A few questions answered - Hope

A few questions answered - Hope  - 20 Jul 2009 - Women's Football NewsHope Powell took a philosophical but largely positive point of view following England's 2-0 defeat at the hands of Iceland in their friendly at Colchester.
 
England went down to a goal in each half after fielding a largely inexperienced team but the game would have given the Head Coach some vital clues ahead of naming her squad for the UEFA Women's Championships in August.
 
"I would have liked to have won, but we played a lot of new faces and it as okay overall," she said. "But the game has answered a few questions for me.
 
"The youngsters gave it a go and tried to play it around but the quality of pass let us down - we were a little impatient and lost our way at times."
 
When asked about the number of places available in the squad for Finland, Hope insisted: "Nobody has been picked yet, I have a blank piece of paper.
 
"In all the years I have been doing the job it is the most competitive squad I have had.
 
"We've now just got to focus on the next game (against Denmark), we will take the positives and go from there."
 
"I thought Iceland gave us a tough game," said Jill Scott, who was named as Player of the Match. "We didn't break them down enough times and gave the ball away too often.
 
"We are a bit short of match fitness but we've been working hard and these two games will help us.
 
"There is always competition for places in the squad but I don't think the players are nervous, we just want to show what we can do."
