Canada advances to Concacaf W Championship final
  • Canada 3 (Fleming 18’; Chapman 64’; Leon 76'), Jamaica 0
  • Fleming nets 3rd goal, tied for tournament lead
  • Canadians a perfect 9-0-0 vs. the Reggae Girlz

It’s Canada and the United States at the summit of women’s soccer in the Concacaf region once again.

The Canadians maintained their perfect record at the 2022 Concacaf W Championship after recording a 3-0 win over Jamaica in Thursday’s semifinal at Monterrey’s Estadio Universitario.

Jessie Fleming, Allysha Chapman and Adriana Leon scored for Canada, who have earned four clean sheet victories at this competition by a combined score of 12-0. It has to be said, Canada hasn’t been seriously tested in Mexico, but that’s about to change.

With this win, Canada advanced to next Monday’s final against the U.S. at Estadio BBVA, while Jamaica plays Costa Rica in the third-place match on the same day. The U.S. beat Costa Rica 3-0 in Thursday’s other semifinal. Like Canada, the Americans are a perfect 4-0-0, and have outscored their opponents by a combined score of 12-0. This will be the fifth time that Canada and the U.S. will meet in the Concacaf finals since the inaugural tournament in 1991. Canada and the U.S. haven’t faced off since the Reds earned a penalty shootout win in the semifinals of last summer’s Tokyo Olympics.
