BBC Sport - Women's Sport Week: Meet the female Denis Law, Sylvia Gore

Sylvia Gore - the female Denis Law

England's women get their World Cup campaign under way next week with big crowds expected to watch their games in Canada.

But women's football hasn't always been accepted - for 50 years it was banned by the FA in England.

As part of our series for Women's Sports Week, former England international Rachel Brown-Finnis meets Sylvia Gore who played through the ban and scored in a win over Scotland in 1972.
