Canada remains in first place in Group A at the Peace Queen Cup after a 3:1 victory over Korea Republic today. Canada can advance to the 21 June final with either a win or a draw against New Zealand on 18 June. Canada now has a career record of five wins and one loss in two editions of the Peace Queen Cup.
“Our goal is to build on our consistency and show up with another strong match against New Zealand,” says coach Even Pellerud.
Rolling right along is Canadian captain Christine Sinclair, otherwise known as the “Fearful Forward” in the Republic of Korea. Sinclair scored two more goals on Monday 16 June, giving her 10 goals in six career Peace Queen Cup games. She now has 90 goals in 117 career games at the senior level.
Canada has an all-time record of three wins, one draw and one loss against New Zealand, including back-to-back victories last June in Auckland. New Zealand won its Monday match 1:0 against Argentina, so it has a record of one win and one loss (three points) at the 2008 Peace Queen Cup.
For the 18 June and (likely) 21 June match in Korea Republic, the senior team will be without the service of the three youngest stars Jonelle Filigno, Jodi-Ann Robinson and Sophie Schmidt. The trio has flown to Mexico to join the youth team for the CONCACAF Women’s Under-20 Championship in Puebla. Canada’s youth team is looking to qualify for this year’s FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup Chile 2008.
Canada’s women’s national team, whose title sponsor is Winners and whose presenting partner is Teck Cominco, is simultaneously preparing for the 2008 Women’s Olympic Football Tournament. After the 2008 Peace Queen Cup, Canada will return home to play Brazil on 10 July at BMO Field in Toronto, ON. Tickets to the 10 July match are available via Ticketmaster (Ticketmaster.ca / 416.872.5000).
