To kick off Women’s History Month, the 2017 SheBelieves Cup was hosted in several major soccer stadiums in the east coast. The SheBelieves Cup is an invitational women’s soccer tournament that began in 2016.

This year’s tournament consisted of the U.S., Germany, France, and England – each team ranked respectively by FIFA (Fédération Internationale de Football) as first, second, third, and fifth in the world.

The tournament began on March 1st at Talen Energy Stadium in Chester, Penn; France defeated England 2-1, and the U.S. beat Germany 1-0.

The second day of the tournament was on March 4th, and featured a packed stadium of 26,500 fans at Red Bull Arena in Harrison, NJ – the largest crowd to date at a SheBelieves Cup game.

The day began with a tied game between France and Germany, and it ended with England beating the U.S. 1-0.

After a day-long goal drought, England’s Ellen White managed to score at the 89th minute after scrambling for the ball following a corner kick in U.S.’s game against England.

The tournament concluded on March 7th at RFK Stadium in Washington D.C., with Germany winning against England 1-0, and France’s 3-0 blowout against the U.S.

France managed to place 1st by finishing with a total of seven points, while Germany placed 2nd, England 3rd, and the U.S. 4th, concluding the first week in Women’s History Month.
