Lionesses need not panic – Sarina Wiegman has found another weapon

The Lions can’t hide, Sarina Wiegman admits: The England team headed to the Women’s World Cup with disappointment and disappointment. A goalless draw against Portugal was not something England wanted out and several missed opportunities ruined the atmosphere of anticipation in Milton Keynes.

There will always be an element of fatigue playing here, five weeks after many England players played the last game of the domestic season. It was England’s first game in two months, a match arranged with conditioning as well as anything else, more focused on brain training and pre-World Cup co-ordination rather than result.

If either of those opportunities fall – if Alessia Russo isn’t denied by slip-back Marques Borges after circling the keeper, or if Lucy Bronze’s header goes wide of the post shortly after, then all However, England will have an equalizer. The outlook is much brighter ahead of the World Cup.

But they didn’t – and that meant England unexpectedly went into the World Cup without a win in two matches, both going goalless.

ALL THE TIME! England 0-0 Portugal

Wiegman, told ITV: “We’re disappointed that we didn’t score. I think we’ve seen a lot of things. I think we controlled the ball too slowly in the first half. We did a little bit better in the second half and in the moments we played faster and the tempo was higher. Although we created a lot of chances, the shots didn’t say it all. We should put it at the back of the grid. We all know that.”

ALL THE TIME! England 0-0 Portugal

Disappointment for England.

Not the match they wanted before the World Cup but I’m sure there’s going to be a lot of positives from that.

The Lions created countless chances and their attacking play was excellent at times.

They just can’t take advantage of those opportunities – but it’s better to stay away from that than in Australia!

He will face Down Under this weekend.

England 0-0 Portugal

85 min: The second half was a flurry of attacking opportunities for England… Kelly made space again for a cross on the right: the volley went to Russo but failed to cross in time. The striker can still launch a shot but does not cause difficulties for the opponent’s goalkeeper.

Again, that’s not the only time we say it today.
