England captain Faye White says she is hoping the Three Lions can pick up three crucial points at Doncaster next Thursday, but admitted that it's also important that they showcase women's football.



White scored a rare goal for England as they were victorious away to Northern Ireland last month, but now she is focused on winning the final home game of the qualification campaign and edging the side closer to Euro 2009.

White told TheFA.com: "Whenever we play at home it is about more than just picking up three points, it's always about showcasing the game and trying to take it forward.

"We have to play for the fans and let them see the level of performances that we are capable of.

"After the World Cup people's expectations are different, and we have to live with that. When you play on the big stage and the game is on television, you want to put in a performance that people will remember - and hopefully we can do that."

While White was pleased to score her fifth international goal at Mourneview Park, she says it means far more to her to get a clean sheet than to get on the scoresheet.

"It was pleasing to score a goal in Lurgan. As a defender you don't get that many chances to score - it's more about keeping them out," White explained.

"I could have had more than one on the night, but that's not my main aim. As long as the ball goes in the back of the net I don't mind who scores.

"It's probably more pleasing that we haven't conceded a goal in qualifying yet. I think that when we come up against the stronger teams, that's when we step up to the plate.

"We defend well and we create a number of chances in most games. It's now about working on putting the ball in the back of the net when the chances come our way.
