Alex Scott takes on the role of interviewer for in La Manga

It was a case of double vision for England Women in La Manga following Friday’s draw with Norway, as Alex Scott found herself interviewing herself!

The Arsenal defender played her part in new Head Coach Mark Sampson’s first game in charge, which saw the Lionesses come close to securing a memorable victory over the Euro runners-up.

A late equaliser denied England the victory as the game ended 1-1, but intrepid interviewer Scott took plenty of positives from the game and the whole week in La Manga when taking over microphone duties from regular reporter Glenn Lavery.

"It’s been really great, really positive, there's a buzz in training, everyone's smiling and it's like being on trial again,” she told herself, for cameras.

"Everyone wants to show what they can do and he's [Sampson] getting his plans in going forward.

"It's been a great week, really competitive in training but with that element of fun around the camp too.”

After taking a squad of 30 players to Spain for this week’s training camp, Sampson is assessing all of his options before the World Cup qualifying campaign gets back underway later this year.

Next up for England is the annual Cyprus Cup competition in March, where Sampson will resume his work with the squad, who are already well-drilled in what he wants from his players.

"He's put his philosophies in place about how he wants us to play, with that energy, that tempo and having no fear in that England shirt,” added Scott.

"He's building the foundations and we know as players what he wants going forward.”
