    To be honest, i try to like it- i support them and watch them, however i find myself getting frustrated by the lack of something. I dont know wheter its just that its different to mens football or something, but i'm not sure...

    However, you do get to see 22 women in tight shorts... lol ;D ::) ;D

    I will be supporting them- what side are they on?

    BBC three if you can get it.
    Certainly it's less physical and the passing accuracy isn't quite there but it's getting better all the time. Besides gives us a chance to stuff the French ;D

    England women need just 1 point in their crucial final World Cup qualifier against France on 30 September to reach the 2007 finals in China.

    France's narrow 2-1 win over Austria on Saturday means that Hope Powell's side still need a draw to grab top spot in European qualifying group five.

    Defeat will mean France overtake England by virtue of a better head-to-head record.

    The match will be televised live on BBC Three from 1900 BST on Saturday.

    England have only qualified for one Women's World Cup finals, the 1995 tournament in Sweden, where they were knocked out by Germany.

    France beat England 2-0 on aggregate in a two-legged play-off for a place at the 2003 finals in the USA.

    The French are currently ranked sixth in the world, six places above England, but their recent form has been patchy.

    Their slender win over Austria - who are ranked 44th in the world - followed a draw and defeat against Canada.

    England have made one change from the squad for their 4-0 win over Holland in their penultimate qualifier in August, calling up Arsenal striker Lianne Sanderson for injured Jo Potter.

    Potter was ruled out after damaging ankle ligaments in a league win over Bristol Academy.

    "I couldn't be any more thrilled," Sanderson told the Football Association's website.

    "To be involved in the build-up to such a big game is the highlight of my career and is also reward for the coaching staff at Arsenal who have developed my game since I was a kid."

    We've been working hard on fitness and tactics

    England skipper Faye White remains on the long-term injury list.

    Powell said she felt the current crop of players had continued to improve since last summer's European Championship in England.

    "The players really matured through the experience of that tournament; the highs and lows, and preparing themselves both physically and mentally for matches," she said.

    "We give the players the chance to take responsibility for a lot that happens around the training camps but I demand a level of performance.

    "Being away from families on the road can get repetitive but whilst we try and ensure there is an element of fun to everything we do, when we get down to business, it's business."

    Experienced France striker Hoda Lataf insisted her side was ready for the match, which France have to win.

    She told Fifa's official website: "We've been working really hard on fitness and tactics."
