“PSG are going to be disappointed after losing out on the first game to us, but again we are disappointed too after our performance against Lyon,” Bonner told ManCity.com. “For us we are looking to finish the tournament in the strongest position possible.

“It’s been tough and we’ve worked really hard on the training pitch so for us we want to end on a positive note.”

The 27-year-old has fully immersed herself into City’s rigorous training sessions and is enjoying the standard of play from her team mates.

“I’ve really enjoyed my time here so far,” Bonner added. “I knew all the girls pretty well before I came here anyway so I knew what to expect - I think you know what you’re getting when you come to a club like City.

“I’ve really enjoyed it so far, the training has been hard but I love it.

“I think you can see that the team trains how they want to play and it obviously contributes to the intensity level of training.

“It helps as players because if you train as hard as you can then the game should be easy.

“With the players we’ve got here it really helps that everyone’s attitudes are like that and everyone wants to win.

“The US tour is a fantastic opportunity and it’s a privilege to be here. You don’t get the opportunity to play these types of games, especially in pre-season, where you can try out different things that you would necessarily do in a competitive game.

“We want to leave here in a better place than we were when we came.”

City take on PSG at the Hard Rock Stadium on Sunday 29 July at 6.15pm EST (11.15pm BST).
