Hope proud of achievement

Hope proud of achievement - 27 Sep 2007 - Women's Football NewsDespite admitting to being disappointed at exiting the World Cup at the quarter final stage, England Head Coach Hope Powell revealed her pride at what the Three Lions achieved in China and the style with which they played. 
 
It took almost an hour for the world number one side, USA, to break down England's resistance in Tianjin, but once it was broken England could not recover and were eliminated by three quick goals.
 
But Hope stayed positive when looking back on England's first World Cup in 12 years. "I'm proud of what we achieved," she revealed. "We have to respect that America are very clinical in front of goal but we certainly matched them and we played some attractive football. In the end we didn't show enough composure in front of goal. We did get at them at certain times but those minutes were crucial.
 
"There were some goalkeeping errors that were costly but we truly believed we could come here and do a job."
 
With thrilling performances against Japan and Argentina, and a battling display filled with courage and application against the reigning champions Germany, England earned rave reviews and new supporters along the way in their World Cup journey. Now Hope is hoping the experience can boost the development of her players even more.
 
"We've put on a good display throughout the tournament and we'll learn a lot from it," she said. "We've competed well, we've played attractive football and we matched America at times.
 
"We certainly deserved to come this far and overall I feel that we've done well at the tournament. We'll build on our performances here, the experience will hold us in good stead and hopefully we'll be back in four years."
