World Cup Soccer

World Cup Soccer, When women line the United States national team against France in the semifinals on Wednesday the Women’s World Cup, which could well be looking at the future of women’s football. And the future could be very different from anything I’ve done before.
The American team is in many ways; pleasantly familiar to those who might have taken a nap for 12 years for women’s football. As U.S. women 1999, 2011 women are strong, ferocious, are athletic, and his will to win can be measured on the Richter scale.
So raw and visceral determination goalkeeper only hope that seems to need to keep in a cage between the parties.
In France, however, the U.S. faces a competitive team with a completely different DNA. Aspiring artists in the true French tradition – sculptors of the objectives, the divas of the defense.
And of all the events in a World Cup-and historic, this is certainly one of the best: The hegemony of a few teams that dominate the game is waning as more countries around the world embrace women’s football. As a result, a new class of countries has the opportunity to make their mark on the sport, more so the heady potpourri of national styles of men’s soccer seasons in women’s football, too.
Both semi-finals on Wednesday face the old compared to the new order.
In the game No. 1, U.S. represents the robust style that has dominated women’s football since the start of the World Cup in 1991 – a kind of Darwinism of football in which only the installer, faster, stronger and more prosperous. The French style, in some respects is a repudiation of that worldview, slowing the action and looking to open up opposing defenses for subtler and more on the ball skills.
In Game No. 2, traditional energy Sweden will play the old guard, the opposition of upstart Japan, which is undoubtedly the most technically competent team in the women’s game.
Wednesday is a potential hinge point in the women’s soccer – a time when the teams playing in a way unknown to the women’s game could revoke that have set the standard for more than a generation.
Brazil’s revolution started eight years ago when the sport was introduced to the samba football, where football becomes a carnival of 90 minutes. Japan took a step further when it ousted world No. 1 in Germany in the quarterfinals last week. And now France and Japan will try to complete the revolution and become the last team standing.
Even if they fall short, this tournament has set the stage for the coming changes. It marked the end of an era beat down when less tournament teams took to the field essentially to “kick me” signs stuck to the back and the only hope of avoiding scoreline may invoke the “mercy rule” in Little League Baseball.
