The China PR women's national football team represents the People's Republic of China in international women's association football.[1] It is governed by the Chinese Football Association (CFA). The team is colloquially referred to as "Team China" (中国队), the "National Team" (国家队) or "Guózú" (国足, short for 国家足球, which means "national football").

Records[edit]

China had held the record of going for 442 minutes without conceding a World Cup goal, until it was broken by Germany on September 26, 2007, when Germany beat Norway 3-0 in the semi-finals of the FIFA Women's World Cup 2007.[2]
