Powell believes Scotland will prove to be a bigger test than Russia
England coach Hope Powell was pleased yet puzzled by her side's 6-0 friendly defeat of Russia on Thursday.
She wondered: "Were we that good or were they poor?
"I'll have to look at the game again on video but credit to the girls for a good all-round performance - and you have to be pleased with six goals.
"We played some decent stuff, there were goals from different approaches and it was very encouraging to get six different names on the scoresheet."
Looking forward to England's game against Scotland at Wycombe on Sunday, Powell added: "The Scots will provide us with more problems than we had tonight.
"We'll be expected to win the game but they always raise their game against us so it will be a challenge - and a challenge we'll relish."
