“Carolina did bring something completely new and exciting to our program,” said captain Christine Sinclair. “We are trying to play the beautiful game. It is a work in progress for our team having played so direct over the past eight or nine years…(but) it’s going so much better than anyone expected.”



Morace saw 29 different players between the California camp and the Cyprus competition. From 5-12 March, Morace posted two wins, one draw and one loss at the 2009 Cyprus Women’s Cup. The team lost 1:3 in the final to England.



Players have now returned to their clubs, but will regroup in May for the Canada-Japan friendly match on 25 May, presented by Winners. Tickets to the match cost between $15-$35 each. Group rates are available in numerous sections with the purchase of 10 or more tickets.



Canada, whose title sponsor is Winners and presenting sponsor is Teck, has an all-time record of three wins, three draws and three losses against Japan. While Canada finished eighth at the 2008 Women’s Olympic Football Tournament, Japan finished fourth. On home soil, Canada currently holds a six-game unbeaten streak (3-3-0).
