oops ... already get the sense Canada`s going to find some joy attacking the left side of France`s back line. Filigno looks bright
Nothing on target yet Jon
Jon, we don`t get running stats updates.
France with another throw deep on the left side.
Nothing comes of it. We're 25 minutes in. No score.
Jacqueline, Can`t tell you how many emails I`ve received in the last three days from parents of girls in soccer. Whatever happens here, I think that 2015 World Cup is going to be a cracker. And it`s in Canada. Maybe the next Christine Sinclair is watching today.
Nault does terrific job closing down Thomis.
Best chance of match. Tancredi heads ball wide with goalkeeper way out. Filingo, Sinclair and Tancredi linking up very well,
Tom, this is a better start than I expected.
And there it is: McLeod saves on Thomis. Bold play, didn`t go down, stood up well. VERY composed. Best sign of match so far.
Thomis can fly. Impressive pace.
Darren, Thomis vs. Nault scares me.
Seems to be fair number of Canadian Olympians here.
France still working vs. Nault.
France`s Wendie Renard is at 5-11 the biggest player on the pitch
We're at the 30 minute mark. Very little sustained possession by Canada.
France has Canada hemmed in here. A good pass and Canada can catch them on the counter.`
Bad giveaway by Wilkinson. Good recovery by Sesselmann
The hockey analyst: Haven`t noticed ref, so yes. Much better.
Filigno`s getting space vs. Bompastor. Sinclair`s shading to the left side of the French defence too.
France wasting a lot of possession.
Thomis blazes down the right side but the cross is terrible.
Nice sliding tackle by Wilkinson..here we go on the counter...
Sinclair needs a little more support from Tancredi. Canada`s switching sides with Tancredi and Filigno, trying to get Filigno vs. Bompastor.
We're in the 37th minute. Canada needs to get some rhythm going forward.
Matheson free kick through box. Tancredi hurled herself at it. Terrific delivery.
Sesselmann and Moscato very impressive the last three matches. Very composed.
According to people around the team, Tancredi was one of the first players that Herdman really challenged.
Corner France. Six minutes until the half.
French corner.Seen their strong technical skills in the last 10 minutes,
McLeod shaken up on cross.
McLeod did really well on that play. Very brave,
Dale, no, I think Sinclair needs to have the ball at her feet more often,`
Herdman would take 0-0 at the haldf, after 120 minutes-plus vs. US and all the issues surrounding Sinclair.
She's up, with a slight limp.
