England go into their second World Cup qualifier buoyed by recent developments in Group 5.
Hope Powell's England go into their second FIFA 2007 Women's World Cup qualifier in Hungary on 27 October buoyed by recent developments in Group Five.
Favourites France lost 1-0 at home to Holland in Angers, an upset that many observers believe has left the group wide open, despite four of the five countries having only played one game to date.
The early afternoon kick-off in Tapolca will ensure The Three Lions arrive early in Hungary to begin their pre-match preparations, and the return of Eniola Aluko and Rachel Yankey will further boost the forward line options, after Jo Potter and Sue Smith played 45 minutes each on the left flank in the 4-1 victory over Austria in September.
For the diehard fans thinking of travelling to support England, the match will be played in Tapolca, situated in a picturesque area of the country, with vineyard covered hills encircling the small town.
The town is 'famous' for its caves and streams and is surrounded by hills of volcanic origin. Below the town there is a Mesozoic karst cave, which has a special microclimate and is renowned for having curative properties.
Hungary's opening fixture saw them lose 3-0 at home to Austria in Buk on 24 September, and although they gifted Austria the lead after a mistake by 'keeper Melinda Szvorda, Hope Powell and her squad won't be taking anything for granted.
