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.


USA edge Germany 1-0 in SheBelieves Cup opener

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.


Canada Soccer’s Women’s National Team fall 3:1 in its opening match of the 2018 Algarve Cup

Canada Soccer’s Women’s National Team fell 3:1 in its opening match of the 2018 Algarve Cup.  Playing in its first match since November’s home and away international friendly matches against USA and Norway, Canada controlled large parts of the game and demonstrated creativity throughout, but Sweden succeeded in capitalising on defensive errors to defeat the Canadian side.

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.

The U.S. team will kick off the third annual edition of the world’s most elite-four team tournament on Thursday, March 1 at MAPFRE Stadium in Columbus, Ohio. England will open against France (4 p.m. ET on ESPN3) followed by the USA against Germany (7 p.m. ET on ESPN2).


Canada clinches Semi-Final berth with 4:1 win at CONCACAF Women’s U-20 Championship 2018

Canada defeated Trinidad and Tobago, hosts of the 2018 CONCACAF Women’s Under-20 Championship, 4:1 to secure a spot in the knockout round with six points.  Canada will now face Haiti, also with six points, in its final match to determine first and second place in Group A.

Despite an early goal by Trinidad and Tobago in the third minute and a loud home crowd for the opponent, Canada maintained its composure and brought a tactical approach that proved the game-changer. Canada used the wings to move the ball up the field and deep, putting a number of crosses into the box, as well as building in from the sides and forcing Trinidad and Tobago to play deep in their end.
