Canada opened their competition with a 1:2 loss to group favourites Norway (Norge) on 12 September. They followed up with a 4:0 victory over Ghana on 15 September. In that match, the Canadians set national records for most goals in a FIFA Women’s World Cup match (four), most career goals in the FIFA Women’s World Cup by a single player (Christine Sinclair, five), and most career international caps by a player (Andrea Neil, 130).



Four years ago at the FIFA Women’s World Cup USA 2003, Canada entered their third match of the group stages with the same directive: win. Canada did just that, pulling off a 3:1 victory over Japan. After leaving the break tied 1-1, Christine Sinclair scored the eventual winner in the 49th minute and Kara Lang scored the insurance marker in the 72nd minute.
