Bronze says England not happy with their performances at World Cup

England defender Lucy Bronze has acknowledged that the Women’s World Cup has not seen the best of her team and they need to improve in their upcoming quarter-final match against Colombia. Despite being ranked fourth, the Lionesses faced a tough challenge from Nigeria in the round-of-16, narrowly winning in a penalty shootout. Bronze expressed confidence in the team’s abilities, stating that they have highly talented players and can give more in their performances. She emphasized the importance of saving their best performances for the later stages of the tournament.

However, England will be without their leading scorer, Lauren James, in the knockout game due to a red card she received for a stamp on Nigeria’s Michelle Alozie. James issued an apology and may face further disciplinary action pending a FIFA review. Despite this setback, Bronze highlighted the team’s resilience and ability to secure wins, which has been crucial in a tournament where many top teams have been eliminated. She emphasized that England knows what it takes to win and has demonstrated their determination.

With the elimination of strong teams like the United States, Canada, Germany, and Brazil, England is considered one of the favorites to win the tournament. Coach Sarina Wiegman expressed the challenges faced by the team in the Nigeria game, describing it as the most problematic game or tournament she has experienced. The team also had to cope with the absence of midfielder Keira Walsh due to injury, although she returned to play against Nigeria. Bronze praised the squad’s ability to learn and grow from each game, highlighting the physicality of the Haiti game, the loss of a key player in the Denmark game, the formation change in the China game, and the red card they faced. She commended the team’s ability to overcome adversity and acknowledged that they are not satisfied with their performances.

In conclusion, Lucy Bronze and the England team recognize the need for improvement in the Women’s World Cup. Despite their challenges, they remain confident in their abilities and resilience. They aim to save their best performances for the later stages of the tournament and continue to overcome adversity. As one of the favorites, England is determined to make their mark in the competition.
