Shooting practise before Germany at Wembley

Thursday 20 Nov 2014
England Women will play in front of 55,000 at Wembley

It’s every footballer’s dream to score at Wembley – so England’s Women made sure they had their eye in at St. George’s Park on Thursday.

Mark Sampson’s side will entertain European champions Germany under the arch on Sunday – the first time the Women’s team have played at the Home of Football since it re-opened in 2007.

They are currently preparing for this historic match at the national football centre in Burton-on-Trent.

And who better to take shooting practise than Marieanne Spacey, Sampson’s assistant coach who scored 28 goals in 91 England appearances?

A record 55,000 people are expected at Wembley on Sunday.

This match forms the first piece of preparation for next summer’s World Cup Finals in Canada. England qualified by topping their group, winning all 10 matches.

The World Cup draw will be held in Ottawa on Saturday 6 December.
