Match Report

Despite a late push, Canada Soccer’s Women’s National Team lost 2:1 against Mexico in an international friendly match in Mexico City.

The first attempt of the match came to the Canadians from a corner kick. Vanessa Gilles was first to it, but her header went just wide of the post (8’).

In the 13’, Canadian goalkeeper Kailen Sheridan was called into action for the first time to make a routine save on a low shot.

Mexico was awarded a penalty in the 18’ as Gilles collided with Mexico’s Diana Garcia in the box. Stephany Mayor stepped up to take the penalty kick and put it past Sheridan to give the home side a 1:0 lead (19’).

In the 30’, Marie Levasseur played a pass into space down the line for Nichelle Prince who used her pace to take the ball away from a defender and cut towards the goal. Her final pass into the box was blocked and cleared by the Mexican defence.

In the 38’, Allysha Chapman made a lovely give and go move with Levasseur, but Chapman couldn’t pick out a teammate with her final cross into the box. A second ball played in from the other side found the head of Christine Sinclair, but the attempt was easily saved by the Mexican keeper.

Cloe Lacasse entered the match in the 61’ to make her CanWNT debut.

Mexico doubled the lead in the 76’. A free kick was played into the Canadian penalty area and although Sheridan was able to make a great first save, the rebound popped up to the on-rushing Alicia Cervantes who had a tap-in header to make it 2:0.

Lacasse had an opportunity to score on her debut in the 80’, as she was played through into the box and found herself one-on-one with the Mexico keeper, who was able to make a strong save to deny the Canadian.

Canada pulled one back in the 86’. Quinn was able to take three touches before playing a chipped cross into the middle of the box. The first header popped up and Jordyn Huitema was there to follow it up and place the ball in the bottom left corner, making it 2:1 (86’).

Canada put more and more pressure on the Mexican side in the final five minutes of the match as they sought the equalizer.

In the 89’, Sophie Schmidt played a ball over the top of the Mexican defence and into the path of Deanne Rose, creating a two-on-one Canadian attack. Rose elected to play a hard, square pass to Lacasse who was all alone on the other side of the goal, but there was just too much pace on the pass and Lacasse wasn’t able to keep her shot down.

In the fourth minute of stoppage time, Chapman’s pass into the box somehow managed to find the feet of Schmidt who had enough space to take a quick touch and get a clear shot away. A great save by the Mexico keeper prevented the Canadians from tying the score. The ball bounced around in a dangerous area before a Huitema header was finally caught and controlled by the keeper (90+4’).
