Women's World Cup: bigger, better – but still treated as the poor relation

Women's World Cup: bigger, better – but still treated as the poor relation

The prize money is a tiny sliver of what the men get – and games have been played on artificial turf. Should Fifa divert more money to the women’s game? Whoever wins the Women’s World Cup on Sunday will receive a $2m cash prize from Fifa. It’s a handsome reward for a job well done at the highest level. That is, unless it’s put into a broader context: when the German men won the World Cup in Brazil last year, they were given $35m.

Women’s World Cup 2015: our top five players of the tournament

England’s Lucy Bronze leads the parade as we pick out the performers who have lit up the Women’s World Cup in Canada The Manchester City right-back began Canada 2015 fresh from fairly major knee surgery and as very much a squad player. She played the first game, against France, on the left of midfield but then captured her preferred position from Alex Scott. Not content with merely defending superbly, the 23-year-old who spent her early childhood living on Holy Island, or Lindisfarne, off the north Northumberland coast, also scored a spectactular long-range winner against Norway in the round of 16 and registered a vital quarter-final header against Canada . No wonder they are talking about the dawn of “The Bronze Age” in English women’s football. Mark Sampson, England’s coach says she is the best right-back in the world. Continue reading...
