2015 FIFA Women's World Cup qualification
While the world watched the Americans wade through qualifying for their appearance to a women's world cup, other qualifying games were underway. The UEFA play-offs and the commencement conclusion of the African Women's Championships.
The following a summary of those matches.
The Play-offs will decide the last place in FIFA World Cup from UEFA. The teams with the best second place record are Netherlands, Scotland, Italy and Ukraine.
Each team will play 2 legs in a semifinal berth to determine which two teams will play in the finals, which will also be played over two legs.
The arrival of the Trinidad and & Tobago Women's Football Team to the USA to participate in the 2014 CONCACAF Women's Championship has been marred with controversy.
It began from the team's late appearance in Dallas, as there was a delay of four days, in them securing the necessary funds to pay for visa applications for team members. It was only with the release from the TTFA of TT$40,000 that they were able to travel to the United States. The team's lack of funds and equipment left their coach, American-born Randy Waldrum no choice but to take to twitter for an open appeal for help.
He released three separate tweets after the team's arrived with a mere US$500 dollars and no accommodations, food or travel plans secured. Immediately the word spread throughout the world and in mere hours the soccer community started to come through.
After receiving no response or acknowledgement from either FIFA or Canadian Soccer Association about their grievances, the world female soccer elite submitted on October 1, through their lawyers papers to the Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario in Toronto, stating to the effect that the World Cup organizers are violating Section 1 of Canada’s human rights code, which states that “every person has a right to equal treatment with respect to services, goods and facilities, without discrimination.”
