Canada's women's World Cup exit leaves bitter taste.
Canada knows all about Sweden. Two of the pioneers of the women's game, these two have been slugging it out for decades. What we witnessed in Paris should have surprised no one who follows the game. It was a tactical and technical stalemate. As usual, there was plenty of effort but not much finesse from both in a physical encounter punctuated by two key moments. The first goal was always going to be pivotal. The Swedes grabbed it on a classic counter attack that exposed a lack of speed and awareness at the heart of the Canadian back line. The goal naturally changed the course of the game.
