Living to the north of one of the most successful nations in women's football cannot be easy. Just ask the Canadians.

However, a 1-1 draw at the Algarve Cup on Friday and a string of good results against their neighbours may be changing all that.
Including the draw in Portugal, the Canadians have actually proved the equal of the two-time FIFA Women's World Cup champions over the past seven games, with two losses, two victories, and three draws. An impressive record considering that no team has an overall winning record against the Americans except for Norway. More
