All the waiting and speculation and guesswork can at last be put to an end–the 2015 Women’s World Cup is finally here.
As always, the hosts nation kicks off the action, and this year that just so happens to be one of the most compelling teams in the tournament. Canada was embarrassed at the 2011 World Cup, scoring just one goal and dropping all three matches. But if there was a silver lining, that led to the hiring of John Herdman, who quickly turned things around and led his team to a gold medal at the 2011 Pan American Games and bronze medal at the 2012 Olympics.
Now, armed with one of the most dangerous players in the game in captain Christine Sinclair, as well as a bevy of talented Robins to her Batman, Canada looks prepared to make a deep run in front of its home nation.
That will begin against China, who is coming off a dreadful showing at the 2015 Algarve Cup and shouldn’t offer much resistance in the tournament’s opener.
The game begins 6 p.m. ET on June 6 and will air on Fox Sports 1. But if you aren’t around a TV, we’ve got you covered.
