Everton midfielder Fara Williams believes that the squad are raring to go against Hungary today.
Hungary v England
World Cup Qualifier
1.30pm, Thursday 27 October 2005
England take on Hungary this lunchtime knowing that a win will put them in an ideal position to qualify for the 2007 Women's World Cup in China.
Everton midfielder Fara Williams has been in fine form for club and country this season and still aged only 21, she has cemented her place in the England midfield, netting 10 goals in 32 appearances.
Her last goal in and England shirt came from the penalty spot against Austria last month.
"Who wouldn¹t look forward to a World Cup qualifier?" Fara told TheFA.com ahead of today's game.
"Euro 2005 didn't go as we expected so we are looking forward to these World Cup qualifiers and hopefully we'll qualify for the Finals in China."
The win last month against Austria put the side in a great position in the group, but Fara admits the performance needs to improve this time round.
"We didn¹t play so well against Austria but we got the result, so we need to move on. It¹s going to be tough but I am sure we will be up for it.
"I have never played against Hungary myself but I know the U19s played in Hungary this year and it wasn't easy.
"If they are doing well, then the senior side should be just as good. It is tough but it is always going to be, going to other countries, especially when a place in the World Cup is at stake."
Now that the season is in full swing, Fara is confident everyone will be geared up for the game.
"The Austria game was maybe a bit more difficult than it should have been as the players had only just started the season.
"There were players out there that were not at their fittest and after the Euro's, as everybody had trained so hard to get there, perhaps there was a bit of a 'hangover' from that.
"Looking at it now, I think everybody is back to full fitness bar Faye White, and with competition for places all over the squad, no-one will be relaxing or taking it easy, as goal difference could be important by the end of the campaign."
