England boss Mark Sampson says he is 'excited' about the World Cup 2015 after his side were drawn with France, Colombia and Mexico in Group F.
Sampson's side will open against world number four France in Moncton on 9 June and he believes their opponents will prove to be a "big challenge".
England's best World Cup performance is the quarter-final finish they achieved in 1995, 2007 and last time out in 2011.
