It’s now getting very serious for the Canadian women’s team.
Canada Soccer announced on Friday afternoon that its women’s side will play the Czech Republic and Brazil in a pair of Olympic tune-up matches in Cartagena, Spain during FIFA’s international window next month.
Canada, No. 8 in the current FIFA world rankings, will face the Czech Republic (ranked No. 27) on June 11, and then play seventh-ranked Brazil on June 14.
