Ecuador coach Vanessa Arauz has named her final squad for the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup in Canada.

The Ecuadorian Football Federation (FEF) Vice President, Ing. Carlos Humberto Villacis Naranjo assured the team of the Federation’s support.

Ing. Carlos Villacis:

Although there is money for the women’s team there are no sponsors. However, the federation will continue to support the team financially and continue to support our team even more so now that they will be travelling to Canada. Travel with all the enthusiasm to make a big role in this World Cup.”

I expect us to qualify to the next stage to demonstrate that women’s football is here to stay and will continue to grow in this country.

Ing. Carlos Villacis will lead the delegation to Canada.

Vanessa Arauz:

I feel honoured and proud to name the official list of the 23 players who will be in Canada 2015. It is a difficult decision ​​after 7 training sessions. Many aspects were analysed to reach this conclusion. It was a decision not taken overnight and I was looking at the players I would need to select at every training session we had. We have a strong group but the objective is to demonstrate that Ecuador has the right to be participating in a Women’s World Cup. My dream is to become world champions because that keeps us in a very high demand. After qualifying for the World Cup, we received the support of universities and institutions where our players study and work. They needed to have their peace of mind. In addition, the financial support from the FEF also helped a lot.

New Zealand coach Tony Readings has revealed the 23-player squad for this summer’s FIFA Women’s World Cup.

Readings:

“It’s been a lengthy process which really started in 2013 when our funding and resources increased to enable us to consistently play the best teams in the world.

“What we’ve seen over the time since then is regular games against the best teams, where players are frequently tested. During that process, we’ve blooded some new and younger players so it’s been a really thorough selection process and we’ve had a chance to have a good look at players and we’re really confident we’ve picked the best 23 players.”

The squad includes 15 players who featured at the 2011 FIFA Women’s World Cup in Germany and five of those players were also part of the team which contested the 2007 tournament in China.

“Raising the experience of the players has been a massive part of our planning. It’s all been about increasing the number of caps, increasing the amount of FIFA tournament experience and also increasing the quality of the caps as well.

“Almost all of the squad have been to youth World Cups as well so we’ve got that experience to fall back on. It also shows the pathway we’ve been putting the players through during this time is seeing some benefits and rewards.

Tony Readings:

“The players coming through the U-17s and U-20s and some have played in both of those and senior World Cups. All of that accumulation of experience is going to be really important in the big moments and the big games so it’s definitely something we’ll be able to fall back on with real confidence.”

“We’ll be fine-tuning and tweaking some of the things we do. We’ve worked so hard since the start of 2013 in establishing our playing style and working on what our core vision of the team is so a lot of the hard work has been done now.

“There aren’t too many things we want to be adding at this point, it’s just making sure we can harness the strength of what we’ve worked on and just making sure we are executing the way we want to play against the different styles of opposition we will face in the group stage and beyond.

With the style, systems and squad now in place, Readings says the team can set about achieving the task they set themselves several years ago.

“We’ve had a goal ever since we started this programme about being a team capable of winning the World Cup.”

“Everything we’ve done; changing our style, getting the right number of games against the right opposition, the full time programme we’re putting the players through in New Zealand, that’s all around building so we are playing and winning seven games at a World Cup.

“There will be a lot of things that we can’t control and we won’t spend any of our valuable energy in those areas. It will all be around the processes we can do which will lead to us getting the performances we need so the outcomes take care of themselves.”

 

Norway coach Even Pellerud has named his 23 player squad for next month’s FIFA Women’s World Cup.

Australian women’s national football team coach Alen Stajcic has named his 23-player squad for the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup to be held from 6 June to 5 July 2015. 10 players are heading to their first FIFA Women’s World Cup.

Stajcic:

“We have selected a positive squad with players that have a strong belief that they can go into any game and win.”

“Over the course of the last four months the composition of this final squad has changed every week, but as always I believe ‘players pick themselves’ and the 23 players that have been selected thoroughly deserve to be in this squad and I am confident they will represent their country with distinction.

“The emphasis since we came together in January has been on expressing our Australian culture and the things this country is renowned to bring to any sporting contest, things like positivity, backing yourself and really taking it up to the opposition.

“We want to pride ourselves on a lot of these attributes that Australian teams have had for a long time, so it is about having that focus in this team and a belief that on any given day against any opponent we can come out and win.

“Considering the other teams we have in our group, it brings this philosophy into even sharper focus.”

Stajcic:

“We now have our World Cup squad finalised, and now it is left with this group to carry the torch into taking on the world’s best.”

“While it is a credit to the girls that have made it, we have achieved nothing yet as a team and there is still a lot of hard work to be done to achieve our potential.”

”This squad believes we can win against the USA and I really have faith we can do it.”

England coach Mark Sampson has named his final FIFA Women’s World Cup squad. Of the 23-player squad, only Chelsea duo Claire Rafferty and Katie Chapman did not feature in qualifying. Gemma Davison of Chelsea was surprisingly left out of Mark Sampson’s squad, announced on Monday. Another notable absentee is experienced player Anita Asante of FC Rosengård.

sam1

Mark Sampson:

I am very confident in the squad I have picked, and I thank those involved in the squad up to now. Key things were tactical flexibility, players who can play in a number of positions, and an ’emotional’ balance. This will be a “group effort.

Mark Sampson on the France game:

They are world class, but you have to beat the best. On our day we can beat anyone, but there are some big, big challenges ahead, but that’s why we’re ranked 6th in the world. This is a hugely exciting time for all the staff and players.

11706

 

Sampson:

We’re ranked sixth in the world, we are a good team and we have got some exceptional players. We’ve got a very compact, resolute unit and we have got a real togetherness in the group so we’ll certainly be a difficult opponent for anyone in Canada.

I think as a group of staff we are very clear about the direction we want to take the team in during the tournament and hopefully the players can pull together.

With this group in particular we have a large number of players who have performed very well and contributed to get this team to where it is now.

The ambition is to go to Canada and win the competition but we have got to treat every game like a final.

England captain Stephanie Houghton:

A World Cup is the pinnacle of every player’s career and we want to enjoy every moment. We worked so hard to get to the World Cup, now we just can’t wait to get started. We know we’ve got a tough group but we are prepared to go there and give it our all. It will be an honour and a privilege to lead these girls in Canada.

Nadeshiko Japan coach Norio Sasaki has announced his final 23 squad for the FIFA Women’s World Cup in Canada. The list includes MVP of the 2011 FIFA World Cup Homare Sawa. This will be Sawa’s 6th appearance in a World Cup, the most ever for any player, male or female.

sah

Sawa, 36, made her debut as a member of Nadeshiko Japan in December 1993 at only 15 years old, scoring four goals in a thumping victory over the Philippines. She won the 2011 Ballon d’Or. Sawa briefly retired in 2012 but made a return to the game with an eye on competing in Canada.

She helped Japan to win the Asian Cup last year but the midfielder was left out of the squad for the Algarve Cup in March following a number of injuries and a lack of form only for head coach Norio Sasaki to recall her. Head coach Norio Sasaki says that he expects Sawa to play a leading role for the team both on and off the field in Canada.

Sasaki

I’m counting on her to be a pillar of the team, on and off the pitch. Her qualities are necessary for the Nadeshiko right now. Let me stress that experience is not all she brings. I’m selecting her on her present form and fitness.

She has gone on to make 197 appearances for the Nadeshiko, named after a pink carnation, scoring 82 goals and also playing at four Olympics.

The record for most appearances in a World Cup by a male player is five, held by Mexico’s Antonio Carbajal, Germany’s Lothar Matthaeus and Italy’s Gianluigi Buffon. Four women have appeared in five World Cups, including U.S.A’s Kristine Lilly.

South Korea women’s national team coach Yoon Deok-yeo has announced his provisional squad of 26 players for the 2015 FIFA World Cup to be held in Canada. Yoon said the 26-player squad was the final provisional roster, and he will cut it down to 23 players after a week of training starting on May 8.

Star attacker Ji So-yun of Chelsea Ladies will lead South Korea to the World Cup in Canada. Ji So-yun of Chelsea Ladies was named the Player of the Year by the Professional Footballers Association. She received the award on Monday in London. Ji is the top goal scorer on the roster with 38 goals in 74 international matches.

Yoon had initially planned to announce his final team Thursday, but said he wanted to take extra players to the camp to foster competition within the team and to have insurance in case of injuries.

South Korea will be competing in the Women’s World Cup for only the second time, and is still seeking its maiden victory. In 2003, South Korea lost all three group matches, scoring once while giving up 10 goals in the tournament held in the United States.

This year’s tournament will kick off on June 6 in Canada. South Korea has been grouped with Brazil, Spain and Costa Rica in Group E.

Yoon said he based his picks on the players’ current form on their respective clubs, and also took into account their mental strength.

“I wanted to make sure there would be internal competition for the job at every position. I also wanted players who have passion and determination.”

Yoon stressed that South Korea’s goal is more than just to win its first World Cup match.

“Our objective is clear: we want to make it to the knockout stage. Once we get to the round of 16, then we’ll do everything we can to get to the quarterfinals.”

Ji led South Korea to a third-place finish at the 2010 FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup. She finished second in scoring with eight goals.

Joining Ji on offense is Yeo Min-ji, who led South Korea to the 2010 FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup title. Yeo was the top scorer and the MVP of that tournament, too.

Park Eun-sun, who plays for a Russian club, WFC Rossiyanka, is expected to be Ji’s partner up front.

Norway coach Even Pellerud has named his provisional squad of 35 players for the upcoming World Cup in Canada.

 

 

Pellerud had this to say:

There are many exciting names in Norwegian women’s football, and it goes without saying that it was close battle for the last places in the final squad.

Some of Pellerud’s most trusted players have struggled with injuries, but Caroline Graham Hansen, Solveig Gulbrandsen and Ingvild Stensland are all part of the team. Veteran Ingvild Stensland has not played since rupturing her anterior cruciate knee ligament in August. The Stabæk midfielder has won 129 caps for Norway.

Pellerud hopes Ingvild Stensland recovers on time for the World Cup.

I hope she gets in shape and stays fit. She will be an important player for any team.

But this is not something that worries us. We have many players who can come in to contribute. We are going to travel to Canada with a strong squad for Canada on 31st May.

Norway women’s national team’s final World Cup squad of 23 players will be presented at Ullevaal Stadion on Thursday 7th May.
