Canada Set To Face Brazil In Montreal And Halifax
Canada Soccer confirmed the Women’s National Team will once again face Brazil this time at home.
On Friday afternoon Canada Soccer confirmed Canada will play Brazil on October 28th in Montreal before facing them on the 31st in Halifax.
“We are excited to officially kick off our new Olympic Journey against Brazil, a team we have a rich Olympic history with,” said Bev Priestman, Canada Soccer’s women’s national team head coach. “To play at home in front of our fans again, after what was a fantastic experience in September, will be the perfect stage for us to kick on and build towards Paris 2024.”
The game on Saturday is scheduled for 2:30PM Eastern at Saputo Stadium in Montreal while the game on Tuesday is set for 7:30 pm Atlantic time at Wanderers Grounds.
These international friendlies will serve as a warm-up for the 2024 Paris Olympic games next summer.
The last time the Women’s National team played in Montreal was back in October 2021 as part of the celebration tour against New Zealand after winning gold in Tokyo.
The game in Halifax will be a long-anticipated return to the East Coast. The last time the city hosted a game was back in 2012 when Canada beat China PR 1-0 thanks to a goal from Christine Sinclair.
Canada played Brazil three times last year in preparation for the World Cup in South America and currently has a record of 10-9-10. They also played Brazil at the SheBelieves Cup, beating them 2-0 thanks to goals from Vanessa Gilles and Evelyne Viens.
Canada Soccer stated the roster will be confirmed at a later date, though Brazil has already confirmed their roster for the October international window.
