Why is the Women's World Cup still sweating misogyny?
15:01 Friday 28th June 2019

Comparison is the thief of joy, at least that’s what Theodore Roosevelt said.  Can this theory be applied to women’s football? Should we compare the Lionesses with Southgate’s Lions? Or the current World Cup with…

Play time over for the women at France 19
15:01 Monday 17th June 2019

It's Nikita Parris' time
17:00 Saturday 15th June 2019

15:00 Wednesday 12th June 2019

What does the USWNT's 13-0 rout of Thailand say about the Women's World Cup?

Can the Canadian women make some noise in France?
15:00 Tuesday 4th June 2019

If asked to name a football team who’ve dominated their competition for the past quarter-century, you might need a minute. Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain are newly risen. Bayern Munich and Juventus still have work to do to make…

09:00 Tuesday 4th June 2019
