HIGHLIGHTS: CanWNT vs. South Korea (June 26, 2022)
TORONTO – The Canadian Women's National Team were held to a 0-0 draw against South Korea at BMO Field on Sunday afternoon as Bev Priestman's side found themselves limited in opportunities to score in a match that proved a more experimental back-and-forth, particularly in midfield.
Starting without Christine Sinclair in the XI – with the superstar forward left on the bench throughout this match as she continues to recover from injury – Canada struggled to muster chances in front of goal, as Priestman rotated through her attacking options in an effort to gauge what she's got ahead of this summer's Concacaf W Championship.
To that end, Benfica forward Cloe Lacasse said the match offered Les Rouges a chance to tinker tactically, and learn a little more about one another.
"This is the first part of our journey, before the Concacaf W Championship starts," Lacasse told OneSoccer. "So we're getting going, making those partnerships, and trying to see that chemistry between each other. Korea was very well-organized today so this was a great way to start out journey, just to be aware and get prepared to deal with the kind of block they brought today.
"Of course, we wanted to get more shots on frame. After the first half, we kind of got the butterflies out and got our chemistry going. We wanted to get more shots on frame and be more dangerous."
Canada next looks toward the Concacaf W Championship - a qualification tournament for the next FIFA Women's World Cup, summer Olympics, and Concacaf W Gold Cup.
The Concacaf W Championship will be held in Monterrey, Mexico and begins on July 5th. Canada's first opponents will be Trinidad and Tobago (July 5), followed by Panama (July 8) and Costa Rica (July 11).
