Ellen White savoured her first goal for England but was keeping her feet firmly on the ground following the 3-0 win against Austria in their World Cup qualifier.
"It's amazing to get a debut and a goal, pretty overwhelming really," she said. "Lianne (Sanderson) played a brilliant ball through, I saw the keeper come and just dinked it - it just seemed to take ages to go over the line but it eventually did.
"I'm really pleased but just glad to get the three points. Playing at this level is another step up from the Under-23s, it's a lot faster but I really enjoyed it."
Eniola Aluko admitted that the performance had got better as the game went on. "We knew it would be difficult to break them down," she revealed. "Overall, the second half was better for us."
Eni scored England's second goal with a clever flick from Lianne Sanderson's chipped pass and she was delighted with her tenth strike for her country. "I'm very pleased with the finish," she smiled. "Lianne chipped a great ball into the box, I saw the goalkeeper out of the corner of my eye and just touched it past her."
