This year’s FIFA Women’s World Cup saw more mainstream coverage and general excitement surrounding it than perhaps any women’s football event of the past hundred years. Whilst countries like the USA have historically been lightyears ahead in their appreciation of women’s football, it’s taken other parts of the world like Europe and South America some time to catch up. However, it looks like 2019 might have been the year to kick off a global love for the women’s beautiful game, with teams from France, the Netherlands and England giving the US a run for their money in the finals.
