Fantastic to get first cap - Hannah
 Women's Football News 23 Oct 2011
Fantastic to get first cap - Hannah - 23 Oct 2011 - Women's Football NewsHannah Keryaloplis reflected on her full international debut for Wales and is setting her sights on a regular starting place in the side. 
The 17-year-old gave an impressive display when coming on as a second half substitute against France and she told Women's Soccer Scene afterwards: "It's fantastic, it's something I have been wanting to do for a couple of years now and to get my first cap against such a great side is fantastic.
"There were quite a few nerves as I went on but you just have to go out and play and you can shake them off."
Hannah came on moments after France had scored their third goal in the 4-1 victory. "We did well but their ability was a bit overpowering in the end," she admitted. "But we'll pick up from that and get ready for Scotland on Thursday."
The Liverpool striker had been widely tipped for a senior call up following a glut of goals at Under-17 and Under-19 level over the past twelve months. "I've been sitting at home anxiously waiting for the e-mail for a couple of months now," she smiled, "but there's a time when it had to come soon because I've been scoring goals and I feel I've been playing well - and been told so - so I knew it wouldn't be long until I would be up with the seniors."
Hannah's display drew praise from manager Jarmo Matikainen and midfielder Jessica Fishlock after the game, which drew a delighted response from the youngster. "To hear that from the likes of Jess, who has been around for a few years now, and Jarmo who is a fantastic manager, is a real confidence boost for me and should me improve and keep playing well," she replied.
Now Wales travel to Edinburgh to take on Scotland on Thursday and Hannah is hoping to have done enough to earn a place in the starting line up. "I'll keep my fingers crossed and keep doing the same thing in training and hopefully I can at least get on again.
"We'll take the positives from this game into the one against Scotland, a 4-1 defeat doesn't tell the full story. Confidence is still high and we feel we can get a good result against Scotland."
Jessica Fishlock meanwhile praised the Welsh back four and insisted they could push Scotland all the way on Thursday. "The score was quite harsh," she said. "We defended well and France didn't create a lot of clear cut chances but they were so clinical and I guess that we weren't really.
"The 4-2 game against Scotland back in February will have no bearing as we are a different side now and at a different dimension and level. We have a solid back four and midfield and we will score goals, we have shown that.
"Scotland are a good side and we will show them the respect they deserve but we're not far off them and they will have to be at the top of their game if they are to win. It will be a different kind of game and we will look to attack more but our priority will be a clean sheet."
