Scroll over the graphic above for the starting 22, and hedge your bets on the final score by tweeting us at @ELLEUK.

Our commentary? We know those Brailizan gals have strength, but we reckon our speed and scrappiness could just about edge it...

After all, athletic Adriana Lima would have pace, but we bet even she wouldn't want to get caught up in a tackle with Naomi Campbell.

Plus, Cara Delevingne would have the best goal celebration. Ever.
