Canada Soccer’s Women’s National Team will return to the Algarve Cup, Portugal to defend its 2016 title with a squad blending experience and youth. The 24th edition of the invitational 2017 Algarve Cup will take place from 1 to 8 March. Canada faces Denmark on 1 March, Russia on 3 March, and hosts Portugal on 6 March, with the final match scheduled for 8 March.
“This tournament will be our first opportunity to play consecutive competitive fixtures since the 2016 Rio Olympics and a chance to get our whole squad back together. The focus will be on winning the tournament, by firstly shaking off some rust and then pushing to recreate the tactical cohesion and off-field chemistry we saw in Rio,” said Head Coach John Herdman.
