Let winter (and OK, a good chunk of spring) have its hockey, but the start of summer belongs decidedly to soccer.

FIFA Women's Cup 2015 has been in full swing across Canada since last weekend, and the women of Team Canada are showing themselves to be the national heroes we already knew they were.

With a 1-0 win in the World Cup opener — thanks to a goal at the 92-minute mark by Christine Sinclair — the team is set to play New Zealand on Thursday, and then face off against the Netherlands on Monday. As to whether that looming U.S.-Canada match-up will come, we'll have to wait and see.

After their stellar playing during the 2012 Olympics, Canada's women's soccer team proved they're more than worthy of our attention. So who are these women taking centre stage in the nation's spotlight once again?
