Jasmin Dutton was disappointed but not downhearted following Wales' 4-0 defeat by Sweden in their World Cup qualifying group match.
The 17-year-old full back, playing only her second competitive international, gave a good account of herself in the biggest match of her life so far and she told Women's Soccer Scene afterwards: "We held the fourth ranked team in the world for 70 minutes and that was good for us.
"4-0 wasn't a fair score and it was just a bit of bad luck for some of the goals.
"Two of the goals were very scrambly and could have gone either way we didn't deserve that. The conditions and their quality told but we carried on going all the way through the game and the players deserve credit for it.
"We did have some good chances in the first half but we held them well and that shows well on the whole team."
Playing against renowned and experienced international players was a huge difference for Jasmin from her club football for Tranmere Rovers in the Northern Combination. However she has taken it in her stride and remained modest about her rapid progress. "It's what you've got to do to step up to in international football and I'm happy to do that," she replied.
"I'm enjoying every single minute of it - at 17, to go into the senior team and start, you can't ask for more really. I'll keep on working hard and hopefully things will keep going my way."
