CISM Women's Football World Championships

Recommended Posts

Yes, it is up to the local organizing committee (in this case Netherlands) to post the information. They have not updated their football information from the World Military games in India last fall on the CISM website. Two years ago when it was in the Netherlands they provided more information.

Information from my one of the participant was that Germany scored 2 goals in the first half and that Canada played a much better second half. The coaches were "pleased" with the result as the German team has National team players on their roster. A good result against France (the next opponent would get Canada into the medal round since Congo pulled out of the tournament at the last moment. Canada's only previous game against France was a 2 - 1 defeat. The French team and the Dutch team have National team players. The US team is mostly made up of women from the three military academys who have NCAA Division 1 experience. Canada's team is coached by Chad Beaulieu who is the coach at The Royal Military College of Canada in Kingston which is a CIAU member.

About the CF Women’s Soccer Program

The Canadian Forces Women’s Soccer Program consists of Regular Force and Reserve Force members who are either full or part-time. Team members’ military rank ranges from Ordinary Seaman, to Officer-Cadet to Major. The Program schedules training camps throughout the year in different parts of the country, including Kingston, Ontario & Victoria, British Columbia. The program continuously searches for CF members who are current or former CIS players to join our training. If you are currently a member of the CF and want further information contact team manager Lieutenant Cynthia Smith, Smith.CA4@forces.gc.ca.

The team continues to get stronger each year and if any young women (17 and up) is interested in the Military either Reg Force or Reserves it is a wonderful opportunity to travel and paticipate in a great sport. My daughters did not know of the program when joining the Naval Reserves. They joined because their two older brothers were in the Reserves. They have enjoyed travelling to Europe, United States and India and coming up in three years Brazil for the next World Military Games. (And I get nice football jerseys from those countries too.)

Only score I have for the Round 3 matches is France 6 Canada 0

Halftime was France 1 Canada 0, France scored again at the 60 minute mark and then scored 4 more times in the last 15 minutes. (The wheels must have fallen off the bus.)

Canada will play US for 5th place.

USA defeats Canada 1 - 0 in overtime (The goal is an own goal by Canada.)

Third place is won by Netherlands 2 - 1 over South Korea

Germany defeats France for first place 3 - 0

Except for the blowout by France who scored four goals in the final 15 minutes and the lack of scoring this was an improved Canadian performance. Obviously there is a lot of room for improvement. The team needs a goal scorer or two, but that could probably be said for most women's teams.
