England defeated the United States 2-1 on Saturday in London, although the score does not do justice to the dominating performance put forth by England. As I argued yesterday, the United States could learn from England’s superior possession-oriented game. Here are what some English media (and a few Americans) think the morning after the game:
- BBC: England Head Coach Hope Powell: “That was a very professional performance and a big victory for us.”
- The Guardian: “England confirmed their Women’s World Cup credentials”
- The AP: U.S. forward Abby Wambach: “Right now, we’re working with different ways of playing, with different people.”
- TheFA.com: Historic win for England
- All White Kit: Jenna Pel’s assessment of the game
- Philly Soccer News: HAIL, BRITTANIA
- World Soccer Reader: Three Lionesses Destroy 11 Americans
