Peace Cup plans come to fruition
 Women's Football News 25 Oct 2010
 
Peace Cup plans come to fruition - 25 Oct 2010 - Women's Football NewsAfter returning home unbeaten from South Korea, Hope Powell expressed pleasure at her side's maiden Peace Cup campaign.
 
England drew 0-0 with both South Korea and New Zealand in the group stage and only missed out on a place in the Final on the drawing of lots. However, as their first piece of preparation for next summer's World Cup, the Head Coach said results weren't the most important aspect of the exercise.
 
"Obviously, you want to win every game you play, but that wasn't the be-all-and-end-all of this trip," she explained.
 
"The main thing was to look at the squad we've got to work with. We've still got a couple of players missing, there are a couple of Under-20s that are doing well at the moment and competition for places is fierce. We've had a long World Cup qualifying campaign where some players didn't play a lot, so it was important to give them game-time.
 
"Bass [Laura Bassett] and Anita hadn't been in the frame for a while so it was good to see them again and Lindsay hasn't started regularly lately either, so it was good to see her, too. I've now had an opportunity to look at a lot of players in a different environment and, overall, it has been a really useful trip.
 
"South Korea and New Zealand were both very different in terms of playing styles; Korea were more comfortable in possession whereas New Zealand's strengths lie in their physicality and work rate and that is one of the reasons why I wanted to come here; to experience different styles of play."
