Canada vs. Netherlands : FIFA Womenâ€™s World Cup 2015 live scores, highlights
update: A disappointing 1-1 draw was not people were expecting from the hosts. But Netherlands must be commended for coming out with such impressove show
This is going to be another great match in the Womenâ€™s World Cup 2015 soccer tournament. Hosts Canada are set to take on wily Netherlands and there are signs that the match will be close.
Nonetheless Netherland, like Canada, are aiming nothing less than an outright win here. It is a huge task that they have taken upon themselves as Canada are almost ready to sneak into the Womenâ€™s World Cup knockout stages.
Canada are among the best sides in the ongoing women soccer world cup and the team and its fan base is expecting the side to actually win the match in style and with a good margin. They want to ensure that as the hosts they move to the knockout round on top in their group.
They can still be on top in the group table even with a draw, but then things may not be as good looking as a quality team being as a host expects itself to accomplish. In case of a draw for Canada tonight and China winning their match against New Zealand, the Chinese side will be on top in group table tally.
The good thing for Canada is the thought that till now the Netherlands haven’t been as good as they are thought. Though they beat New Zealand, but they stumbled against Vhina.
We need to accept the fact that Christine Sinclair has become indispensible for Canadaâ€™s chances. If the team has to win, she has to do well. Her responsibility has gone up manifolds with Diana Matheson out and Jessie Fleming still not a starter, that someone needs to be Sophie Schmidt. She’s not exactly a playmaking midfielder, but Canada won’t create much if she can’t make a quality attacking pass or 10.
