Canadian women make early preparations for Ghana

Listen to coach Even Pellerud



Canada’s women’s national team had a light training session today at the Zhejiang College of Sports in Hangzhou. The women are in between matches at the FIFA Women’s World Cup China 2007. After a 1:2 loss to Norway (Norge) on Wednesday night, they are now preparing for their match against Ghana on Saturday (15 September).



Starters from the previous night’s match had a light workout while the rest of the players were able to do more in training. The coaches were also split up: two coaches went to the training session while two coaches stayed back at the hotel to review match video of their most recent game and their upcoming opponent, Ghana. Ghana lost their opening match 1:4 to Australia last night.
