[WOMEN'S WORLD CUP 2015 QUALIFYING] Qualifying for the 2015 Women's World Cup in Canada has begun in Europe, where 42 teams are competing for eight spots in the expanded finals.

Germany, which won its sixth straight European title in July, opened play Saturday with a 9-0 demolition of Russia, a team it had faced at Euro 2013.

It got three goals in four minutes midway through the first half and cruised to an easy win thanks to goals from seven different players.

England got a hat trick from Karen Carney in the first 40 minutes and went on to beat Belarus, 6-0,  in Bournemouth. Brent Hills is England's interim coach while the search for a successor to continues.

Coming off the disappointment of semifinal loss to Germany at home in Euro 2013, Pia Sundhage's Sweden opened with a 2-0 win over Poland, which started former U.S. U-20 Nikki Krzysik.

Florida State's Megan Campbell started for Ireland in its 2-0 win over Slovakia. Seminole teammate Dagny Brynjarsdottir was called up for Iceland's game against Switzerland on Thursday.

France under new coach Philippe Bergeroo, the former international keeper, begins play Wednesday at Kazakhstan. The match is one of 13 midweek qualifiers in Europe.
