We deserved a draw - Sampson
 Women's Football News 15 Feb 2015
We deserved a draw - Sampson - 15 Feb 2015 - Women's Football NewsEngland head coach Mark Sampson insisted that his side deserved at least a draw from their 1-0 defeat to the USA at Milton Keynes. 
England went down to a first half header from Alex Morgan and Jodie Taylor had a goal wrongly disallowed for offside in the second half but Sampson took a positive outlook after the game.
"First and foremost, I'm disappointed to lose the game," he said. "I asked a lot of the players in terms of effort but they are not ready to play a game of this intensity at this time of the year.
"But I thought we deserved at least a draw, especially bearing in mind we scored a perfectly good goal. It was good centre forward play, Jodie [Taylor] did exactly what she needed to do by following in and it was disappointing it was ruled out."
England approached the game with a tighter formation, looking to hit on the counter attack and he admitted he was pleased with the outcome, whilst also praising his strikers.
"In terms of open play, we weren't cut open at all," he said. "The Americans got too many balls into the box for our liking but we defended those crosses admirably in the main. I thought that the two centre backs stepped up to the plate today.
"I'm really pleased with both strikers - Fran Kirby played an unselfish role and her commitment to it was really good."
Sampson was also happy with the team's improvements after the 3-0 defeat to Germany last time around. "It's about learning and the team getting better," he said. "In areas we netted to better, we were. The players had dusted themselves down after the Germany game and they were much better tonight - I'm very pleased with the team's progress."
