Canada Women play their second FIFA Women’s World Cup 2019 Group E game against New Zealand Women at the Stade de Alpes in Grenoble on Saturday evening (local time).
A Kadiesha Buchanan goal just before the half-time interval gave Canada a 1-0 win over Cameroon in their opening group game in Montpellier on Monday. It stretched Canada’s unbeaten run to a nine-game streak, during which time they have conceded just one goal, although they have only averaged exactly 1.00 Goals per Game in that time themselves.
Meanwhile, New Zealand started with a 1-0 defeat against European champions the Netherlands, with Jill Roord finally breaking the Kiwis resistance by scoring the winning goal for the Dutch in stoppage-time.
Canada’s captain Christine Sinclair, who turned 36 on Wednesday, is four goals away from becoming the outright all-time leading scorer in men’s and women’s international football. At present she remains on 181 goals, which is three short of record holder Abby Wambach, the retired United States World Cup-winning striker.
