I will never forget my 6 year old daughter asking me if it was ok for her to play football, because "on the tv it's only boys". Sad eh? And proof that we still have a long, long way to go.
There are a number of football books available but few focus on girls so we've picked out our favourites about this World Cup, female players and football fiction books with a female main character.
And congratulations to the England team for beating Norway 3-0! England will now play in the semi-final on Tuesday 2nd July.
You can see further games as they're announced over on the FIFA website.
