Scotland Head Coach Anna Signeul took a positive view despite her side's
3-0 defeat to England in the Cyprus Cup.
The result means that Scotland will finish their matches against Russia on Thursday and, speaking to www.scottishfa.co.uk after the game, Anna admitted: "England really did show their class in the opening stages of the first half. They were full of movement and were constantly threatening us with penetrating runs from midfield. It took us a while to get to grips with it the way that they were playing but, the more the half went on, the more we came into it. As the half developed you could see that we were starting to take control.
"However, just when it feels you are coming into the game, we lose a goal on the counter attack. This has been something that has happened to us a few times in this tournament and is something that we have to work on. That being said, England have some really fast, skilful players and they did punish us as we were going forward.
"We carried our performance into the second half and we restricted England to only having two chances. Unfortunately they scored from both!
"As I have said all along, this is a learning process for a new, young Scotland team. We have shown that we can play great football. Sometimes the stuff that we play is a real joy to watch. We just need to believe more in ourselves and our own abilities as players. Ifeoma (Dieke) and Rachel Corsie were absolutely fabulous today and they are an example to the rest of the players.
"This team has a great future, I have no doubt about that. This tournament has given us the chance to work hard and to identify what we need to do in order to be ready for the start of the World Cup campaign.
"We have so much to be positive about."
