World Cup Soccer Stats Erase The Sport's Most Dominant Players: Women
"There are few sporting events I get as excited about as the World Cup. I played soccer in high school, in the NCAA, and for five years post-college, including two glorious years in the Golden Gate Women's League, Premier Division. What the U.S. Men's National Team has accomplished is extraordinary, with a second consecutive appearance in the knock-out round and incredible teamwork and fortitude against four formidable opponents."
I'm not much of a soccer fan, but it strikes me as significant that women's association football (aka Soccer, for us 'mericans) tracks 12 players with greater than 100 goals, while Men's association football has only 1 player with that accomplishment.
