Players of the Canadian women’s football team will have the honor to compete with Japan in the opening match of the Olympic Games to be held in Sapporo on July 21.
The head coach of the Canadian Women’s National Football Team, Bev Priestman, said at a press conference: “Now that we know our journey to participate in the Tokyo Olympics, the players are very excited and ready to step up to Achieve your goals.”. There is no easy opponent in the women’s Olympic football game, but we will do everything we can to make Canada proud. Through hard work, correct thinking and belief in our personal and collective abilities, Canada can face challenges in any competition and may succeed in the Olympics. “
Canada and Japan will hold their 15th meeting on the international stage. The representative of Chaoyang Land won the 2011 Women’s Football World Cup and won silver medals at the 2012 London Olympics and the 2015 Canada World Cup.
However, the duel with Britain may be just as difficult. In the quarter-finals of the London Olympics, the Canadians defeated it.
