Although England's forwards received the plaudits as they qualified for the Final of the UEFA European Women's U19 Championship with a comfortable 3-0 dismissal of Switzerland, two-goal Toni Duggan was quick to praise the efforts of the England backline, who she called "amazing".
In addition to her semi-final brace, Duggan also set-up Isobel Christiansen for her goal just before half time to book England's place in the Women's U19 Final for the second time in three years.
"I was made up as that's my job as a striker," Duggan said of her two-goal haul, "but really I've got to congratulate the whole team because defensively we were superb.
"We set out to keep them quiet as we knew how strong they were up front. The defence was amazing."
Duggan is managed by Mo Marley at both club (Everton) and international level and was a key member of Marley's squad that reached the quarter-final of the U20 World Cup in Chile last year, scoring the late, late equaliser against New Zealand that booked England a last-eight berth.
Although Marley's side were beaten 3-0 by USA, Duggan says she will use that defeat as motivation to succeed in Saturday's European Final.
"The setback in the quarter-finals has made us more determined here. We felt we had to come and make our mark and now we have to be even stronger than ever."
Sweden await in the Final and the two nations have already met in the group stage. The game finishing 3-0 to Marley's charges, with Duggan again on the scoresheet.
The Final will be broadcast live on British Eurosport from 3.45pm BST
