Beth Mead reflected on her brilliant goal for England Under-20s against Mexico but admitted that she was disappointed with the 1-1 result.
The Sunderland striker gave England a first half lead through a stunning 25-yard strike but Mexico came back strongly after the break to earn themselves a draw and keep Group C wide open going into the last round of matches.
"Without a doubt it's the best goal I've ever scored," Beth told www.TheFA.com. "I saw the keeper was off her line a little bit and I managed to catch it well enough. I guess it was just striker's instinct.
"My phone has gone in to meltdown. It's mental. I scored two goals in Finland and my phone went mad then, but it's nothing like this. It's gone viral.
"We knew they [Mexico] would have to come at us in the second half and we didn't adapt well enough to how high they were pressing up the pitch. We'll have to improve on that aspect of our game.
"We didn't create loads of clear cut chances in the first half but we still need to be more clinical. Some of that is down to decision making as well, maybe seeing if someone is in a better position or vice versa. We'd obviously have liked to have got the three points but it's another learning curve for us."
Now England will need to beat group leaders Nigeria in order to progress to the quarter finals and Beth admitted that some improvement will be needed. "It's a must-win game now," she said. "We know what we've got to do.
"We're not in as comfortable a position as we'd like to be but it's still in our hands and that's the main thing.
"We just need to improve on little things. We want to win the next game, qualify for the quarters and move on."
