Spain are celebrating a historic victory, while GB's women's team are playing in the Olympics for the first time this summer
Now we know who'll be kicking off at the Olympics in the GB women’s football team - the squad was named last week - it's time to get really excited about the beautiful game.
And the about-to-open National Football Museum in Manchester is a great way to find out more about the history of the sport.
The museum, opening July 6, 2012, boasts more than 140,000 historic exhibits, including a shirt from the world’s first international football match.
There's also fashion, art and photography to browse across three floors of memorabilia, stories and interactive activities. Look out for the ball from that 1966 World Cup final, plus the shirt worn by Maradona during the infamous 1986 'Hand of God' quarter-final between England and Argentina.
Director of the National Football Museum, Kevin Moore, says, 'We are delighted to be re-opening the National Football Museum at our impressive new home at Urbis in the heart of Manchester city centre.'
