England captain Steph Houghton said: “talkSPORT’s coverage of the tournament will be another great boost for the game and a surefire way to get fans backing the team at home and abroad.

“We’ll be giving everything to make the country proud and inspire football fans across the world.”


Sawyer said: “A wealth of talkSPORT talent will be covering this World Cup and I’m incredibly excited to be at the heart of it.

“With England set to be strong contenders, this fiesta of football promises to capture the imagination of the country in the same way that the men’s tournament did last summer.
