Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Canada women's national soccer team is overseen by the Canadian Soccer Association. The team reached its all-time high of 6th in the March 2011 rankings. The team reached international prominence finishing in 4th place at the FIFA Women's World Cup 2003, losing to their archrival American team in the bronze medal match. The women's game is quite popular in Canada due to the success the team has had internationally. The Under-20 women's team is also very popular, due partly to Canada hosting the inaugural FIFA U-19 Women's World Championship in 2002 and winning silver in front of 47,784 fans at Commonwealth Stadium in Edmonton, Alberta. In the first two women's world youth championships, both with an age limit of 19 as opposed to today's 20, the Golden Boot winner was a Canadian: Christine Sinclair in 2002 and Brittany Timko in 2004. Sinclair also won the 2002 Golden Ball as tournament MVP.show more
