Mark Sampson: ‘England can be best in the world’
Manager Mark Sampson has said that England can become the best team in the world.
The Lionesses defeated Scotland 6-0 in their opening match of the Women’s Euro 2017, after a Jodie Taylor hat-trick and goals from Ellen White, Jordan Nobbs and Toni Duggan.
“This team is a work in progress – we’re not the finished product yet,” Sampson told reporters.
“The exciting part for me is how good we can become over the next five matches. These players enjoy the pressure, they thrive in it and this was the stage they were born to be at.
“With every good performance they put in, it excites me more for how far they can go. We could be the best team in the world.”
England continue their Euro 2017 campaign against Spain on Sunday.
