Jordan Nobbs has ruled out complacency ahead of England’s World Cup qualifying clash with Wales on Saturday.
The midfielder helped our Women’s team romp to victory in their opening two qualifiers in September, as they defeated Belarus 6-0
and then eased to an 8-0 win over Turkey
five days later.
They now entertain the Dragons at The Den aiming to make it three wins from three, but Nobbs explains that England won’t be taking their Home Nations rivals lightly.
She said: “To be a part of a World Cup would be one of the best things in your career and it is something you always want to do.
“We know we can't take for granted any team we play in the qualifiers.
"Wales pose a tougher proposition. Obviously we play week in, week out against some of their players and there is more of a physical contest which we know about.
"We will still have the same preparation and will hopefully get the three points we need."
The Arsenal youngster put in two impressive performances from the centre of midfield last month and she had a big part to play in three of her side’s first four goals against Belarus.
However, Nobbs, a European Championship winner at U19 level in 2009
, only made her senior team debut in March this year
and believes she has got a long way to go to establish herself in the starting eleven.
The 20-year-old added: “I'm definitely privileged that I got two 90 minutes in the first two games and hopefully I proved myself and I can get some more game time.
“But I will take each game as it comes. I'm still training the same and hopefully I can show more of what I can do. I've known Brent [Hills, Interim Head Coach] for a long time and he has shown what he can do in the last few games.
“He is aware that when I came in I always had the same mindset. I have enjoyed working with both Hope [Powell] and Brent. I don't mind who is coaching me, I want to be out there on the pitch."
