We must cut out mistakes...

We must cut out mistakes... - 23 Sep 2011 - Women's Football NewsIt's fair to say that we were disappointed following the 2-0 defeat to the Republic of Ireland in our opening qualifying group game on Saturday. 
I believe we were the better side throughout the game but we just couldn't get that final touch into the net and we gifted them two goals. They had two shots on goal which we just gave them and at this level, you can't do that.
We're not going to blame individuals and point the finger as it is a team game - you win together and you lose together, but it's the same mistakes that we have kept on repeating time and time again. You can see that we are improving and getting better attacking wise, we are getting better on the ball in possession but if you keep on making mistakes, it doesn't matter how good we are - at this level you are going to get punished.
However there are a lot of positives we can get out of this game. I spoke to people afterwards and they said it was one of those games where the better team lost, which happens in football. You can't take anything away from Ireland, they had a solid midfield and the centre forward worked really well and kept the ball for them. They had their phases but I just thought that on the day, we were the better team and we can take a lot out of the game - but it's important we must nail out the mistakes.
With the way that we attack, we are confident in the forward players that we have got and we don't really work on set plays. We go out and let the four of us decide as we know each other quite well. We did get joy down the wings but couldn't convert in the centre, which is frustrating for us all.
Our back four, even though is an unorthodox one, was really good. Jayne Ludlow is really capable of playing in the centre and Loren Dykes played her second game at full back and I thought she was outstanding. I had a good connection with her on the right where I was playing and I thought we worked well together. Sophie Ingle is establishing herself as a really good full back and overall I thought the defence was really solid.
Right now though we need to start winning the games we deserve to win and this was one of them. You can always take consolations but nothing will beat the three points.
I think teams are going to beat each other in this group and that is something we need to remember and hold on to. A win would have been the perfect start to our campaign but it wasn't to be, so we move on and look forward to playing France and Scotland next month. If we can keep up that kind of performance and build on it, there is no need to be scared in either of these games and I don't think we will be.
We are all looking forward to playing France, the way they played in the World Cup proved they are one of the top sides in Europe - the top one, I would say, so you always want to play against those teams. We will need to keep disciplined but if we keep the ball against that kind of team, you never know...
