England Announce Women's World Cup Squad In Brilliant Fashion

England's squad for the Women's World Cup in France was announced today and enlisted the help of a whole host of big names from the world of sport, music and TV.

Instead of simply announcing the squad in its entirety, each player was revealed one-by-one through a personal message.

It kicked off with a royal announcement from Prince William, who congratulated captain Steph Houghton - before the likes of David Beckham, Alex Scott, Jordan Pickford, Raheem Sterling, Ian Wright, James Corden, Emma Watson, Ellie Goulding and Alan Shearer did their bit.

After the brilliantly innovative method, the squad Phil Neville has picked was released in full:

England begin their campaign against Scotland on 9 June and have been paired in Group D with Argentina and 2011 winners Japan.
