Cardiff City coach Michele Adams praised her team following their 5-0 defeat to Brondby in the opening match of their UEFA Women's Champions League qualifying group in Denmark.
The Welsh Cup winners had been handed the toughest of tasks to begin their group and Michele said afterwards: "I was more than pleased with the team's efforts.
"We must realise that we were playing one of Europe's top four teams last season. For long periods of the game, particularly in the second half, we stuck to our game plan, which was pleasing with such a young squad.
"The score doesn't really reflect the efforts that we put in."
Cardiff started well, putting in strong tackles and making the Danes work for their possession. However Catherine Neilson headed Brondby in front and Mia Olsen quickly added a second goal.
Brondby added further goals either side of half time but Cardiff continued to work hard with goalkeeper Rhian Nokes in fine form. Nicola Cousins almost pulled one back at the other end to reward their efforts but it was the Danish side who completed the scoring in the dying minutes with Nanna Christiansen scored from close range.
Cardiff's next match is against the Portuguese champions, SV 1 Dezembro on Saturday.
