Prime Minister wishes England well ahead of Women's World Cup.
The England Women’s team were David Cameron’s special guests at Downing Street on Tuesday as the Prime Minister wished the squad luck ahead of their FIFA Women’s World Cup campaign in Germany later this month.
The Prime Minister greeted the team in the garden of No.10 and spent time chatting to each player, National Coach Hope Powell, and FA Chairman David Bernstein. Mr Cameron told the the team that he had enjoyed watching last month’s FA Women's Cup Final between Arsenal and Bristol Academy on television and said he'd make sure he's tuned in to England's opening World Cup game against Mexico on 27 June.
The visit to No.10 was preceded by an appareance at a Street League coaching event in Lancaster House. Street League is an official charity partner of both The FA and Downing Street and it exists to utilise the power of football to help young people who are out of work gain the necessary training to help get them back into employment. Powell and her players mingled with the participants and gave a few hints and tips as they watched the sessions from the sidelines.
Powell will name her 21-player World Cup squad on Friday 10 June.
