Introducing England’s 2015 World Cup Football Team

Ranked sixth in the world – its highest ranking ever – England has high hopes for this year’s World Cup. With eight new players and eight three-time veterans, the Lionesses are looking to win the competition by playing each match like it’s their last. Winning the Cyprus Cup back in March surely helps the ambition, determination, and attitude for these hard-working athletes. Without further ado, here is the team (and the photos) you’ve been waiting for!
