England coach Steve Cooper

Coach: Steve Cooper
10/12/79
"The defeat against Spain was a tough one to take. We experienced the fine margins of tournament football. We could have scored three as we had good chances. We built from the back and I haven't got any complaints with the players or their attitude. Against Sweden we gave two soft goals away with mistakes that shouldn’t happen at this level and we paid the price. It's part of the learning process and the young players' journey, but it was hard to take."
