Post #1 of 2
Posting this here as Team GB only entered the Women's competition.
12 teams play in the competition proper:
3 from Europe
2 from N America
2 from Asia
1.5 S. America
The 1.5s are 1 direct qualifier plus a play-off winner.
The 3 European teams have been settled as Netherlands, Sweden and GB&NI. The Oceania team are New Zealand (surprise!) and the direct qualifier from South America is Brazil. The South American representative in the play-off is Chile.
I've no idea how qualification is being done for the other 3 regions.
The GB team will be England with the addition of any players from the 3 other countries who get selected and whose FAs allow them to play. So far I've heard that Scotland are saying they don't support Team GB but won't prevent players from playing if selected.
The really big news, other than the parochial thing of Team GB being allowed in, is that defending champions Germany haven't qualified. They would have made it if they'd beaten Sweden in their WWC quarter final
Cambridge City - on a tour of places we've never heard of and can't spell.
