Jordan relishing "huge highlight"
 Women's Football News 22 Jul 2014
 
Jordan relishing Jordan Nobbs looks set to follow her dad Keith and play at Victoria Park in Hartlepool as she joins an England squad in a pre-World Cup friendly against Sweden.

The game taking place on Sunday 3rd August is a warm up to England's last World Cup group game against Wales ahead of the World Cup in 2015 and Jordan admits it will be a good test against the team ranked fifth in the world.

"It will be massive to play such a top team at local ground will be huge for us," she says. "It's definitely a huge highlight for me as a player and I'm sure that all the northern girls will have their families there as well.

"Sweden are one of the best teams in the world and with us not playing up here in a long time then it will be great for the everyone to watch. It will be massive for us.

"Wales are probably one of the best teams in our group and it will definitely be a tough test and we can't afford to take our foot off the pedal. We want to finish top of the group and win all of our games. We will be going out for the win."

Jordan spent time at Norton and Stockton Ancients and had this to say about the Premier Northern Division side: "I spent two seasons at the team and every club I've been at has played a major part in getting to where I am. I remember playing against Lucy Bronze, who is also in the squad, and Lucy Staniforth who played for Blyth at the time.

"The amount of Northern players that have reached the high level shows how much is going on around the north east. Our game can only encourage more young girls to start to be a part of that."

Sunderland's Beth Mead recently got called up to England Under-20 World Cup squad and Jordan had this advice for her.

"I haven't spoken to her though I've played in two World Cups and it is difficult, you've just got to embrace every moment that's there and not let it get you too nervous. Just play football and forget about the occasion but she's been a really good player and I hope she does really well. Hopefully [I'll] meet her in the league next season too!"

England take on Sweden on Sunday 3rd August, kick off at 2pm. Tickets are on sale now priced at £5 for adults and £2.50 for children. They can be purchased via TheFA.com ticketing page or at the Hartlepool United ticket office.
