England head coach Tracey Neville says passion is all she will demand from her team as they gear up for the start of the netball World Cup.

Neville’s troops head to Australia looking to be crowned world champions for the first time in 14 attempts.

England have one silver medal and four bronzes to their names in the tournament but gold still remains elusive.

Standing in their way will be Jamaica, Scotland and Samoa in Pool B before they can think about taking on the usual suspects of Australia and New Zealand.

Neville took the reins with England in March and is charged with bringing a medal home from Sydney before the chance to clinch the World Cup on home soil comes around in four years time.

But she says there that the appointment was no surprise for brothers Gary and Phil – both of whom are in prominent football coaching roles – and believes she can do her family proud.

"They're massively proud but they also expect it," Neville told the BBC.

"There was an expectation that I would be England manager. They do demand a lot of me.

“But I've told the girls that I'm not a magician.

“This is about having passion and showing it on court. That's the only thing I'll ever ask of this team."
