Arsenal midfielder Jordan Nobbs has spoken about her memories of England’s embarrassment at Euro 2013.
The Lionesses only managed to scrape one point from their three group stage matches four years ago, and Nobbs told Press Association Sport that they’d learned a lot of lessons from the experience and hope to show that in the 2017 European Championships.
“Maybe it was just one of those tournaments, but we’re far away from that tournament now, in terms of talents, strengths and beliefs as a squad. Hopefully us performing this summer will definitely be good for the long run with the growth of women’s football,” said the midfielder.
England had a much stronger World Cup, finishing third, above all the other European teams at the tournament. And ahead of their opening game of the Euros against Scotland, Nobbs wants the Lionesses to prove their worth again.
“With it being so local as well, for Scotland and England fans to come over and watch, I think it will be a great game,” Nobbs said. “We’re excited. I think both teams know what a big game that is, and with us knowing some of their girls and them knowing us.”
