Great coverage of women football by Tim, as always.

Bjorn

Just to add regarding shirt numbers; for Sweden Lina will wear number 8, Stina 11 and Amanda 13.

Stonks

Which club is the most represented in the world cup?

Collibosher

Sadly, there will be huge Williamson, Mead and Miedema-shaped holes there, too.

Fun Gunner

Thanks very much for breaking this down, Tim. I’m getting so excited about this – just two weeks to go!

Billy bob

Shame there isn’t any Germany players at arsenal, Pop for instance would be great

Chrishgooner

Yeah. Could get Jen to do the welcome Popp video.

Ricky

Tim, Kuhl’s given name is “Kathrine” instead of “Katherine”.

PeteyB

It took my brain too long to figure out what Tim Krul had to do with anything here…. I think I should go back to bed.

Arsepedant

Wow, FIFTEEN of them! And it would be eighteen if Williamson, Mead, and Miedema were fit. What a squad we have!
