Last summer, football fever gripped the nation and England's national Men's team held the country's hopes in their hands – even daring us to dream that World Cup glory was possible.

This summer, England's women are hoping to inspire similar scenes, when the Lionesses go for World Cup glory themselves, in France.

The Calendar region Lionesses:

  • Rachel Daly, from Harrogate
  • Millie Bright, from Killamarsh
  • Jade Moore, from Dinnington
  • Beth Mead, from Hinderwell near Whitby
  • Lucy Staniforth, from York

Five of the 23-strong squad are from our part of the world, and they've been speaking to our Sports Reporter Chris Dawkes, who sent this from the FA's National Football Centre, St George's Park.
