England captain Casey Stoney says the recent World Cup qualifying victories have helped put a disappointing summer behind them.
Under Brent Hills’s temporary stewardship, the Three Lions defeated Belarus 6-0 in Bournemouth before easing to an 8-0 win over Turkey at Portsmouth’s Fratton Park.
England failed to get out of the group at Euro 2013, but Stoney believes her side have now turned the corner.
She told BBC Sport: “Our victories over Belarus and Turkey put the Euro nightmare well behind us and while were expected to win both games, I was pleased we didn't drop our standards because of that.
“Scoring 14 goals and conceding none was fantastic, and you could tell that the girls were bursting to make an impression after Sweden and in front of Brent.
“Brent was very relaxed, and enjoyed himself because being the manager is something he has always wanted to do.”
With The FA set to appoint a new permanent Head Coach to replace Hope Powell, Stoney says she is concerned for her place in the squad, having been a regular over the last 13 years – in which time she has earned 115 caps.
She added: “Picking the new manager is not something the players can control.
“All I will say is that the new manager should be the best person for the job, male or female. I'm excited about a new coach but also anxious because I don't know where my future lies with England.
“The new boss might have difference ideas and although I've been picked for England over the last 13 years, who's to say the new person will think the same?”
England are next in action on Saturday 26 October, the day of The FA’s 150th anniversary, when they take on Wales at The Den in their third World Cup qualifier.
The next World Cup will be staged in Canada in 2015.
