Diana Matheson says she plans on playing in the World Cup even though the Canadian midfielder will not be ready for Saturday’s opener, and possibly not at all until after group play concludes.
“It means everything,” the 31-year-old Matheson told SportsNet’s Naoko Asano about the chance to play in a World Cup in Canada. “I plan on being back.”
Canada coach John Herdman has said that whether she plays or not, Matheson will be an asset to the team. Three years ago she scored the goal that lifted the Canadians to the bronze medal at the London Olympics.
