Product Overview

"Sure to score big with soccer fans, especially girls who play the sport themselves."
- Julie Chychota, CM Magazine

Soccer is the most popular sport for more than 350,000 Canadian girls, and their heroines and role models are the talented players profiled in Goals and Dreams: A Celebration of Canadian Women's Soccer.

Goals and Dreams is a detailed, in-depth look at how a diverse group of soccer-crazed Canadians developed into one of the world's best teams. Through unique access to the players' world--both on- and off-field--the authors reveal the passion and commitment these players have for the game and how they balance school, work and training. It follows their journey from the Edmonton Under-19 Women's World Championships-- where 50,000 fans plus a huge TV audience cheered them on--to the Women's World Cup--where they beat Argentina, Japan and China to capture fourth place--and concludes with the Under-19 World Championships held in Thailand in November 2004.

It features interviews with world-class stars like Charmaine Hooper and Christine Sinclair as well as up-and-coming teenagers like Brittany Timko, Kara Lang and Aysha Jamani. It also contains a brief history of women's soccer in Canada, as well as information on national team selection, chances for a professional career and training routines.

Goals and Dreams includes an introduction by stellar midfielder Andrea Neil, who helped the Canadian Women's soccer team to their fourth-place finish in the recent World Cup and is their longest-serving midfielder. She recently played in her one-hundredth match for Canada.
