The recent scandal involving FIFA, the Fédération Internationale de Football Association might be leading newscasts, but it should not overshadow the 2015 FIFA Women'?s World Cup Games about to begin in Canada. While America was late to the game of soccer, it continues to grow in popularity. And the success of the US Women?'s National Team has done much to win-over new fans. Here to talk about women?'s soccer programs in the United States, give us a preview of the World Cup and look at the US team?'s prospects, are Woody Sherwood, head coach for Xavier University'?s women?s soccer team; Bobby Puppione, girls director of coaching for the Cincinnati United Premier, part of the Cincinnati United Soccer Club;  and, WVXU reporter and soccer player and fan, Tana Weingartner.
