England captain Steph Houghton says the atmosphere around their match against Russia was "emotional and distracting".
The Lionesses beat Russia 6-0 just six days before manager Mark Sampson was sacked by the Football Association.
They next face France in a friendly on Friday, with Mo Marley - who Houghton has worked with since the age of 14 - now in charge.
