Jill Scott wants sharper Everton performances

Everton Ladies midfielder Jill Scott wants her team to improve their displays in the Women's Super League.

The Blues are fourth in the WSL and are at home to Chelsea on Sunday.

"We feel like at times we've played well enough to get a result but that's football, sometimes it doesn't happen," Scott told BBC Radio Merseyside.

"Hopefully we can go into the second half of the season sharper and passing the ball a bit better, then hopefully we can get more wins under our belt."

Scott was a member of the England squad that reached the quarter-finals of the World Cup in Germany this summer.

The former Sunderland midfielder scored two important goals during the competition, one in a 2-1 victory over New Zealand and another in the 1-1 draw with France in the quarter-finals, which the French won 4-3 on penalties.

Her impressive displays were rewarded with being named in the Fifa All-Star squad of the tournamentexternal-link along with England team-mate Alex Scott.

"I'm delighted, it's a big achievement for me and I'm really pleased to get in that," said Scott.

"It was difficult coming back from the World Cup and we were all gutted we didn't progress further than the quarter-finals.

"But as time goes on we'll reflect and take from it what you need in terms of becoming a better player.

"All I aim to do is become a better player and try and take some form into the Everton games, which is the focus now."
