Canada opens with a 1-0 win against China.

I never watched soccer before as I was terrified when playing as a child. Everyone yelling and having to simultaneously avoid the ball and appear to be engaging it.

But 40 years later and I can appreciate that it is a beautiful game.

The winning goal was a penalty kick by Christine Sinclair, who, I think, is very good.

Womens' football/soccer has many qualities that the men can learn from.The women don't fall about like 'dying swans'
when they're tackled and they respect the referees.
