Last week, FIFA took centre stage in the world media for all the wrong reasons. This week, the beautiful game will rely on its most beautiful players to re-focus attention on the sport itself. That means eyes of the soccer world will be on Canada for the entirety of the 2015 Women's World Cup, which starts on June 6 with a pair of matches in Edmonton and culminates on July 5 in Vancouver.

FIFA omitted Sinclair from its shortlist of players named for the female player of the year award. The Canadian soccer captain has influenced a whole generation of girls and boys who want to achieve what she has done. There is no trophy or accolade that, none that can measure her effect on Canadian soccer. So no, FIFA, your awards probably mean nothing to her.

2012-07-25-olympicbanner.png Well, another Olympiad has come and gone, and for the XXXth consecutive quadrennium, Canada somehow failed to top the medal count. But cheer up!

2012-07-25-olympicbanner.pngMonday's Canada vs. the States soccer game was so good it made you forget you were watching women's soccer, or care (if you did). Too often, female athletes have to fight for airtime, and for recognition. It shouldn't be like that, but sports are sexist in nature. We're all guilty of slighting female athletes. So, thank God for Monday, because we can't now. Compared to this, Usain Bolt's thrilling 9.63 seconds was like a warmup to something better.
