Canada Women's National Soccer Team Schedule
Only the best women's soccer players in the county of Canada are named
to the Canadian Women's National team, so that means that every time this team takes to the field they're putting elite athletes
in front of the fans to showcase what they can do. The Canada Women's National Soccer Team is poised to make a deep run in
the 2015 World Cup, especially since they will be playing at home in front of their feverish fans. Forward Christine Sinclair,
the captain of the team, will lead the way and the experience she has earned from 1999 Caps, alongside her 146 career goals
will surely come in handy as Canada squares off against some of the best competition in the world. Coach John Herdman need
not have too much too worry about should offense somehow come in short supply as Canada has a stalwart defense led by fullback
Rhian Wilkinson and goalkeeper Karina LeBlanc. Big things are clearly in store for the Canadian side as they look to carry
the momentum from their 2012 Olympic bronze medal right through to the 2015 World Cup.
The Canadian team will take to
the field at BC Place Stadium in Vancouver on October 28th to take on Japan in what should be a fantastic matchup. The Japanese
team is looking strong, and the Canadians are going to have their hands full with this talented squad. This game can be seen
as a tune-up for the World Cup, and if Canada can emerge vicious it should give the team some great momentum heading into
the biggest soccer event in the world. Check out the full team schedule to see when else they hit the field.
Confederation of North, Central American and Caribbean Association Football, or CONCACAF as it is usually called,
was formed in 1961 and became one of the six continental governing bodies acknowledged by FIFA. On the women's side so far
the United States is the only country to have won the Olympics, the World Cup, and the Algarve Cup, the three major competitions
in women's international soccer. The Canada Women's National Soccer Team is looking to stake their claim to the top spot in
CONCACAF and are well on their way based on their impressive showing in the 2012 Olympics and the fact that they will have
the benefit of home field advantage in the 2015 World Cup. It appears as though the Canadian women are on the verge of causing
a power shift in CONCACAF and you have the chance to witness it in person by checking out the Women's National Team's home
There are few events as exciting as seeing a national soccer team compete at home
against another country. The women on the team have trained their whole lives to be named to the squad and now that they finally
have the opportunity to represent their country and play with and against the best soccer players in the world they are determined
not to let either their country or their teammates down. Soccer is the most popular sport in the world and gives birth to
the most fervent and dedicated fans. One step into a stadium when the local national team is playing and you will understand
what all of the fuss is about. Unrelenting action, otherworldly footwoork, stunning slide tackles, and mind blowing, acrobatic
saves by goalkeepers will have you seeing exactly why soccer is referred to as "the beautiful game." You will be chanting
and singing along and barely even need to use your seat as move after move will have you jumping up and cheering for the home
country. Perhaps at no other time will you have felt so proudly to cheer for Canada and felt patriotism as deeply as when
you are in the stadium with thousands of fellow Canadians cheering on the women's national team.
