Canada and South Africa are both fighting for their first points of the tournament when they meet on Saturday 28th July 2012 in Coventry. (14:45 local time).
Despite the South African's 4-1 defeat against Sweden in their opening game, it was their one goal by Portia Modise that made the headlines. A stunning long range lob which left Lindahl hopelessly back-peddling soared straight into the net.
Canada suffered a 2-1 defeat against the world champions Japan in their opening group F fixture.

This is a must win match for either team. Canada were lucky in not losing 0-3 and instead getting away with 1-2. RSA were also fortunate because they could have been 0-7 and even 0-8 down by 15-20 min. Instead they got away with 1-4.
More important, by scoring tons of goals, the winning team could still get a lucky loser spot. Should Canada win and then scalp the Swedes, the world would be their oyster.
Go, RSA, go go go!
I'll support RSA with all my strenght and wait for another Portia Modise's gem !
But I'm afraid Canada wins... 3-1.
RSA will have to win this one, its our only chance before we face Japan and I think that the Coach had learned a lot from the first game and he is going to make show that they are well organized at the back, because the off-side trap technic was not working at all against Sweden.
I haven't read a lot of support for Canada until now... It's pity that theyr way of playing is so... er... not very pleasant, beacuse Candians are very nice people (well, those from Quebec at least ;o))
Thanks for the pic Izzy. Betetr to meet those nice girls in the aisles than on the pitch, actually... ;o)
