  1. Goodbye

    Not the result England wanted, beaten at home by Canada.

    Have a read of the report

    The Lionesses are back in World Cup warm-up action on Tuesday when they face Spain in Swindon.

    Until then.

  2. 'These are the games you live for'

    England 0-1 Canada

    Canada striker Christine Sinclair tells BBC Sport: "It was a battle, too of the top teams in the world going head-to-head. It was a matter of inches that won it. It was a great game.

    "These are the games you live for, the perfect preparation for the World Cup and two teams that will go pretty far in the tournament.

    "It is an honour to be chasing Abbey Wambach's record down and to get it over with but it is not something we want to be focusing on."

  3. 'A big step for us'

    England 0-1 Canada

    Canada manager Kenneth Heiner-Moller tells BBC Sport: "We put on a very good performance and they are one of the best contestants for the World Cup tournament and we proved we are as well now.

    "We did not want to sit back, but could counter with our fast players up front. We always wanted to take the game and initiative back, even away from home.

    "It will definitely give us momentum, this was a big step for us and by far the best opponent we have played this year. We look good and trained good and won so we leave England happy.

    "Christine Sinclair is a huge person for this side and Canada. She does so much hard work off the ball."

  4. 'Pleased with my players'

    England 0-1 Canada


    England manager Phil Neville tells BBC Sport: "I really enjoyed the match even though we do not like losing. It was a brilliant game of football and the players showed everything I wanted to see.

    "The players showed courage to play and Canada scored form their only shot on goal. We got into some good positions but we need to show a little more composure in the final third.

    "I felt relaxed watching and it was the type of test we needed against an experienced team. We handled most things well.

    "We had little periods of control, especially in the second half but our final ball let us down. We played most of the second half in their half and I saw things I liked and can build on. I am pleased with my players.

    "I will make changes for Tuesday, Lucy Bronze and Steph Houghton are out after suffering knocks. It is a chance for a few players to get some freshness and keep the momentum going forward.

    "This does not stop us from believing or going on the road where we want to."

  6. 'England have to tidy themselves up'

    England 0-1 Canada

    Manchester United manager Casey Stoney on BBC Four: "This is preparation for the World Cup so they would not have wanted to lose. Canada got very strong in the final bit of the match but England have to tidy themselves up on the second phase.

    "England will be very disappointed especially after coming off the back of winning the SheBelieves Cup. They need to analyse this, where did they go wrong and how they can improve it for the Spain game on Tuesday.

    "Phil Neville will want to rotate his squad for the World Cup but needs to work out his best players in their best positions."

  7. 'It did not click'

    BBC Four

    England captain Steph Houghton: "I think it is frustrating from our part. We played well, created chances but could not get it in the back of the net. We could have been more patient and their goal was one of their only shots on target.

    "We are developing as our team but you have to give credit to Canada. We wanted to be ruthless but it is not click."

  8. Praise Sinclair

    Sue Smith

    Former England forward on BBC Four

    A much better performance from England in the second half, they played better and controlled it more but they did not have the finishing touch.

    You have to praise Christine Sinclair, what a player for so, so long - a real poacher but England will be disappointed by conceding.
