The FIFA Women’s World Cup starts on 7 June in France as the England Lionesses look to bring the trophy home.
Managed by Phil Neville, they aim to go one step further than their male counterparts did and win their first world cup.
Neville, admitted at Wembley yesterday, that having come from the winning-is-everything environment of the men’s game he has had to compromise.
He has now bought into the need for his players to be visible, whether that means signing autographs after games or interrupting routines for schools visits (www.independent.co.uk)
This is positive, as he tries to generate positive attention the women’s game deserves.
