FIFA Women’s World Cup 2019 Group Stage
Canada Women play their third and final World Cup 2019 Group E game against Netherlands Women at the Stade Auguste-Delaune II in Reims on Thursday afternoon, with both teams currently boasting 100% records and already assured of progress into the last 16 knockout stage of the tournament.
At stake on Thursday is top spot in the group, with the Netherlands having a slight edge over the Canadians in terms of goals scored, meaning that a draw would be enough for the Oranje to finish first.
Theoretically finishing top of the group could make for an easier draw in the last 16, although that’s not guaranteed. It may also be a case that with both teams already assured of qualification for the next stage of the tournament, that this game is one in which neither team takes too many risks, as they will be looking to conserve energy.
