Morace to step down from Canadian post after World Cup

Canada Women’s National Team Head Coach Carolina Morace will step down following this summer’s Women’s World Cup, according to the CBC.

The report states that Morace and her staff are “at odds with the Canadian Soccer Association over the long-term strategy of the women’s program.”  That is a big blow for Canada, a country whose women’s soccer program went from being on the cusp of contending to building toward an international power over the last year.  After winning the 2010 CONCACAF crown and Brazil’s version of the Four Nations Tournament this past fall, Canada is on an all-time high entering the Women’s World Cup this summer.  Morace stepping down could serve as a major blow.

As Jenna Pel points out, Morace will leave a massive void in Canada’s women’s soccer program.  Could the situation change prior to the end of the Women’s World Cup?  Canada will certainly hope so.
