Sarina Wiegman: ‘England will learn from Canada draw’
England head coach Sarina Wiegman has said that England’s 1-1 draw with Canada will be good preparation ahead of the Women’s Euros this summer.
Millie Bright gave the Lionesses a first-half lead with a superb volley, but the Olympic champions hit back through Manchester City forward Janine Beckie to earn a point in their opening Arnold Clark Cup match.
“I think we played a very good first half. We dominated and created chances but unfortunately only scored one,” Wiegman told reporters.
“We were a little sloppy at some points, we tried to be tighter in the second half but we had more trouble doing it. It got more of a transition game and it was hard to control the game.
“This was a game that we wanted. Now you saw them under the highest pressures in possession and out of it.
“It is a great lesson and we need this lesson. It is a totally different game to ones we’ve had. We will get games like this at the Euros so we need them to learn from. It gives us so much information and things to discuss.”
England are yet to lose in their seven games under Wiegman. They face Spain and Germany on Sunday and Wednesday
