Canada Women Dominate but Have to Settle for 0-0 Draw with Iceland at Algarve Cup


Canada ties Iceland 0-0 at Algarve Cup

--

PARCHAL, Portugal - Canada dominated play, but had to settle for a 0-0 draw with Iceland at the Algarve Cup women's soccer tournament Wednesday.

It was largely one-way traffic at Estadio Municipal da Bela Vista with fifth-ranked Canada consistently bearing down on No. 22 Iceland, which was limited to a few counter-attacks.

But Canada failed to convert its chances with Iceland goalkeeper Sandra Sigurdardtottir coming up big on several occasions. By the end of the game, Iceland was packing 10 players behind the ball.

The Canadian women had 61 per cent possession, outshot Iceland 16-4 (5-2 in shots on target) and had a 9-2 edge in corners.

"But the most crucial thing in the game, we didn't succeed on. I won't say it's a problem but it's something we need to work on. We need to be able to convert more than zero out of I don't know how many (chances)."

"Everything until the penalty area I was very pleased about," he added.

The Canadian women face No. 20 Scotland on Friday in Lagos. Canada is 6-1-0 all-time against Scotland. A third ranking match will be played March 6.

Heiner-Moller fielded a veteran team featuring captain Christine Sinclair, Diana Matheson, Sophie Schmidt and Desiree Scott, a quartet with 793 caps between them. Kailen Sheridan earned her seventh cap in goal.

Heiner-Moller deployed a back three of Schmidt, Kadeisha Buchanan and Rebecca Quinn with Janine Beckie and Ashley Lawrence rampaging up the flanks as fullbacks. Beckie, who won the FA Women's Continental League Cup on the weekend with Manchester City, earned her 50th cap for Canada.

Scott served as holding midfielder with Jessie Fleming and Matheson behind forwards Sinclair and Nichelle Prince.

Canada came close in the third minute when Matheson, after a timely run up the middle, sent a shot on target that was saved by Sigurdardtottir. …
