England Women’s boss Phil Neville hails ‘outstanding’ performances

9 October 2019

England boss Phil Neville has described his side’s last two performances as “outstanding” following their 1-0 friendly win in Portugal.

The Lionesses clinched a scrappy victory in Lisbon to ease the pressure on Neville, but Beth Mead’s late winner was gifted by a blunder from Portugal goalkeeper Patricia Morais.

England lost to the USA in the World Cup finals last summer and since their third-place play-off defeat to Sweden they have drawn in Belgium and been beaten by Norway and Brazil, who won 2-0 at the Riverside on Saturday.
