Millwall set to host Women's World Cup Qualifier this SaturdayLondon's famous landmark, the South Bank Lion on Westminster Bridge, was a fitting sight to welcome the 'Lioness' Alex Scott ahead of England's FIFA Women's World Cup 2015 against Wales this Saturday at The Den (kick-off 7.05pm).
England internationals are back in the capital just over a year after their momentous win against Brazil at London 2012, when they played for Team GB, in front of a crowd of over 70,000 at Wembley.
This time, with only five days to go, the pride will be making their way south of the river to The Den to take on neighbours Wales, with a mission to qualify for their third successive World Cup Finals, Canada 2015. They have also been pitched alongside Ukraine, Belarus, Turkey and Montenegro in Group 6.
England's 'Lionesses' last played at The Den in a 1-0 victory over Spain on 1st April 2010. Katie Chapman's goal gave England the win in what proved to be a crucial victory over Spain. The win maintained England's 100% record en route to qualifying for the World Cup in Germany two years ago, when England eventually reached the Quarter-Finals.
The players are hoping that London will get behind them once again and fans from across the capital will come out with England flags waving and roar them on to another victory at The Den.
