It's World Cup time again, except this time it's not being hosted in a Kleptocracy and Canada's in it so I'm really looking forward to it. I think we had fun four years ago.
If you're looking for coverage to read the Guardian's Football writing looks as good as it always is. I haven't started going through them yet but hopefully the team guides to help me not be completely ignorant (outside of Canada). They seem like a good place to start if you want to start following things. Wikipedia's also the easiest place to go to see the groups, schedule, squads, and stuff.
What are y'all looking forward to?
I'm disappointed Denmark failed to qualify again because I like Nadia Nadim. England and Scotland in the same group will hopefully be fun. I'm also hopeful Canada can go on a run. It would be fantastic if Christine Sinclair could score 4+ goals in the tournament and become the leading goal-scorer of all-time on a big stage. Still can't believe she's never been Women's Player of the Year.
I was tempted to make Sinclair the Hero Image again but figured that would be selfish. So in keeping with the Star Player on the Host Team thing last time around your Hero is France captain Amandine Henry.
