"The journey for us as a group was fantastic. It had been four years since we last qualified and a Scottish girls' team had never won a game at European championship finals before, so the girls created history. We take some pride in that. We didn't feel great about losing our last game so heavily, but there was fantastic commitment and team spirit and, given time, I'm sure the experience of being there and playing against top-class opposition will stand them in good stead for the future."
