"A win is the aim"
Jill Scott said her England team-mates are not getting carried away with the hype ahead of their Euro 2017 opener against neighbours Scotland.
The Lionesses take on Anna Signeul’s side in their opening Group D match on Wednesday evening.
England have won 21 of the 24 matches between the two sides but haven’t beaten Scotland in the last two attempts.
Scott said: “We all know how much press and publicity any England v Scotland game gets.
“There is going to be a massive build-up to it, especially because it’s our first match.
“We just have to be careful that we don’t play the occasion. We have to stick to the game plan.
“We’ve got a lot of experienced players so we’ll just keep our heads down and keep training well.
“The group won’t just come down to this one game but I always think it’s important to at least get one point on the board in your opening game.
“A win is the aim – and then we’ll go from there.”
After Scotland, England face Spain on Sunday 23 July and then Portugal next Thursday.
