England and Canada go head to head again just weeks after the Cyprus Cup Final when they meet in Rotherham on Sunday 7th April 2013 at 3pm (local time).

  

It was England who were victorious in the last meeting between the two sides, a Rachel Yankey lone goal was enough for England to claim the Cyprus Women’s Cup Championship 2013.

England are without Kelly Smith, Claire Rafferty and Carly Telford for this fixture due to injuries.

    Thank you for sharing @Steve  – I had not seen this article before!

    It is a strange thing to say, unless its been taken out of context – But either way, you are setting yourself up for some strong responses by saying that.

    Canadian coach John Herdman is quoted to have said he apologized to the fans for a boring match…

    League kicks off on 14th April @Gromit

    I suppose the Canadians players were a bit tired after their travel. They played in Nice only three days ago and in very difficult conditions. They also spent a lot of energy in trying to catch the ball for 70 minutes, then pushing hard to equalize…

    When does the English championship start again by the way ?

    Lol @Gromit.
    Canada did not seem a threat at all in today’s match (in my opinion). The one real opportunity they had fell to Sinclair but she fired her shot straight at Alex Scott.
    England are looking very promising, the youngsters on the squad are really making an impact.
