Maple Leaf Forever! - Canadian 2019 Women’s World Cup Preview Part 2: The Big Picture

Recommended Posts

The 2015 Women’s World Cup had some teams that really didn’t belong. How well we remember results like Germany 10-0 Ivory Coast, or Switzerland 10-1 Ecuador, or Cameroon 6-0 Ecuador. Ecuador was really bad. But it’s 2019, women’s soccer has developed for four years, and Ecuador didn’t qualify. Instead we have Chile, and Jamaica, and Thailand and Cameroon are back!

Fans in France will get to enjoy some hilarious blowouts, making all those Ligue 1 Féminin fans feel at home.

Usefully previewing a whole 24-team women’s soccer tournament is impossible. How’s Thailand’s depth at fullback? Any writer not actually Thai will neither know nor care. In the men’s World Cup even bad teams have a few guys playing in the Eredivisie or something so you’ll know a guy who’s seen him on DAZN or at least have a good, instinctive feel for the level? The Women’s World Cup does not play that way.

The rate of development is a testament to the value of coaching.

Or of women's soccer getting more popular and drawing from a larger sample of the population.
