A trio of West Ham United Women’s stars have put their penalty skills to the test ahead of their involvement at the upcoming World Cup.
Scotland’s Jane Ross, Canada’s Adriana Leon and Cho So-hyun of Korea Republic and could well be faced with the pressure of a shoot-out in France.
In preparation for the tournament, West Ham United Women’s partners, ZO Skin Health, challenged members of the team to take part in a global penalty shoot-out challenge.
Players from Europe took on stars from the Rest of the World in a bid to determine which side could hold their nerve in a traditional penalty showdown.
Ross was joined by Lucienne Reichardt, Alisha Lehmann, Leanne Kiernan and Rosie Kmita on the European side, while Cho and Leon linked up with Brooke Hendrix, Erin Simon and Brianna Visalli for the Rest of the World.

The session could certainly prove to be useful to the Hammers’ World Cup stars, with penalty shoot-outs in play from the round of 16 onwards.
Ross faces a difficult task to get out of Group D with Scotland, but Leon should make progress with Canada from Group E.
Ria Percival, who was absent from the challenge, will face Leon with New Zealand in the opening stage, while Cho will feature in the first match against France on June 7.
The latter pair will fancy their chances of reaching the last 16, although they may need to rely on being one of the four best third-placed teams who make it through.
