Hope Powell was scathing in her criticism of her side following their 3-0 World Cup qualifying group victory against Turkey.
England were without several players for a variety of reasons but Hope was offering no excuses. "In a game like this," she said, "that starting XI should be good enough to get the job done.
"We lacked quality and some of the passing was atrocious from players you'd expect a lot more of. I can't fault their work ethic, but they make the game difficult at times by some of the stupid decisions they make."
Fara Williams came in for particularly harsh criticism following her own performance. "For a player of her quality that (mishit passes) happens too often, and it's not good enough," said Hope. Will the Everton player take heed of the reprimand? "She'd better," rapped her coach, "otherwise she'll find herself out of the team.
Hope also sounded out a warning regarding her team's chances of winning the group and making the play-offs. "If we play as we did in the first half here," she said, "we won't be going anywhere."
