It is also the story of the teams, from more than 130 countries--from perennial powerhouses such as the USA, China, and Germany, to emerging headliners such as Canada, Brazil, and Sweden to a growing list of talented newcomers from countries fielding women's teams for the first time. And it is the story of the international competitions, from the Olympic Games to the Women's World Cup, that have served as proving grounds for some splendid athletes and terrific teams. With skill, determination, and love of the sport, women's soccer teams and the extraordinary people behind them have overcome limited resources and even official banning, and have won the respect and enthusiasm of adoring fans all over the world.
