Football is a demanding physical sport usually associated with men. The men’s game has been in place for over a century and has produced some of the world’s highest paid athletes. The women’s game didn’t evolve much later. The first FIFA Women’s World Cup was held in 1991 while it was only introduced in the Olympics in 1996. Despite the obvious gap, women’s football has started to gain steam in the 21st century, thanks mainly to female athletes who aren’t just good football players but beautiful women as well. These beautiful creatures have helped women’s football make its mark in the international scene as well as the professional level.
