Socks around her shins, hugging the right touchline, Tobin Heath looks like a throwback to English football as it was in the 1970s, not one of this league’s new American glitterati.The focus on the game’s US arrivals has been disproportionate to their contribution so far. Sam Mewis hasn’t set the world alight at Manchester City, where Rose Lavelle has barely played. Alex Morgan won’t appear for at least two weeks at Tottenham, citing a ‘small setback’ on Sunday.But Heath delivered the first performance commensurate with all the talk, revealing in the process that opponents will need to be a great deal better prepared for her than this.
