Bev Priestman, Women’s National Team Head Coach, quoted in a release by Canada Soccer, said “We got the clean sheet and in the grand scheme of things this will push us on to the next match. If we want to change the colour of the medal we’ve got to look after the ball more and we have to finish the chances. We had some good chances but we’ve got to convert.”
Priestman further added “We want to turn the table on that Brazil result we had (at SheBelieves Cup). I think it will be a very exciting game and should feel like an Olympic Games fixture, that level of opposition, so I’m excited.”
Canada will next face Brazil at Estadio Cartagonova on Monday 14 June at 21:00 local (15:00 ET / 12:00 PT), with a live broadcast on OneSoccer.
Canada Soccer’s Women’s National Youth Teams have won four Concacaf youth titles, including the 2004 and 2008 Concacaf Women’s Under-20 Championship, the 2010 Concacaf Women’s Under-17 Championship, and the 2014 Concacaf Girls’ Under-15 Championship, according to Canada Soccer.
Canada have qualified for seven editions of the FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup (including a silver medal at Canada 2002) and all six editions of the FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup (including a fourth-place finish at Uruguay 2018).
