After being blanked last time out, the Canadian women's team will try to wake up their slumbering attack when they play Brazil in an international friendly on Monday.
Canada is coming off a goal-less draw against the Czech Republic on Friday in a pedestrian performance that left a lot to be desired and raised further questions about the Reds' ability to score. So far this year, Canada has a record of three wins, two losses and a draw, and it has three clean sheets. But it's also been shut out three times over those six games.
Canada, No. 8 in the current FIFA world rankings, is using this contest against Brazil (ranked No. 7) as part of its final preparation for this summer's Tokyo Olympics. Coach Bev Priestman previously said she planned to reveal her Olympic roster within 10 days of the conclusion of Monday's game. After that, the team will reconvene in late June for another training camp. Canada is also looking to play a tune-up match in Japan prior to the Olympics.
Here’s what you need to know about Monday's match (3:00 p.m. ET) between Canada and Brazil in Estadio Cartagonova in Cartagena, Spain.
