England flew yesterday via Madrid to Santiago, here are a few pics of the kits and other material








Who on earth was taking pics of the players kit?

Excellent goals, particularly the first one. Well done girls!

Having watched some highlights of the games, the USA looked impressive as always.

They looked assured and never likely to lose the game.  Maybe they watched the U-17s in New Zealand and made their minds up not to be upstaged by the little sisters . . another good match by England at the top level.

Excellent start ;)

In case anyone's not noticed, the games can be seen live via Fifa.com.
Although it suddenly stopped coverage when Chile had that free kick right at the end. Well, did for me anyway :(

Same starting line-up tonight as it was vs Chile, I am surprised Houghton is not captain actually.

Pretty flukey goal, but, a goal's a goal  ;D

Let's hope for England keep the lead ;)

Sadly not... but they were unlucky on a few occasions, but played really well, especially Rebecca Spencer and Jess Clarke. Such a shame Jess' first shot didn't go in, would have been a spectacular goal.

Yeah, I liked Rebecca Spencer in that match... seemed very calm and experienced - except for one unlucky shot :(

But 1-1 reflects the match quite well I think, both teams were absolutely equal.

I wonder if Dowie's goal would have gone in without the touch from the goal keeper, where's hawk eye when you need it  :D

The only thin I find annoying is England are playing defensively when they have good players on the ball like Buet Rafferty Allen Duggan Clarke or Chaplen. More passing and movement could be a valuable option later in the tournament.

They definitely have to improve their passing... that was awful today and caused several dangerous situations. Passing was also too risky on several occasions, especially in the defence.

Yes - if we'd swapped goalies the score might have been totally different.

Just watched the first half of the New Zealand match...what is clear is that Chile are the weakest team in the group and England are in for another hard test on Wednesday against another big, physical team with attacking potential. 2 - 0 at half time but that flatters Chile . The 15 year old Rosie White scored 2 to add to the hat-trick she scored in the under 17 tournament.
