An unfair reflection...

An unfair reflection... - 1 Jun 2012 - Women's Football NewsAlthough we have areas which can be improved after our 4-1 defeat to Sweden on Saturday, I also feel that we can still approach the future with a lot of optimism. 
 
As a team we felt we gave Sweden a bit too much respect in the first half, we allowed them to come at us. However we stepped up our game in the second half and really tried to push further up the field. We had some really good link up play when we moved the ball quickly, we were just slow to start the game and you cant afford to do that against a team like Sweden.
 
Overall I felt that four goals was a bit of an unfair reflection of the game. There were times in the game, mainly in the second half, when we had Sweden struggling to get a foot hold in the game but again they punished us when when we switched off and in the end that's the difference.
 
If there is one thing we can learn if we are to catch up ground on the top teams, it is athleticism! We knew before the game that Sweden are a strong, fast, athletic team. We recognise that we are playing a bit of catch up in terms of these areas but in terms of our technical abilities I feel that we matched them.
 
I am most confident that this result won't affect our team's confidence ahead of the qualifiers for the Euros. We knew it was going to be a tough challenge but it's games like Sweden that we relish.
 
Obviously there are things that the coaching staff are going to want to sort out from that game but we aim to take the positives out of the game and bring them into our qualifiers. We can't wait to get back to winning ways, hopefully starting with Israel in our next match.
 
The national team has been improving steadily over the last five years or so - new faces are coming into the team and, with the help of the more experienced players, are settling in very well. We have had some great results along with great performances and we are aiming for nothing less than that play-off spot for Euro 2013.
 
The day belonged to one player in our team though, our goalkeeper Gemma Fay who broke the all time record number of appearances for Scotland. It's an outstanding achievement for Gemma! She does everything she can to help the women's game in this country. She is always focused and aware of what is going on. Never a game goes by when I don't hear her shouting at me! She helps the team in so many ways on and off the field. It's no surprise she has 142 caps and hopefully there are many more to come.
