Delighted with point - Mo

Delighted with point - Mo - 8 Aug 2014 - Women's Football NewsMo Marley praised her England team after they came from behind to earn a point against South Korea in their opening match of the FIFA Women's Under-20 World Cup. 
 
Sodam Lee fired South Korea ahead with a penalty but Martha Harris scored an equaliser midway through the second half to give her side a share of the spoils.
 
England were in the ascendancy thereafter and might have grabbed the win late on as Beth Mead was foiled by Korean goalkeeper Yukyeong Min when one-on-one and then Nikita Parris thundered a 30-yard effort against the bar in added time.
 
Mo told www.TheFA.com: "We are very happy because we know how difficult it is to get any points at a World Cup. The fact we have come back and got a point reflects the character in the team.
 
"We said to the players that one point was crucial and we might have nicked the win at the end with a bit more luck. Overall we are delighted with a point against top, top opposition.
 
"We know the group has got a lot of character so we just told everybody to settle, there was plenty of time left and that it wasn't just about one game, it was about the whole competition. We had to settle down, do what we needed to do and go back to basics. And once we settled down we grew in confidence."
 
In the build-up to the game, the former Everton boss attempted to dampen expectations surrounding her side's chances. England are the only side to have qualified for this year's Under-19 Euros and Under-20 World Cup, meaning the pool of available players had to be split across two different squads - and 12 of the Young Lions in Canada were eligible for last month's Euro Finals in Norway.
 
Mo said: "We shouldn't expect too much from this group of players. We are almost three different age groups merged into one. The preparation has been intense and we know we are not as prepared as we would like to be because we haven't had that much time together.
 
"But I think that performance, with such a short preparation time, was outstanding. Now, if the players can progress in the next few days at the same rate as they have been doing, I'd be enthused to think how far we can go."
 
England face Mexico in Moncton on Saturday, followed by a final group game against Nigeria in Edmonton next Wednesday.
