Canada, whose title sponsor is Winners and presenting sponsor is Teck, has an international record of six wins and one loss in 2011. Its recent success – second place at the Yongchuan Cup in January and first place at the Cyprus Women’s Cup in March – vaulted Canada to sixth place on the FIFA/Coca-Cola Women’s World Ranking.



In the group phase of this summer’s FIFA Women’s World Cup Germany 2011, Canada will face host Germany on 26 June, France on 30 June, and Nigeria on 5 July. The top two teams from the group will qualify for the quarter-final phase.
