Canada came away with a 1:0 victory in its second group stage match of the 2018 Algarve Cup after featuring a different lineup from its opening match.  Playing a 3-5-2 formation with Christine Sinclair and Jordyn Huitema on the front line, Canada dominated their opponent with an aggressive attack up the sidelines.

Canada's lone goal was scored in the 25th minute after Huitema was pulled down in the box by Russian captain Anna Zozhnikova.  Canada’s captain and all-time goals leader Sinclair made no mistake by drilling the ball low into the corner. It was Sinclair’s first goal of the tournament and the 170th of her international goal, putting her only 14 behind the all-time women’s international goalscoring record.
