UEFA Women’s Euro : Finland 2009

There was a Women’s European Championships? And it just got concluded yesterday? I know that women’s soccer is big in some countries and even the US (as compared to the men’s version) but this is surprising as I haven’t heard a peep outta this event..until now! I usually don’t watch or follow women’s football and even you held a gun to my head, I couldn’t tell you a women’s footballer name other than Mia Hamm. And she’s retired!

Anyways, the event was held in Finland from August 23rd till the 10th of September. Four cities – Helsinki, Turku, Lampere & Lahti – played host to the 12 competing nations and the finals were held in the Finnish capital of Helsinki. Germany won the tournament for the 7th time in the last 10 years, beating England 6-2. Norway pipped Holland for the 3rd place.
