MOST COMMENTED

Only three of the 16 teams at the 2007 Women's World Cup were head-coached by women: Germany (Silvia Neid), England (Hope Powell) and China (Marika Domanski-Lyfors). Germany's title win marked the second time a female coach won the Women's World Cup. Tina Theune-Meyer guided Germany to 2003 World Cup title while assisted by Neid, who took the helm in July 2005. Third-place USA had an all-male coaching staff: Greg Ryan, assisted by Bret Hall, Phil Wheddon and Billy McNicol.
