    There are small margins. Austria could have had a penalty on another day and that's always the risk when you're only winning by one goal: it's just one situation away from being a different story.

    Nathan: I thought Millie Bright was absolute class & Mary Earps too with some crucial stops towards the end. But, most spiriting was seeing so many girls in the stands having the time of their lives & cheering on their heroes. Come on England! #Lionesses

    Former England midfielder on BBC One

    England need to stop talking about football for maybe one day. They need to get their heads back into the game before they play against Norway.

  6. 'They were sloppy in some areas'

    FT: England 1-0 Austria

    Alex Scott

    Former England and Arsenal defender on BBC One

    What I like about Sarina is that she knows, straight away about this England team, that there's more to come. They were sloppy in some areas and sometimes you need to put your foot on the ball, connect a pass and regain the momentum.

  7. 'She wants players to trust her'

    FT: England 1-0 Austria

    Jonas Eidevall

    Arsenal manager on BBC One

    [Wiegman] wants a brave team; she wants brave players who continue to trust her and the process and continue to play. I hope England learn from that.

    Austria had a few half-chances and England needed Mary Earps at certain moments because Austria got on top.

  9. 'They're on their way'

    FT: England 1-0 Austria

    Credit where it's due: England put the ball in the net and took the points home. They're on their way and let's hope there are a lot of congratulations going on, there's a lot of positive reinforcement for a job well done.

    A lot of the basics could have been better in terms of pass selection and handling those intricate moments when the momentum starts to shift. Ultimately, Sarina Wiegman will be happy to come out on the big occasion with a win.

  10. 'The best is yet to come'

    FT: England 1-0 Austria

    England sub Chloe Kelly to BBC Sport: "Great atmosphere. The fans were brilliant the whole game. To come away with a win is even better.

    "It was very tough. They are a tough opponent. Every game will be a different task for us.

    "Amazing. I can’t put into words what it means to be here. It was amazing. I’m excited for the rest of the tournament.

    "Coming into the first game we knew it would be difficult to settle into the tournament. To come away with a 1-0 win is very good.

    "It’s brilliant. We’ve stuck together. It’s been a good ride so far. We’ll rest and get going again.

    "I'm very hungry. Everyone in the squad is. The depth in our squad is brilliant. It’ll be very good come the end of the tournament.

    "To come away with three points and get ahead in the group is brilliant. The best is yet to come. We’re still building and we’re still fresh."

  11. 'England will go up a gear'

    FT: England 1-0 Austria

    Anita Asante

    Former England defender on BBC One

    There's lots of anticipation going into the tournament. It's about getting the job done and that's what they did. You want to feel the energy in your body and get it out your system.

    This is tournament football, you don't want to see them peaking too soon. They will go up a gear.

    You want to get on the pitch and deliver. That's where the nerves come and you want to use that. Now they've got that out of their system, you'll see England more relaxed now.

    FT: England 1-0 Austria

    Staying consistent, being an eight [out of 10] all the time - not being a nine and then being a four - is what makes the difference at international level for these players.

    FT: England 1-0 Austria

    Fara Williams

    Former England midfielder on BBC One

    Millie Bright was phenomenal and found the diagonal passes. Millie could perform at left centre-back and switch with Leah Williamson. I feel like she's better positioned to open up and play the diagonals.

  14. 'It was pretty special'

    FT: England 1-0 Austria

    FT: England 1-0 Austria

    England captain Leah Williamson to BBC Two: "What an occasion. The fans came out. We connected well. It was a good start to the tournament. Three points is all I care about.

    "It was pretty special. I had no idea what to expect. We embraced it really well. I kept my eyes closed during the national anthem. If I’d looked at mum I’d have started crying, if I got too involved. I kept it at bay.

    "It’s loud. Communication becomes harder. At times it gets in the way but I’d take that any day. There was a great atmosphere. You don’t have to be at your best in the first game. You can grow. Points on the board are the most important thing.

    "We have things to work on which gives you something to strive for.

    "The way we’ve been playing, we’ve put in some really good performances. We did well with the pressure and everything around it.

    "100% [we should have scored more]. This England team has so much talent. That's something to work on in next game. We started settling into it. We’ve dealt with pressure and expectation and it’s over now. It's a good start."
