Women's World Cup 1999

I had found the World Cup in 1994 to be exciting and expected the Women's World Cup to offer just as much fun...I was not disappointed.

I attended the opening day at Giants Stadium, with a crowd of 78,972, for a double-header USA v Denmark and Brazil v Mexico...Mia Hamm's response to the day was "The crowd was awesome, the noise was unbelievable.."

For the US Mia Hamm would score in the 17th minute, followed by Julie Foudy and Kristine Lilly for a 3-0 victory...

Pretinha and Sissi each scored 3 goals to lead Brazil over Mexico 7-1...

Just as with the Men's World Cup in 1994, games were played all over the US...Giants Stadium, NJ; Soldier Field, Chicago, Il; Foxboro Stadium, Mass; Stanford Stadium, Palo Alto, Ca; Rose Bowl, Pasadena, Ca.; Civic Stadium, Portland, Or; Spartan Stadium, San Jose, Ca.; Cooke Stadium, Landover, Md.
