While I was watching highlights from the 2014 FIFA World Cup, my 4 year old daughter asked:
"Do any girls play?"
I explained there was a separate World Cup for women.
She did not understand why.
Neither did I.
Men's and women's competitions play side by side in the Olympics, Tennis tournaments and many other sporting events.
A combined football tournament would make the World Cup even more enjoyable to watch - imagine if your country's men's and women's teams both qualified?
FIFA, for our daughters and the game, it is time to combine the men's and women's football World Cups into one international football extravaganza.
