I can't say I have read anything about them flying out but I would imagine they would want some time to acclimatise....So they may well be there already....

Were some of them playing yesterday? I hope that the players get the support that is needed to perform well. It seems that most of our players have to train in their own time and I'm not sure that enthusiasm and desire can overcome a more professional approach.

The ones that play for Arsenal would have done yes....Katie Chapman scored a couple of goals and Scott, Asante, Phillip, Smith, Sanderson, Yankey and Carney all started it looks like...None of the Arsenal subs were used either so they all played the full 90

It will be good to see how they go on in China. They have three very tough fixtures but at least the US and Germany seem to have some big players missing. At the very least it will give the squad a chance to experience the type of conditions that they will face in September.

Yes it should be a good workout against three good sides and with some top German and US players missing they should have a decent chance to pull off some confidence boosting results...Fingers crossed !  :D
