Does my bum look big in this tournament?

FIFA Women's World Cup China 2007

Today (Sunday) saw the draw for the FIFA Women's World Cup, which takes place in China [as every tournament seems to nowadays] later this year.

England have been given a tough group, as they open against 9th ranked Japan. Next up for our ladies are the current holders and 2nd ranked Germany. Argentina complete Englands Group A games.

USA - currently ranked 1st in the world - head a very tough looking Group B. They are drawn against Sweden, North Korea and Nigeria - who are ranked 4th, 5th and 24th respectively.

The two remaining groups look a bit mediocre in comparision, with Norway [3rd] favourites to win Group C, and a decidely average Group D could be anyones.
