As part of the continued preparations for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games, Canada Soccer’s Women’s National Team will face England in an away Women’s International Friendly match on 13 April 2021.

The international match will take place during the April FIFA international window with location and kick off time to be announced at a later date.  Fans will find extended coverage across Canada Soccer’s digital channels on Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, and Twitter featuring the social media hashtag #CANWNT.

Canada Soccer will continue to closely monitor all COVID-19 developments in consultation with the Public Health Agency of Canada and relevant governing bodies through the Canada Soccer Sport Medicine Committee.

This will be the 14th international meeting between the two sides since they first met on 6 June 1995 in Helsingborg, Sweden when both nations took part in the FIFA Women’s World Cup for the first time. In the most recent meeting between the two nations on 5 April 2019 in Manchester, England, Canada won 1:0 after captain Christine Sinclair scored the winning goal in the 80th minute.

Canada faces USA on 18 February, Argentina on 21 February and Brazil on 24 February.
