OTTAWA, Canada — They’re coming home. A total of 888 days have passed since they last played on Canadian soil, and now Canada will be back at home. Saturday afternoon at TD Place Stadium will be the venue when the Tokyo Olympic gold medal champions kick off their celebration tour across Canada.
Bev Priestman will coach her first game for Canada at home, as the red and white take on 23rd FIFA ranked New Zealand in what will be the first game on a cross-country tour celebrating Canada’s momentous gold medal victory.
Canada has a 7-2-4 record since Priestman was named head coach almost a year ago on October 28, 2020. Canada has earned a clean sheet in 53.8% of matches since Priestman took over for Danish head coach, Kenneth Heiner-Moller.
Canada hasn’t lost a match since the SheBelieves Cup in February.
While the sixth-ranked Canadians have always been known for being a compact and challenging defense to break down, that has grown immensely with Priestman.
How will Canada grow and develop heading into the 2023 World Cup?
