Alex Scott believes England can win the Women’s World Cup in Canada.
The Three Lions have reached the quarter-finals on three occasions but were knocked out by Germany, the United States and France as they struggled to cope with the top sides.
England have a tough group this time around, playing against France on June 9 before facing Colombia and Mexico, but Scott is confident the squad have enough quality to beat the best teams in the world.
"Our preparation has been spot-on so we are well-equipped to go far in this tournament"
“We are going into the tournament like every other team, thinking that this could be our year,” she said. “That has to be the aim otherwise why would we go over there?
“We will have our work cut out in the group but I think our preparation has been spot-on so we are well-equipped to go far in this tournament.
“I think the squad is as good as we have so we are confident,” Scott added. “In every area we have youth, experience and quality which will be crucial in such a high-profile tournament.
“We have played the top two teams in the world, Germany and the USA, in recent times, as well as winning the Cyprus Cup again. From our learning and what we have within the squad, we can trouble the best.”
