Of note, Canadian defender Randee Hermus is expected to make her 100th appearance with the senior national side. Hermus will join Andrea Neil (132), Charmaine Hooper (130) and Sinclair (likely 109 after today) on the Canadian century club. Hermus has been a national-team member since 12 March 2000 which, incidentally, was also Even Pellerud’s first match as Canada’s head coach.



Canada is currently preparing for the CONCACAF Women’s Olympic Qualification Tournament which runs 2-12 April in Mexico. Canada needs to finish amongst the top-two teams in the six-team tournament to win a berth in the Women’s Olympic Tournament Beijing 2008.



In Mexico, Canada is hoping to draw inspiration from letters and photos featuring the “We Believe” theme.
