We can be very pleased with the result and performance from our 2-0 victory over Cameroon in our friendly match on Sunday.
Cameroon made the match very difficult for us as they didn't give us time on the ball and forced us into losing possession more than we would have liked. However with a much changed team and a few of our regular players missing, I thought it was a great result for us as a team.
The game showed that we have talented players coming through and everyone in the team showed that they are more than capable of playing at this level.
The goal came at the right time for us, because Cameroon started the game on the front foot and we struggled a bit to settle and play our own game. However as the first half wore on we started to take a bit of control in the game and put Cameroon under some pressure on the edge of their own box and that paid off.
We worked the ball well on the edge of their box and when the final pass was made to try and split the defence, the Cameroon defender opened up her body and placed the ball beautifully past her own goalkeeper. Any striker would be proud of a finish like that!
Jo Love's goal in the second half was a fantastic strike. It's not the first time she has scored a goal like that and I am sure it won't be the last. Not only did the goal help seal the win for us but it rounded off her game perfectly. She played well throughout the game and to be standing in as captain, I'm sure made it all the more memorable for Jo.
Eilish McSorley and Lana Clelland both had great debuts. Eilish stepped into centre half and never looked out of place while Lana came on in the second half and showed great skill when on the ball and a lot of hard work when we were out of possession. I know that both girls were nervous before the game but I thought they dealt with that well and put in two great performances. I'm sure it's the first of many caps for them both.
From a personal point of view, playing for my country in my home town (Aberdeen) in front of a lot of friends and family was an amazing experience and I was pleased that we got a win on home soil as well to round of the day. There was a fantastic crowd supporting both teams, with quite a lot of Cameroonians singing for their team all throughout the game. This made for a great atmosphere and not even the thunder and lightning spoiled the day. I hope that in the not too distant future I can experience playing in Aberdeen again.
