    M/S of a team of women footballers in striped shirts. They stand and kneel in two rows, two nurses stand at either side of them. Similar shot of opposing team in white shirts with 'v' shapes on.

    M/S of the two captains shaking hands with each other and the male referee. We see them toss the coin to decide kick off. Various shots of the game.
