Canada dropped to 1-1 in 2013 and at the Yongchuan Cup with a 3-1 setback to South Korea on Monday in Yongchuan, China. By the time 17-year old Nichelle Prince bagged her first international goal in the 77th minute it was far too late as the Koreans had opened up a 3-0 lead.
Prince joined Adriana Leon of the Breakers as Canadians to score their first international goals at the tournament.
“It’s a setback if you look at the result, but there were some really good things performance-wise,” coach John Herdman said. “The players worked hard and looked to develop the game through possession as we’ve asked.”
South Korea took their lead through goals by Lou Jiahui (19th minute), Ma Xiaxou (29th), and Jung Seol Bin (55th).
The Canadians conclude play Wednesday and can win the Yongchuan Cup if they beat Norway and get some help from the Korea-China result.
