A tournament of firsts
Jessie Fleming and Allysha Chapman both scored their first senior goals. Young Fleming also earned her first red card.
Desiree Scott, Sophie Schmidt, Kadeisha Buchanan and Allysha Chapman led the way at the Cyprus Cup in terms of minutes. Each played all four full matches.
It might be a bit of deja-vu for the Canadians, because their only loss at last year’s Cyprus Cup was to England.
Christine Sinclair now trails Mia Hamm’s record (158) by five goals. Melissa Tancredi is just two appearances away from earning her 100th cap.
The squad is getting solid results in 2015. They’ve won six of seven matches thus far and have only conceded four goals. This bodes well with the Women’s World Cup quickly approaching.
Canada’s next match is a friendly on April 9th versus France in Bondoufle. They will have another friendly before the start of the World Cup in June, but the date and opponent have yet to be disclosed. The match is set to take place in Canada.
