Canada, without any iota of doubt are not playing like champions. The hosts of the FIFA Women’s soccer world cup failed to capitalize on being the hosts. Hosts have many advantages and one of them is very supportive fans who root for their side and try to bring them out from brink of collapse. Nonetheless they have failed to capitalize on host advantage.

The Canadian eves will be taking on Switzerland, in winner take it all, in an important match of the Round 16. If Switzerland, who are playing their first women’s soccer world cup, are able to do an upset here, it will ensure that Canada will have to leave the tournament and watch it from the margins.

But there is very remote chance that the team Switzerland will be able to do an upset here. Nonetheless, as they have moved to the super 16, they are certainly capable of one such upset. The two teams are going to meet on Sunday in a completely sold-out BC Place in Vancouver (7 pm ET; CTV in Canada, FOX Sports 1 in US).women soccer usa team

Nonetheless it must be kept in mind that despite showing great promise, the hosts haven’t been able to justify the hype and grand ambitions that they were made to look like. There is no doubt that till now they haven’t truly looked like world-beaters in this tournament. Switzerland, on the other hand will be trying to set a mark by beating the hosts in their first-ever knockout-stage match at the Women’s World Cup.

Canada haven’t been able to look as good as they were being promoted. They won just a single match and that too with just 1-0 margin. It was only against China that they could win 1-0, otherwise the other two games were tame draws. They had a 0-0 draw against New Zealand and 1-1 draw with the Netherlands. But the team was walking a tight rope throughout the group stage – the win over China came on an injury-time penalty kick, while New Zealand missed a penalty kick of their own against Canada. Things would have looked different…

On the other hand Switzerland gave a tough fight to Japan, and though they eventually lost 0-1, they still won many a hearts. Then the Swiss obliterated a hapless Ecuador side, winning 10-1. But in their third group stage game, they fell 2-1 to a spirited Cameroon side, which left Switzerland at third place in Group C.
