Canada vs. Brazil: What you need to know

Preparations by the Canadian women's team for the 2023 FIFA World Cup continued last week with an important 2-1 road win over Brazil in Santos.

The two long-standing rivals will meet again this week to close out their two-game exhibition series. Shelina Zadorsky and Adriana Leon both scored off corner kicks in last Friday's victory for Canada, who has now won five games in a row and nine of its last 10. Brazil entered the contest riding a 10-game winning streak.

A physical and chippy match at times, the game never managed to get too out of hand, although Brazil did try to continuously work the ref in order to win fouls around the Canadian penalty area. Zadorsky and Leon grabbed the headlines for their goal-scoring exploits, but goalkeeper Kailen Sheridan was also a key player for Canada on the day, making a series of important saves to preserve the win.

Here’s what you need to know about Tuesday's return match (1:15 p.m ET) between Canada and Brazil at Neo Química Arena in São Paulo.
