a winning team, is both wise and proven. Ok this was just a friendly, but the new players brought in, along with some players being asked to play in unaccustomed positions, did nothing for the cause last night.

That said, take nothing away from Canada - they played very well and England found great difficulty in piercing their defence. Frankly we didn't really look like scoring, despite some great shots from Jordan Nobbs, Hemp and Stanway.

Oh dear, I hope that new boss Hege Riise is up to this challenge. The dead pan look on her face throughout last night's match, showing no emotion at any time during the evening, leaves me wondering - is she the right person to take the reigns ? We will see. But - too many of the best players were sitting on the bench for far too long last night.
