We all did our best... - 13 Apr 2012 - Women's Football NewsLast week was one of our toughest ever assignments when we played France in our Euro 2013 qualifying group match and, although we ended up losing 4-0, we can still take a number of positives out of the game. 
It should be said that the scoreline was a true reflection of the game. France held most of the possession and created a lot of chances. The disappointing thing for us was that the goals we actually conceded were completely preventable and these were things that we had worked on during the week leading up to the game.
Everybody in the team did their best and everything they could during the game, so we could have no complaints. We had some youngsters and some new caps playing and they did extremely well given the circumstances of the game.
There was an attendance of over 16,000 for the game and I am pretty sure that the players who would not have experienced such a crowd will definitely hold that experience throughout their career. The fans and the atmosphere was terrific and, despite the scoreline, I think everyone will remember it as a wonderful occasion.
That said, we do have a young side which is still learning to play as a team and there is much that we can learn from the likes of France when we do come up against them. I think we have just got to look at the way teams like France apply themselves and emulate their mentality. We have improved lately but need to keep on improving and progressing, not just accepting results like this one.
Overall we are disappointed with our performance against France because we know we are better than how we played in Caen.
The last time I played in a qualifying group for the UEFA Women's Championships, we were drawn in the same group as Germany, whose team included the likes of Birgit Prinz and Renate Lingor, and this was a similar experience to that. Germany went on to win the tournament that time and there is every chance that, for the second tournament in a row, we found ourselves in the same group as the eventual European Champions.
It was not the best of weeks for us after Scotland staged a late fightback to beat Republic of Ireland the following day. A draw would have been the best outcome for us but after the Scotland win, we now have to win all of our remaining three games as anything less makes finishing in second place almost impossible.
It's a tough ask, but we are confident in our ability and believe it is still possible. We start with a crucial double header of matches against Republic of Ireland and Israel in June and, if we play like we know we can, there is no reason why we can't get our play-off hopes back on track.
