126px-England_crest_2009.svgEngland_Women's_Vs_USA_(16365773538)If you love soccer like I do, you may enjoy this blog.  I am beginning with England’s women’s team who are playing in FIFA’s World Cup.  Canada is hosting the countries who qualified.

England have qualified for the FIFA Women’s World Cup four times (1995, 2007, 2011, 2015) and failed to qualify for three competitions (1991, 1999, 2004). The England team have reached the quarter final stage on three occasions, losing out to Germany in 1995, the United States in 2007 and France on penalties in 2011.
