Lucy Bronze admits the Lioness can give more
England defender Lucy Bronze admitted that the Lioness are not happy with their world cup performances so far but vowed they will come good against Colombia.
Aside demolishing China by 6 goals to 1, the Lioness has struggled to repeat the same performances in their followed up matches.
The European champions also exited the competition as they were held to a one-all draw by the Super Falcons of Nigeria.
“We can give more,” vowed Lucy Bronze. “We’re a fantastic team with highly-talented players, but the important thing is we got through to the next round.
“There’s no point in playing our best performances in the first games, we might as well save them for the quarter-finals or further than that.
“We’ve built on every game, we’ve taken something from every game, whether that was the Haiti game that was physical, the Denmark game when we lost our key player in Keira [Walsh], the China game we changed the formation completely, [Monday] we had a red card.
“Everything that has been thrown at us, we’ve dealt with and moved forward.
“I don’t see many other teams who’ve had that adversity and if they had, I don’t think they’ve managed to overcome the way we have. At the same time, we are not happy with our performances.”
