Canada beat Switzerland 1-0: FIFA Women’s World Cup 2015 soccer

VANCOUVER, British Columbia: For most part of it, the match looked boring. Both the teams seemed to be content with defending. The hosts, Canada, who have done pretty well in the tournament thus far, finally went for the kill towards the end of the game and Belanger’s goal enabled them to win the match 1-0 and enter the next round.

I am sure there may millions of soccer fans who would be ready to give up anything to just have a look at the petite Josee Belanger whose big left foot forced Switzerland out of the tournament.

This was the first knockout match for both Canada and Switzerland, and a loss here would have ensured the exit of the Canadian eves. Thankfully, this didn’t happen and Canada has survived to reach the quarterfinals of the FIFA Women’s World Cup quarterfinal on home soil.women soccer usa team

The top Canadian soccer player that was playing at her regular preferred forward position successfully controlled a pass from Christine Sinclair and struck it left-footed to finish into the lower corner of the net past diving Swiss goalkeeper Gaelle Thalmann.

Not just she was overjoyed with the massive goal that gave her side entry into quarterfinals, the team coach John Herdman jumped into the air as his squad came out energized after halftime. Switzerland’s solid attack and pressure in the first half helped quiet the crowd of 53,855.

But the next match is going to be pretty difficult for the hosts. Canada advances to face sixth-ranked England or No. 11 Norway in the quarterfinals next Saturday back here at BC Place. The Canadians beat a European team in the World Cup for the first time in 11 tries.
