Sarina Wiegman admitted England need to do better after suffering a goalless draw with the Czech Republic at the Amex.
The Lionesses were on a 15-game winning streak after beating the United States 2-1 on Friday but were unable to extend their winning streak against a side ranked No. 28 in the world.
However, they extended their unbeaten streak to 24 games, but were unable to prevail in front of 21,222 spectators, despite scoring twice.
The manager admitted she was disappointed but said her side had learned from the stalemate.
“We are absolutely disappointed because we think we could have won. We knew Czech was a very tough opponent, very physical and direct,” said Wiegman.
“I think we just had to do it a little bit better, we had a couple of chances.
“In the first half we hit the post, in the second half we had three chances to score and we didn’t.
“A very good learning moment for us.”
It was a game of milestones and first appearances with Lucy Bronze winning her 100th cap for England while Esme Morgan made her debut and Lauren James her first starting XI.
Wiegman believes the Czech Republic were as challenging as they expected, adding: “They were (difficult to play) because of course we saw them against the USA.
“They tied the Netherlands twice in the qualifying rounds. We saw how strong they were, how physical they were, but I was hoping we would have broken through their defenses quicker.”
