Good evening. This weekend marks the

halfway stage of the WSL one season

0:00:430:00:49

and it looks like a two horse race

for the title. Coming up, Manchester

0:00:490:00:56

City aim to maintain their momentum

with victory over Liverpool. Any

0:00:560:01:00

slip-up from Manchester City could

see Chelsea edged into pole position

0:01:000:01:03

with a win at Birmingham. We are

keeping up with the curtains as

0:01:030:01:08

daughter, Lucy, aims to follow in

the footsteps of her father, Chris.

0:01:080:01:14

Safe hands in the studio this

evening, welcome to my guests. We

0:01:140:01:20

begin with Manchester City who are

back at the Academy Stadium this

0:01:200:01:26

afternoon for the first time in

eight games.

0:01:260:01:37

What a finish. Scores Axel super

goal.

0:01:420:01:55

So, could Manchester City preserve

their 100% home record in all

0:02:020:02:05

competitions this season when they

hosted Liverpool?

Our commentary

0:02:050:02:10

comes from Vicki Sparkes.

0:02:100:02:11

Manchester City do have injuries to

do it, no Steph Houghton or Karen

0:02:160:02:22

Bardsley. There are four changes

from their draw with Chelsea.

0:02:220:02:32

Liverpool are also missing players

and Siobhan Chamberlain and Casey

0:02:320:02:37

Stoney so 19-year-old goalkeeper,

Becky Flaherty, continues in goal.

0:02:370:02:43

Satara Murray comes in.

0:02:430:02:49

Jennifer Beattie, looking for the

run of Demi Stokes. Nadia Nadim is

0:03:090:03:15

in there. Abbie McManus, was looking

for Nadia Nadim again. Nadia Nadim,

0:03:150:03:27

looking danger is in these early

stages.

0:03:270:03:34

stages. Sophie Ingle's clearance

ricocheted right into the path of

0:03:340:03:42

Nikkita Parris. Manchester take the

lead and I don't think Nikita Parris

0:03:420:03:47

knew very much about that at all.

What an unlucky goal for Liverpool

0:03:470:03:51

to concede. Nikita Parris does

create it by closing down and Becky

0:03:510:03:59

Flaherty, scrambling. Can't reach

the ball before it rolls in.

0:03:590:04:07

Skipping past the

0:04:070:04:12

Skipping past the challenge of

Satara Murray.

0:04:130:04:18

Satara Murray. Nervously saved in

the end by Becky Flaherty, the

0:04:220:04:26

19-year-old. Perhaps mindful of the

early goal that crept in. Taking no

0:04:260:04:29

chances.

0:04:290:04:38

Breaks kindly for Nikita Parris,

against her England team-mate. Goes

0:04:410:04:47

down under the challenge of Caroline

Weir. It is a penalty to Manchester

0:04:470:04:52

City. Nikita Parris, the trickery

was too much in the end for

0:04:520:04:56

Liverpool. They make the challenge

and she wins the penalty. Izzy

0:04:560:05:04

Christiansen has scored five

penalties this season. Can she make

0:05:040:05:10

it six? Yes she can. Hi, into the

roof of the net.

0:05:100:05:19

roof of the net. She saved a penalty

in the last match against Arsenal.

0:05:190:05:26

Becky Flaherty, couldn't keep that

one out from Isobel Christiansen and

0:05:280:05:32

Manchester City have their second

goal. The penalty itself, not too

0:05:320:05:39

much apparent contact from Caroline

Weir, but not too many appeals from

0:05:390:05:42

her either, whether she felt by

going in she had given the referee

0:05:420:05:47

that decision to make.

0:05:470:05:53

that decision to make. England's top

scorer coming close to reducing the

0:05:530:05:57

deficit. Manchester City always

happy to go back and Bill from the

0:05:570:06:04

back. As they do with Keira Walsh.

Deflection, goes behind for a

0:06:040:06:12

corner.

0:06:120:06:17

corner. Claire Emslie with the

corner towards Nikita Parris. She

0:06:200:06:23

gets her second of the game.

Manchester City's third. She knew

0:06:230:06:29

about that one.

0:06:290:06:34

about that one. Her 11th of the

season in all competitions. Her

0:06:350:06:38

fifth in the league in nine

appearances, Nikita Parris is on

0:06:380:06:44

fire for Manchester City.

0:06:440:06:52

Nikita Parris, are on a hat-trick.

Putting Alex Greenwood under

0:07:030:07:07

pressure. Liverpool tidy up, but it

is back again by Manchester City.

0:07:070:07:14

Good block by Kate Longhurst, but

the ricochet takes the ball into the

0:07:140:07:21

Liverpool match. Becky Flaherty,

can't believe it. It is another goal

0:07:210:07:28

for Manchester City, another fortune

one, this time for Abbie McManus.

0:07:280:07:33

She doesn't know much about it. Kate

Longhurst's clearance, bounces into

0:07:330:07:41

her. 4-0 against Liverpool.

0:07:410:07:48

This shot wasn't too far away. It

will be a corner of Satara Murray.

0:07:540:08:01

Can Manchester City rubs salt in the

wounds of Liverpool?

0:08:010:08:08

Jans almost got on the end of that

header.

Proud of the players because

0:08:140:08:21

we have spoke a lot about areas we

need to improve and areas we think

0:08:210:08:24

we can make sure we are more

dominant. I think today we were,

0:08:240:08:29

from start to finish but we

controlled the opponent for 90

0:08:290:08:32

minutes. We played some good stuff,

builder was exceptionally good.

We

0:08:320:08:36

came here with a game plan and it

went out of the window after

0:08:360:08:39

seconds. It is disappointing but it

is something we will as a group. It

0:08:390:08:45

set us a mountain to climb after 30

seconds. You are down to a team that

0:08:450:08:50

hasn't lost here for a long time and

that wasn't part of the plan.

Didn't

0:08:500:08:56

even realise it gone in, I was

rubbing my face after it hit me.

0:08:560:09:01

Happy to get the win. She should be

happy, it was a comprehensive

0:09:010:09:05

victory for Manchester City. To say

it was a gift of an opener is an

0:09:050:09:13

understatement?

It is one back gets

worse every time you watch it. It is

0:09:130:09:20

really unfortunate. Becky Flaherty

in goal, she makes the decision to

0:09:200:09:30

play out.

0:09:300:09:35

play out. Sophie Ingle gets the

ball, she sees pressure and she

0:09:370:09:40

should have given it back to the

goalkeeper, but she doesn't she

0:09:400:09:44

tries to chip it over.

To be fair to

Liverpool, they have some injury

0:09:440:09:50

setbacks at their own. Up until

half-time it was still only 1-0?

0:09:500:09:56

Three international players missing

for Liverpool makes a massive

0:09:560:09:58

difference. The depth of the

Liverpool squad is a huge. Those

0:09:580:10:04

three I think made a massive

difference, absolutely. But they

0:10:040:10:07

were resolute in the second half.

Scott Rogers mentioned there was no

0:10:070:10:15

game plan, there was, just after

been fortunate first goal.

0:10:150:10:25

been fortunate first goal. They

didn't offer too much up front. They

0:10:250:10:31

forced Manchester City into

uncomfortable possession. They can

0:10:310:10:34

pass the ball sideways, inside and

backwards and force them down the

0:10:340:10:38

lines as well. It did give the likes

of Nikita Parris joy down the wide,

0:10:380:10:43

but they were happy to defend those

crosses from Nikita Parris and to

0:10:430:10:50

limit Manchester City to 50-50

aerial battles in the box. They did

0:10:500:10:54

a great job in that first half,

discount the unlucky first goal.

0:10:540:10:59

Technically and tactically, they

were set up very well in the first

0:10:590:11:03

half.

To be fair to them again it

was going pretty well up until the

0:11:030:11:08

disputable penalty decision. Was it

the right decision?

When Caroline

0:11:080:11:14

Weir goes to ground, you are making

it easy for the referee to make a

0:11:140:11:20

decision. Maybe she doesn't have the

defensive mentality, stay on your

0:11:200:11:23

feet and forced Nikita Parris to the

line and off the pitch. You don't

0:11:230:11:28

necessarily have to dive in. Nikkita

Parris skips past Alex Greenwood and

0:11:280:11:34

Alex Weir to ground.

As a

goalkeeper, you are looking at your

0:11:340:11:38

forward player which Caroline Weir

is, and saying, don't go to ground,

0:11:380:11:44

don't dive in. She made easy for the

referee. But Isobel Christiansen

0:11:440:11:52

dispatch the penalty very well and

why she is one of Manchester City's

0:11:520:11:56

top scorers this season.

Liverpool

have had two big defeats, including

0:11:560:12:01

the defeat to you and Arsenal. They

have their strengths, but they have

0:12:010:12:06

some frailties defensively as well?

You look at their defeat in midweek,

0:12:060:12:15

four goals and four goals a game.

Your gifting goals to Manchester

0:12:150:12:19

City and Arsenal midweek. This is a

set piece you can work on in

0:12:190:12:22

training. Alex Greenwood doesn't

even get up the ground to challenge

0:12:220:12:28

Nikkita Parris.

Six yards out,

standing job as a defender, you give

0:12:280:12:33

yourself no chance. Poor defending.

This one, I think is unfortunate.

0:12:330:12:42

The overrunning lap from Abbie

McManus is excellent. She gets into

0:12:420:12:50

an attacking position but again, it

is a calamitous way the ball ends up

0:12:500:12:55

in the back of the net.

It was, but

somebody shone from Manchester City,

0:12:550:13:00

we heard from her before, Nikita

Parris. She was involved in all four

0:13:000:13:06

goals, what kind of a season is she

having?

0:13:060:13:12

having?

She is having a fantastic

season. She has this potential, but

0:13:130:13:17

we are seeing a maturity. When do I

take my player and down the line,

0:13:170:13:22

but when do I have to come back out

and link up. We are seeing her grow.

0:13:220:13:28

Wright, a win for Manchester City,

but what of their title rivals

0:13:280:13:32

Chelsea? They travelled to

Birmingham on Saturday wanting to

0:13:320:13:37

maintain their unbeaten run in the

league.

0:13:370:13:44

COMMENTATOR: England international

Evan White.

0:13:480:13:55

Evan White. Onto Emma Foy less and

straight into the grateful arms of

0:13:550:13:58

Lindahl. Kirby winning possession

deep in Birmingham territory. Looks

0:13:580:14:07

pick

0:14:070:14:12

pick out Dunn. She does not miss

from there. A poacher's finish for

0:14:140:14:20

Fran Kirby. The England

international with her 14th of the

0:14:200:14:25

season. A move she started, Dunn

blocked and Kirby fired the ball

0:14:250:14:31

under the legs of Ann-Katrin Berger.

Birmingham with the high defensive

0:14:310:14:39

line and they have been caught out.

Fran Kirby. Took too long and the

0:14:390:14:44

chance is gone. Ji So-Yun winning

the ball in midfield and finds a

0:14:440:14:52

colleague in the form of Drew

Spence. Driving at the Birmingham

0:14:520:14:57

defence. Onto Kirby, saved by

Berger.

0:14:570:15:08

Williams into Chelsea territory down

the left flank,

0:15:080:15:16

the left flank, picking out Follis.

Shoot straight at Lindahl.

0:15:180:15:25

Shoot straight at Lindahl. Katie

Chapman, the captain, finds Crystal

0:15:250:15:27

Dunn. Looking for Cuthbert and slips

and Ji So-Yun, left footed. What a

0:15:270:15:33

strike! The South Korean with her

fifth of the season in all

0:15:330:15:42

competitions. What a sumptuous

strike it was, with the inside of

0:15:420:15:47

her left foot, over the top of the

Birmingham keeper. Ji So-Yun the

0:15:470:15:57

goal-scorer for Chelsea finds

Crystal Dunn. And finds Cuthbert.

0:15:570:16:02

Saved by the legs of Berger who

keeps it to two for Chelsea.

I'm

0:16:020:16:09

quite disappointed. Forget the

result, I am disappointed with the

0:16:090:16:13

performance that could have got a

better result. I think Chelsea with

0:16:130:16:18

their for the taking.

I am

disappointed overall. We were

0:16:180:16:23

terrific, I think we played well.

Got a couple and could have got a

0:16:230:16:28

couple more but the first half we

were dominant, play gets football. I

0:16:280:16:34

think their keeper

0:16:340:16:39

think their keeper kept them in it

in the first half.

0:16:400:16:42

STUDIO: Another impressive

performance from Chelsea but what

0:16:420:16:44

about that finish from Ji?

Her

technical ability is amazing. What

0:16:440:16:50

we are seeing from Ji, back at her

best. This topped off her

0:16:500:16:55

performance. She was outstanding. To

pick it out, top corner.

She is a

0:16:550:17:01

player who can do that. Asante

rejoining Chelsea and three clean

0:17:010:17:08

sheets. Were you surprised by her

appointment?

I would not say

0:17:080:17:17

surprise, she has worked at Arsenal

and Chelsea. I do not see her in her

0:17:170:17:22

prime. But she brings a calmness. We

have played with her in the national

0:17:220:17:28

team. She has a calm presence. When

I look at MSAs, she has been there

0:17:280:17:35

since 2012 and they last won the

double in 2015 -- Emma Hayes. I

0:17:350:17:43

wonder when the pressure will come

back on her, she needs to win

0:17:430:17:48

silverware with all the signings and

talented players.

We did see

0:17:480:17:53

silverware with all the signings and

talented players.

We did see the

0:17:530:17:54

return of Ann-Katrin Berger. What a

story from a human level. Surgery

0:17:540:18:01

for thyroid cancer and back at this

level.

And putting in a stunning

0:18:010:18:06

performance. From the football

community, to see what she has been

0:18:060:18:11

through and being vocal and open

about that. Her coach knows how she

0:18:110:18:18

has been determined to get back and

how hard she has worked to earn this

0:18:180:18:22

first start.

Three more games to

catch up on. Starting with Arsenal

0:18:220:18:28

who were looking to build on a

midweek

0:18:280:18:31

who were looking to build on a

midweek win at Liverpool with

0:18:310:18:32

victory over Yeovil Town.

COMMENTATOR: With Arsenal not beaten

0:18:320:18:41

in their last five matches it would

always be difficult for Yeovil and

0:18:410:18:46

with 37 minutes on the clock, Beth

Mead proved too much for the back

0:18:460:18:52

line and Danielle Carter finished

with her goal. Arsenal

0:18:520:19:02

with her goal. Arsenal came in with

consecutive wins. This time Beth

0:19:020:19:04

Mead picked the spot and made it

2-0.

0:19:040:19:11

2-0. O'Reilly caused havoc in the

final third. Arsenal's pace

0:19:120:19:16

continued to create openings. A

great opportunity to make it three

0:19:160:19:23

for Carter and she made no mistake.

Into the last ten minutes. Jordan

0:19:230:19:30

Nobbs testing with this fierce free

kick. Beth Mead was in the right

0:19:300:19:35

place at the right time to give

Arsenal a deserved 4-0 win.

It has

0:19:350:19:41

been a big week. It was a

professional job.

We got the job

0:19:410:19:44

done.

A wintry afternoon with the select

0:19:440:19:53

security stadium and Reading caught

cold after six minutes. A decisive

0:19:530:20:01

finish for her fifth goal of the

campaign. Reading won on penalties

0:20:010:20:05

when they met last month but Everton

looked bright from the outset. Chloe

0:20:050:20:11

Kelly refusing to let the attack

breakdown. Great tenacity and a

0:20:110:20:16

better strike for 2-0. It has been

three defeats and a draw for Reading

0:20:160:20:24

in 2018. Hope with this corner.

Rachel Furness halving the deficit.

0:20:240:20:31

After the break, another corner

caused problems and this time it was

0:20:310:20:36

Kelly's who forced a great save. The

second half saw good chances for

0:20:360:20:41

both sides. Brooke Chaplen's effort

beating the keeper but not the

0:20:410:20:47

inside of the post.

We have had too

many hard luck stories. We have

0:20:470:20:54

competed with the top teams but have

come away with a draw or losing by a

0:20:540:21:00

short margin but today we have won

and I think deservedly so. A

0:21:000:21:07

resolute second-half and outstanding

attacking play first half.

A nice

0:21:070:21:10

day.

COMMENTATOR: Bristol are struggling

0:21:100:21:16

at the wrong end of the table. A win

against Sunderland would put them

0:21:160:21:21

both level on points but on ten

minutes Bridget Galloway had enough

0:21:210:21:26

space to turn an early cross into

the game's opened up. Sunderland's

0:21:260:21:33

last game was a 13-0 drubbing but

they would not have it easy today.

0:21:330:21:40

Headed in by Lauren Hemp for the

equaliser. Sunderland's set pieces

0:21:400:21:46

cause problems. A couple of efforts

before a long-range effort forced a

0:21:460:21:53

fine save.

0:21:530:21:59

fine save. And before the hour,

another dead ball creating

0:21:590:22:04

difficulty in the Bristol area.

Nobody dealt with the free kick and

0:22:040:22:08

Bristol born Rachel Pitman made it

2-1. Another opportunity. Carla

0:22:080:22:17

Humphrey unlucky to see her effort

hit the bar. A memorable moment for

0:22:170:22:24

Sunderland's match-winner.

Delighted

for Rachel Pitman who has been on

0:22:240:22:28

the sideline with a nasty injury. It

is her hometown and her family was

0:22:280:22:33

here.

She got the winner.

STUDIO: That win moves Sunderland to

0:22:330:22:39

fifth. Arsenal remaining in touch.

You can set alerts on the BBC Sport

0:22:390:22:52

app. Doncaster winning at Durham.

Cementing their position at the top

0:22:520:23:01

of WSL 2 table.

0:23:010:23:01

Cementing their position at the top

of WSL 2 table. Interesting,

0:23:010:23:06

back-to-back wins for you this week.

Clean sheets. Let's get that in.

0:23:060:23:16

Ever the defender! What is life like

under the new coach Joe?

He is a

0:23:160:23:26

passionate coach and knows what a

job he has brought in to Arsenal. I

0:23:260:23:31

am pleased. Sometimes it is going

back to basics but we have young

0:23:310:23:35

players with a lot of talent but

they be back coaching and

0:23:350:23:40

organisation, patterns of play, and

Joe is giving them that. And we are

0:23:400:23:46

seeing Leah Williamson becoming more

aware of her positional awareness.

0:23:460:23:50

Beth Mead who can score, she has

more confidence in her play.

0:23:500:23:56

Danielle Carter is another.

I am

enjoying him at the moment. An

0:23:560:24:01

impressive win for your side Everton

over Reading. No relegation this

0:24:010:24:06

season. You confident they can

compete with the league becomes

0:24:060:24:13

professional?

Relegation may been

something people associate with

0:24:130:24:18

Everton but they have gained

momentum. They are a young squad who

0:24:180:24:22

have turned professional. It has

taken them some months to get up to

0:24:220:24:26

speed. They are a force to be

reckoned with.

As Rachel will

0:24:260:24:31

testify, goalkeepers are a unique

breed and hoping to follow in

0:24:310:24:37

Rachel's footsteps is a youngster, a

12-year-old wear football runs in

0:24:370:24:46

the family. We went to meet the

Kirklands.

0:24:460:24:53

When did you first playing? I don't

know, I was watching my dad on the

0:24:590:25:05

telly and I started. You were about

eight. I was not good when I was

0:25:050:25:10

eight. You were not interested. I

was more interested... Mum was a

0:25:100:25:19

dancer and I had her dancing

abilities. I did not know who to

0:25:190:25:27

choose.

Who to choose! It was not

one or the other!

I think I

0:25:270:25:34

preferred dance and then went more

to football.

Your dad put a bet on

0:25:340:25:38

you to play for England before you

were 30.

Have you done anything

0:25:380:25:43

similar?

I tried to get a bet on her

to play for England or Scotland. But

0:25:430:25:50

they did not get back and now she

has signed, there is probably not

0:25:500:25:56

much point. I will try to do it but

the odds will go down. My dad put it

0:25:560:26:01

on when I was 13 and he got 100-1.

If I had gone into the bookies, they

0:26:010:26:07

would have given us 1 million to

one!

Seeing me at 13!

0:26:070:26:14

What made you want to be a

goalkeeper?

From an early age we

0:26:190:26:24

found out I was accident prone. It

is because I was throwing myself

0:26:240:26:33

about everywhere. I forget how big I

was. I was really tall. I would walk

0:26:330:26:41

into walls. I would run downstairs

and fall down stairs. I went in goal

0:26:410:26:47

in school. We have a concrete

playground. At one point, I dived on

0:26:470:26:55

the floor, forgetting it was

concrete and from that point I

0:26:550:26:59

thought I think I want to be

goalkeeper. I was fearless, I threw

0:26:590:27:04

myself on the floor and quite

enjoyed it.

I do not know why! Do

0:27:040:27:10

your friends say anything, like your

dad is Chris Kirkland?

When I went

0:27:100:27:16

into the juniors I realised why

people came up to me, saying your

0:27:160:27:21

dad is Chris Kirkland. I said, yes,

I live with him.

0:27:210:27:29

I live with him.

COMMENTATOR: A good

save by Kirkland.

Does she have the

0:27:290:27:32

attributes to be a top keeper?

I

think so, she has worked hard. Shot

0:27:320:27:37

is probably -- shot stopping is

probably her best attribute. She has

0:27:370:27:45

a lot to do. Since she has gone to

Liverpool, they tried to get them

0:27:450:27:49

playing out from the back and it is

new and she knows she has to work

0:27:490:27:54

hard at that. What about the setup?

Always have been a Liverpool fan so

0:27:540:27:58

it was special when she signed.

But

the hard work begins now.

What is it

0:27:580:28:05

like a training? Exciting. I am in

the car and I am going to train with

0:28:050:28:12

Liverpool. At

0:28:120:28:17

Liverpool. At first I was amazed. I

am getting better at being good with

0:28:200:28:22

my feet because my dad said you have

to be good with your feet to be a

0:28:220:28:26

goalkeeper these days. What was the

best goalkeeper you have faced?

0:28:260:28:35

Probably the German goalkeeper who

has now retired. Nadine. She is

0:28:350:28:41

imposing. When you go up against

her, you do not know which way. She

0:28:410:28:46

is big? A bit scary. Schmeichel.

What type of goalkeeper are you? I

0:28:460:28:55

like shot stopping. What do you

think about female goalkeepers?

It

0:28:550:29:00

is the toughest position on the

pitch. Very unforgiving. One mistake

0:29:000:29:06

and it will be in the back of the

net and the good ones make fewer

0:29:060:29:10

mistakes. It is the desire to

improve. The will to train hard. You

0:29:100:29:16

will make mistakes and it is how you

respond.

0:29:160:29:22

You must be proud?

0:29:220:29:24

You must be proud?

Beyond proud.

What is so hard, she has done it

0:29:240:29:30

herself. She is following in her

dad's footsteps, but she has got the

0:29:300:29:35

talent. She has got to have it and

she has worked hard. I just hope it

0:29:350:29:40

can continue for her.

What is your

dream, do you want to play in an FA

0:29:400:29:45

Cup final at Wembley for Liverpool?

Is that your dream? Yes, I want to

0:29:450:29:52

play in the World Cup one day and I

want to play at Wembley and

0:29:520:29:55

everything as well.

Fantastic, shall

we go and have a little kick around.

0:29:550:30:01

This is the FA Cup final.

Get ready.

This is the winning penalty.

0:30:010:30:11

Quality. Absolute quality. This is

the big question, do you want to

0:30:120:30:18

represent England or Scotland? Oh

no, the pressure is on.

No offence

0:30:180:30:25

mum, but I will probably pick

England.

0:30:250:30:28

Lucy has new fans here at the show.

If you want to start playing

0:30:280:30:33

football like her, head over to the

get inspired website and find the

0:30:330:30:39

details about your nearest club. She

is lovely, it isn't she, in terms of

0:30:390:30:49

her attributes, Rachel, what are

your first impressions will she make

0:30:490:30:53

it into the goalkeeping union?

Maybe, absolutely. I wanted to be a

0:30:530:31:01

stuntwoman at school, diving around

the stairs, exactly what I love. She

0:31:010:31:06

is fearless. Talking doesn't seem to

be a problem, I don't know what her

0:31:060:31:10

dad is on about. We saw her penalty

save. My goodness. This is a great

0:31:100:31:18

start. Saving a penalty from an

international, England player. Sue

0:31:180:31:25

Smith, you can read her like a book,

her body is open is always going to

0:31:250:31:29

go to the left side. She has done

her homework. That is not the

0:31:290:31:35

goalkeeper does, they have a little

book when they look at top strikers.

0:31:350:31:38

Sue Smith isn't a prolific penalty

taker.

Left feet and penalties I

0:31:380:31:46

don't know what the stats are on

bad.

Chris Kirkland mentioned about

0:31:460:31:54

coaching the goalkeepers, has it

improved in terms of specialised

0:31:540:31:57

coaching in terms of the shot

stoppers?

I think it has improved. I

0:31:570:32:02

don't think it is consistently good

across all goods and centres of

0:32:020:32:07

excellence. You have got to look at

personality characteristics,

0:32:070:32:16

fearlessness, the capacity not to

worry about getting injured. The

0:32:160:32:20

capability to organise the back

line, you are a natural leader as a

0:32:200:32:25

goalkeeper. It is wonderful to have

the part way we do have now to the

0:32:250:32:29

centres of excellence, regular

coaching. From the ages of 12,

0:32:290:32:34

getting goalkeeping coaching a few

times a week, that is exactly what

0:32:340:32:38

we have always needed and hopefully

it will continue.

OK, speaking of

0:32:380:32:45

shot stoppers and England's

goalkeepers will be facing the best

0:32:450:32:47

forward lines, the lioness is, what

do expect from them in that and

0:32:470:32:58

do expect from them in that and --

the tournament?

As a player and a

0:32:580:33:00

goalkeeper, you want to test

yourself.

We take a bit of a break

0:33:000:33:04

now, in the meantime England travel

to America. You will have to see how

0:33:040:33:09

they get on against against France,

Germany and the USA live on the BBC.

0:33:090:33:14

Before that there is commentary on

Chelsea's Premier League clash with

0:33:140:33:19

West Brom on Monday night and on

Tuesday, Tottenham travel to Italy

0:33:190:33:24

for the Champions League. My thanks

of course took Alex and Rachel.

0:33:240:33:34

After 4-0 win over Liverpool, it is

a Manchester City slickers who lead

0:33:340:33:38

the way in WSL one. Goodbye for now.
