Eniola Aluko says England are in confident mood after latest victory over Canada
Eniola Aluko says England are in high spirits following their latest victory over Canada.
The 26-year-old helped Hope Powell’s side achieve their second 1-0 win over the Canadians inside four weeks, courtesy of Ellen White’s added-time header in Rotherham at the weekend.
This result came less than a month after the Three Lions lifted the Cyprus Cup, where they beat John Herdman’s charges by the same scoreline in the Final.
And Aluko, speaking to FATV at the annual Soccerex forum in Manchester, believes England can look forward to this summer’s Euros with an air of conviction.
She said: “It was a good victory.
“It was good for us to show that consistency in success. Obviously we won the Cyprus Cup and beat Canada [in the Final] and we got the same result against them on Sunday.
“It’s positive going into the Euros. I think the team are confident and on a high. We just need to keep going and keep trying to churn out performances and wins.”
The Chelsea forward also reserved a word of praise for the U19s, who qualified for their Euro Finals following a 3-0 win over Norway on Tuesday.
Aluko added: “It’s fantastic for them.
“Mo Marley has always led that team very well and it’s always great to hear the young players coming through are doing well.
“They have got some great players who play in the WSL so we’ll really be getting behind them.”
