Canada defeats Korea Republic 3-0 in final Algarve Cup group stage match

Canada Soccer’s Women’s National Team defeated Korea Republic 3:0 in final Algarve Cup group stage match, with Captain Christine Sinclair and Jessie Fleming scoring for Canada.  Sinclair earned her 171st and 172nd international goals, putting her now only 12 goals back from the world record, while Jessie Fleming earned her fifth goal on the occasion of her 50th appearance.

“Overall, we are happy with Canada’s performance,” said Head Coach Kenneth Heiner-Møller. “Tonight we demonstrated the kind of intensity and level of play we expect of ourselves, so this was a better match,  but we were building towards it and I think it shows that this team continues to be a real force.  This tournament is about getting ready for the CONCACAF Women’s Championships later this year, to qualify for the FIFA Women’s World Cup. We’ve had the opportunity to work on some things that are really going to benefit us moving through this year.  Now, we will wait to see who we play in our final match, but I am really pleased.”


Canada beats Russia 1-0 in second Algarve Cup group stage match

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.

The U.S. Women's National Team opened its 2018 SheBelieves Cup run with a strong 1-0 win against No. 2 FIFA-ranked Germany in front of 14,591 fans on a cold, rainy Thursday night at MAPFRE Stadium. The win against Germany was the USA's third in as many SheBelieves Cup appearances, with the WNT previously defeating the Europeans 2-1 in the inaugural 2016 tournament and 1-0 in 2017.

Germany had some good opportunities early in the game, putting USA goalkeeper Alyssa Naeher to work often. However, it was the USA that found its groove and struck first. Megan Rapinoe opened the scoring with a nice finish on an Alex Morgan assist in the 17th minute for the 1-0 lead early in the half.

The score line remained 0-0 until the dwindling minutes of the first half when Sweden jumped on a loose ball in a scramble in front of Canada’s net and put the ball past a sprawling Stephanie Labbé.
