"Against Scotland I was proud of the girls. They played good football, timed the transitions well and kept a good pace to our passing game. Against Spain we couldn't put together good combinations, kept losing the ball and never really threatened them. But a lot of credit goes to the Spanish team. It was a sad ending to my Under-19 career because, like the players, I believed we could reach the final and even be champions."
