England midfielder Emily Westwood believes there is more to come from her team after they progressed to the quarter-finals of Euro 2009 on Monday.

England managed a 1-1 draw with Sweden in their final group game to set up a tie with hosts Finland on Thursday.

"We're improving and we're getting better as the tournament progresses," Westwood told BBC Radio Merseyside.

"We've proved it [how well we can play] in the lead up games to the tournament in games against Norway and Canada."

Westwood made her first appearance in the competition as a second-half substitute against Sweden in Turku on Monday and played as a centre forward.

But the Everton utility player believes she can offer the side a different option along with the rest of the players on the England bench.

"For me personally I was really happy to get on," continued Westwood.

"To play 30 minutes and I enjoyed every single minute of it. I think I have got more to offer the squad and if I'm called upon - I'll hopefully give 110%.

"We know we can all play football. At the end of the day we're here to get the results to get us through to the final."

England play the tournament hosts Finland in Turku on Thursday, with kick off at 1600 BST.
