The German national team is the most successful European team in women's soccer. The team played their first international match in 1982 as West Germany, and became the country's national team after the unification of Germany in 1990. During the 1990's the team dominated the European scene and has continued to do so. They have won an unprecedented eight out of eleven European Championships and have won the last six titles consecutively.
Their European success, however, did not translate to World Cup success, and the team missed out on the coveted World Championship in 1995, when they finished as runners up. However, the 2000s brought a change of fortune, and the Germans won their first World Cup in 2003. They became the first nation in history to retain the World Cup, when they won the 2007 edition as well. The two wins tied them with the USA as the most successful nations in the women's soccer. The team has also won three bronze medals at the Olympics which they also won consecutively in 2000, 2004 and 2008.
Germany's star striker is Birgit Prinz who many people consider to be one of the best players in the world. She is the team's all-time leading goal scorer and holds the record for making the most number of appearances for the team. Prinz has won the prestigious FIFA World Player of the Year award three times and is the joint overall top goal scorer at the Women's World Cup.
Coming up against the dominant Germans will be the Canadian national soccer team. Canada has had mixed fortunes in the sport and did not qualify for the first edition of the World Cup. They did not go past the group stage in the next two editions either. However, the team rose to international prominence with a memorable campaign at the 2003 World Cup, which ironically, Germany won. The Canadian's reached the semi finals of the tournament and secured fourth place. This has been their best campaign to date.
The Canadians qualified for their first Olympics in 2008 and made it to the quarterfinals. They finally achieved an Olympic medal at the 2012 games when they secured a bronze medal following a 1-0 victory over France. The team is also a two-time CONCACAF Women's Gold Cup winner.
Germany are a much better team than Canada on paper. But the Canadians have the advantage of playing on their home turf, in front of their fans. So this game evenly poised and it will be interesting to see which team comes out on top.
