Canada has hit double digits in wins for the third consecutive women’s international season, a first in Canadian Soccer Association history. Canada improved its 2012 record to 10 wins and four losses, with the most recent win a 1:0 victory over Colombia on 9 July in Vevey, Switzerland.
Both Canada and and 9 July opponent Colombia are currently preparing for the London 2012 Women’s Olympic Football Tournament. Both teams are also scheduled to play two preparatory matches this month in the Matchworld Women’s Cup.
Also of note on 9 July, captain Christine Sinclair scored her 15th goal of the season, one off the national record she set in 2007. This marks the third time Sinclair has scored as many as 15 goals in a season (2000, 2007 and 2012).
Canada’s women’s national team will train in Switzerland from 5-18 July. The team then travels to England where, after two days in London, it will be based in Coventry for its first to London 2012 Women’s Olympic Football Tournament matches. Canada plays 25 July against Japan, South Africa on 28 July, and Sweden (in Newcastle) on 31 July
