Women’s World Cup 2015 – The Lionesses

England Women kick off their 2015 World Cup campaign on Tuesday, with their Group F opener against France. Head coach Mark Sampson has said, ‘there is a wave of optimism in the squad. We are happy, ready, determined and focused.’

Since taking over in 2013, Sampson has a strong record – a 70% win ratio, only losing four times in twenty competitive games. In qualifying for the World Cup the team have played ten, and won ten, so confidence is high.
