Greater experience won in the end... - 21 Sep 2012 - Women's Football NewsIt was a huge shame that we could not get the result we so badly wanted against Scotland but maybe we will be able to put things in perspective once our disappointment subsides. 
When the draw was originally made, and we discovered what a tough group we had been drawn into, we would probably have taken a third place at that time but that was no consolation immediately after our 2-1 defeat, particularly after we had thrown everything we had at Scotland in the last ten minutes.
We had a soft first ten or fifteen minutes after the match began but then we started to come into the game and control it a bit more. It's very disappointing to have lost but I think we lacked too much in the final third to get the result on the night.
Scotland knew exactly what they had to do when they came here and there were some very good performances from them. I thought that Jennifer Beattie was brilliant for them up front and Kim Little is obviously Kim Little, so I think their greater experience was the winner in the end.
However things really looked like going our way when Helen Lander gave us the lead just before half time. It was a good goal, great work from Gwen Harries initially and a great finish from Helen which is what she does. But we just didn't create enough overall which is disappointing from us because that is something that we can do and are capable of.
You can never fault the effort of the players - that is something that we have in abundance and it often gives us a bit of an extra edge over other teams. But sometimes you need a little more than that and I think that's what we lacked against Scotland.
After getting to so close to challenging for a play-off place, the result was a huge blow to take but I think when the dust settles and a bit of time passes, we'll realise just how far we've come in a relatively short space of time. It's a positive thing and not the end of something, but the beginning. We didn't feel like that straight after the game though, just a lot of disappointment and I think it's okay for us to feel that way.
Without a shadow of doubt, there is much for us to look forward to in the future if we keep progressing at the rate we have done over the last two years.
Leading the team out against Scotland, in a match like that, was a feeling that I am probably never going to forget - I was really proud. I just can't wait to keep doing it in future, I am so looking forward to that.
