With this win, Canada now has four points after a 1:1 draw with host Japan in the opening match of the Women’s Olympic Football Tournament and is well positioned to progress to the knockout phase with one last match to play in the group phase, the Canada Soccer said in a statement.
Meanwhile, Canada’s Head Coach Bev Priestman said “Overall, happy because we came here to get three points and that’s exactly what we did. The game was exactly what we expected it to be. It was never going to be easy.”
priestman further added “You had Olympic debuts for Jayde Riviere and Julia Grosso who came through the youth system, and I was really proud of both of those performances. We will take the positives and now it is about moving on and heading towards a big game against Great Britain.”
Canada will face Great Britain during its last group match in Kashima on 27 July.
