Fancy A Nibble?

OK girls. Time to start warming up for the World Cup.

The FIFA Women's World cup starts on 11th September in China. England are ranked 12th.

The squad has been named:

Rachel Brown (Everton), Alex Scott (Arsenal), Casey Stoney (Chelsea), Katie Chapman (Arsenal), Faye White (Arsenal), Mary Phillip (Arsenal), Karen Carney (Arsenal), Fara Williams (Everton), Eniola Aluko (Chelsea), Kelly Smith (Arsenal), Rachel Yankey (Arsenal), Anita Asante (Arsenal), Siobhan Chamberlain (Chelsea), Rachel Unitt (Everton), Sue Smith (Leeds United), Jill Scott (Everton), Jody Handley (Everton), Lianne Sanderson (Arsenal), Vicky Exley (Doncaster Rovers Belles), Stephanie Houghton (Leeds United), Carly Telford (Leeds United)

Under the leadership of the head coach, Hope Powell, the England team fought their way in through qualifying matches last year. Their first match in the tournament will be against Japan.

I'm starting my preparations in plenty of time to avoid the rush. Off to the shops now to stock up on nibbles and a couple of crates of Bacardi Breezer.
