    Football

    Steph Houghton makes a header against France

    England women ensured third place at the SheBelieves Cup with a goalless draw against France on Wednesday. Despite failing to win in the event, England captain Steph Houghton was upbeat when she spoke to BBC Sport.

    "We're pleased with how we've progressed," she said. "With each game we got better and better. The results didn’t come but the performances were on the up.

    "We've seen a different England in terms of getting the ball down and playing. We're happy and excited at the prospect of getting better over the next few months.

    "There's been a change in mentality. Previously, when we’ve played against the likes of Germany, USA and France, we have been on the back foot. But we wanted to take the game to them and have frightened them at times. We are pressing from the front, holding a high line and causing teams problems."
