Four Nations on Eurosport
« on: January 15, 2007, 06:05:33 PM »
British Eurosport 2 will have live coverage from the Four Nations Tournament in China this month, as the teams prepare for the 2007 FIFA Women’s World Cup.

England and World champions Germany will travel to China to join the FIFA Women's World Cup hosts and the United States in Guangzhou between 26 and 30 January.

After qualifying for the 2007 FIFA Women's World Cup, the side were brought back to earth with a bump when they were beaten 5-1 by Germany in October.

With the USA also ranked second in the world, England will be under no illusion about the challenge awaiting them.

However, with Head Coach Hope Powell adamant that her side will not be travelling to China in September to make up the numbers, the three games will be invaluable match preparation, as well as helping with a cultural introduction to China, its people, customs and climate.

The match schedule has been altered over the weekend, with England's first two games now having different kick-off times.

Friday 26 January

5.30am - China vs England

Sunday 28 January

8.00am - England vs USA

Tuesday 30 January

5.30am - Germany vs England

British Eurosport 2 is available on Sky (Ch 411) and ntl:Telewest (Ch 525)

No satellite TV for me either. Don't watch TV enough to justify it.

I think there maybe other ways of catching up with the games though.  ;)

I would not want to advertise other peoples discussion forums... but this looked interesting:

Fortunately, I am fairly early riser.

Seems to be very 'ropey' at the moment.  :-[

The internet streaming seemed to work fine this morning. I obviously couldn't understand the commentary and analysis  ;) but at least it provided an option.

I must admit I was a little concerned at just before 5:30am when I first put the channel on and they were showing snooker.  :D

The England - USA match didn't seem to be on CCTV-5 this morning.  :( I presume they are only covering the Chinese games live.
