Jordan Nobbs YOUR Top Player v Germany

We resurrected the #SKFancard thanks to @toroprotape for the Germany game at the #SheBelieves Cup and this is what you said...

 

Here are the results of the SK Jury!

Jordan Nobbs received 30% of your votes as the top player, while Lucy Bronze received 24%. Whilst in terms of total points (you vote for your top three: 1,2,3), it was Nobbs, Bronze and then Karen Carney. 

We'd have to agree with you. Jordan and Lucy were England's most consistent/stand out performers for England during a tournament in which the team endured some ups and downs but competed until the very last, with another third placed finish. But remember the late goal v France and Germany only won by one (equally that was England v USA) - it's those fine margins, folks.

As well as asking for your player votes on our @torotapepro Fan Card, we also asked you for your views on the match. Here's some of them (you're a demanding crowd!) and we think most - including the England camp - will agree with most of the comments made:

- England are playing much better, the team is tighter and passing more precise.  Great effort.

- Improved towards the end but lacked up front power throughout. A way to go yet before Euros. 

- good performance but need to take chances

- Played some good football, just couldn't get the ball in the net. Lionesses played with so much 

- Creditable but lacked in the final third.

- Pretty solid performance all round lots of positives to take back ready for the Euros. 

- Getting there... kind of

- A tough battle but we didn't finish or chances in front of goal, some good football on display though

- Can't be faulted on effort but lacked firepower

- Need to be more clinical

- unlucky in the 2nd half, need to take the chances they have.

- Battled on,  Losing focus at times.  All in all played well against Germany 

- Good attacking, some good saves, Great midfield amazing  

- Good first half but that Germany goal was a sucker punch and couldn't take their chances.

- Battled well, defence could have played better, great mild fielders, strong going forward

- Good start to first half but lacked finishes needed. Second half , creative play and great defending

- Great play in parts. Need to be more ruthless in front of goal. Need to brush up on finishing touch

- It was all Jordan Nobbs

- Tired, but professional. Unlucky in front of goal but full of passion. 

- Good performance however lacking quality in final third

- One of the best England performances I've seen in a while, kept fighting until the end

- Frustrating after watching beating the USA!

Neither are workable or likely at present but hypothetically, would you prefer a more strict salary cap in the FA WSL OR should centrally contracted England players (that receive salaries from The FA) be allocated more evenly around WSL1 clubs?
