Ottawa, Ontario – The Canadian Soccer Association today announced its Women’s World Cup Team will play the United States in Columbus, Ohio on November 11 at 4:00 p.m. EST. The game will be played at the Columbus Crew Stadium.
This will be Canada’s 18th game in the year 2000 under new head coach Even Pellerud, who has posted a record of 9-1-7 since taking over the program in November 1999. It’s the highest number of games ever played by a Canadian women’s national team in one year. This will also be the fifth game played between the two countries this year. The last time the two met was on August 20 in a friendly in Kansas City when Canada ended a 21-game losing streak against their southern neighbors with a 1-1 draw.
The Canadians are 1-1-22 in their history against the Americans who lost the Gold Medal Game at the Sydney Olympics to Norway on September 28. The game is part of a three-game tour by the U.S., which has been dubbed the “Glory Tour”. The Americans will also play Mexico and an opponent to be named later.
The Canadian roster for the November 11 game will be announced in mid-October.
