Absolutely delighted - Anna

Absolutely delighted - Anna - 6 Mar 2011 - Women's Football NewsScotland coach Anna Signeul paid tribute to her side following their 2-0 victory over England in the Cyprus Women's Cup.
Goals from Kim Little and Jennifer Beattie earned them their first win against England in more than 30 years and Anna admitted: "I'm absolutely delighted with the result. We played well against Canada in the first game but the result didn't go our way. We built on that performance and put on a really impressive display today.
"We had some good chances against Canada early on and didn't take them, so I was pleased that we got goals early in both halves.
"In terms of attack we had a game plan and stuck to it. I thought Jennifer and Kim were brilliant up top. They found each other so well and Jennifer is such a good target player for us.
"Hayley Lauder kept the ball very well in midfield, the whole midfield played well in fact, and in defence we were impressive again. Shannon's [Lynn] save at the end of the first half was fantastic and was a decisive moment in the game.
"Some people said after the first game that Canada didn't play well, but maybe they underestimated us. You have to be a good side to get a result like that against England.
"They [England] had a strong side out there with big players like Jill Scott and Eniola Aluko, who scored a lot of goals in the Euros. There was no Kelly Smith, but we didn't have our top scorer Julie Fleeting either. We got this result because of the way we played against a top side."
A disappointed Hope Powell meanwhile has urged her players to improve their approach to matches in which they start as favourites. "Some of our players have to look at their performance," she said. "This game answered a few questions for me, both positively and negatively.
"Now we need to look at our approach to games like this - games we are expected to win. We need to manage them better because our performance wasn't good enough.
"We made some changes to the team [that beat Italy] but we were still expected to beat them and the players that played will be disappointed.
"You have to give Scotland credit, they played well. They defended very well and made it difficult. They've got some really good youngsters coming through and it was a good test for us."
