Since the Lionesses qualified for the World Cup last August, BBC Sport's cameras have exclusively followed the squad in their preparations for this summer. The one-hour BBC One documentary highlights a trip to Qatar for a Lioness training camp and captures the raw emotion as the 2019 Lionesses lifted their first trophy, the SheBelieves Cup in America.
This film is an opportunity to get to know much more about the Lionesses ahead of the tournament and hear more about their inspirational back stories. Time is spent with Lucy Bronze who explains what life is like at one of the top clubs in the world, Olympique Lyonnaise, Millie Bright goes back to her old school to meet the pupils there and Jill Scott returns to her hometown of Sunderland. The cameras also follow Phil Neville to the World Cup draw in Paris and we see how he copes with the challenges of selecting who goes to France whilst instilling a genuine belief that England can win the World Cup. Steering us through this emotional and inspiring documentary is former Lioness Alex Scott.
Sarah Mulkerrins will be presenting our Women's World Cup coverage on BBC World Service across France for the duration of the tournament. With insight and analysis from former international footballers and journalists from across the globe on Sportsworld, plus discussion and interviews from World Football's Mani Djazmi, Heather O'Reilly, Pat Nevin and Peter Odemwingie.
BBC Scotland’s World Cup Documentary will tell you everything you need to know about the Scotland team and their chances ahead of the World Cup.
The film pieces together the players’ humble beginnings and how they came to be part of the footballing elite. Featuring Kim Little, Erin Cuthbert and Shelley Kerr, we get to the heart of who the team are and what makes the Scotland Squad tick.
In their own words, we follow the team’s journey through the highs and lows of qualification, reliving the games; the goals; the saves; the inspirations and the moment of qualification when the squad made history.
The programme celebrates the women’s game, paralleling the journey to qualification with the changing landscape of women’s football. We look at what it once was, what it is now and what it will be for all the girls watching the World Cup with a dream of playing football.
BBC Alba will bring full coverage of all three of Scotland’s group games with BBC Radio Scotland also offering live commentary. Radio coverage is presented by Richard Gordon and Willie Miller with some special guests offering thoughts.
