RECAP + HIGHLIGHTS: CanWNT vs. Argentina (Oct. 6, 2022)
The Canadian Women's National Team defeated Argentina 2-0 in Spain on Thursday, with substitute strikers Evelyne Viens and Cloe Lacasse each finding the back of the net in the first of two international friendlies of the month.
A red card to Argentina's Marina Florencia Delgado around the hour mark proved the turning point between these two FIFA Women's World Cup-bound outfits, with Canada pressing their one-player advantage to force an own goal off Evelyne Viens' shot, produced in tandem with Quinn and Simi Awujo before smacking off a defender's knee fortuitously.
Then, Lacasse opened her international account with a tap-in finish of her own, capping off a 2-0 win in a game that saw plenty of physicality and a few chances called offside that leaves Bev Priestman's team feeling more confident about their attacking abilities.
