The Women’s World Cup

By Carolina Castrillon V. (undergraduate Economics student, level 4 English)

As we know, football is one of the most important sports in the world. Traditionally, it is played by men, but recently we have seen that women have shown increasing interest in this sport.

As the efforts of women growing in this sport have been recognised, today just like men, the best female football players receive the Golden Ball award each year. Besides this, it’s important to know that the FIFA Women’s World Cup is also held. This year this will take place in Canada, and involves 24 teams, including Colombia.

It is important that, as we supported our men in Brazil, we support our women in Canada, because these girls are also working towards a dream. They have trained hard for this world cup, and want to prove that football is not just for men.
