Canada Women's National Soccer Team Schedule
There is no better time than now to jump on the Canada Women's National
Soccer Team's bandwagon as they will be the host team of the 2015 FIFA Women's World Cup. Although the host team always qualifies
for the World Cup, Canada will still be looking to pile up wins and enter the tournament on a hot streak.
24th, BC Place Stadium in Vancouver is the center of the Canadian soccer universe as Canada will host Mexico in a CONCACAF
World Cup qualifier. Mexico will be playing their hearts out to represent their country and get one step closer to earning
a berth in the 2015 World Cup. At the same time Canada will be looking to prove their dominance in CONCACAF and establish
themselves alongside the United States as one of the premiere teams in the region as well as to put on a show for their homeland
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 2013 and 2014 and into the 2015 World Cup.
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.
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 games.
Canada Women's National Soccer Team Trivia
Canada Women's National Soccer Team possesses winning records against all but a handful of teams around the world but by far
their most impressive record is a 17-1-1 record against CONCACAF foe Mexico. Christine Sinclair who has been with the national
team since 2000 is the all time leading goal scorer, currently with 146, and that is more than double the total of 71 achieved
by Charmaine Hooper who is number two on the all time goal scoring list. You can count on Sinclair adding to her impressive
total as she is still captain of the national team and has plenty more Caps to come before she hangs up her cleats.The Canadian
record of 4-3-11 in the World Cup is something that will surely be improved upon come 2015 when they will be playing at home
and will be looking to make it out of the group stage for the first time since 2003 when they finished fourth.
