Jodie Taylor is also chirpy:
It was a good performance today by the team. Beth played the most perfect ball that landed right on my foot. It was great to get the win today. Patience was key. We said it all week. Through qualifying we’ve had a lot of experience against the block. Today we had the experience, we had the quality, and eventually it paid off.
Phil Neville is cheerful:
Not relief. I thought we were outstanding. I thought the speed of our play in a difficult game, I enjoyed our performance and I’m so proud of them. Four days ago I was slightly critical, but I’m proud of every one of them tonight. It should have been more but I’ve got to say, I stood in the warm-up and watched their keeper and she was unbelievable. She was incredible. The save from Nikita in the second half, her handling, what you’ve seen tonight is an unbelievable goalkeeping performance from the Argentina girl. I’ll tell you what, the players after that game, they’re enjoying it. They’re enjoying it, they’re having the time of their lives and so am I.
