Canada News and Form

Canada look a bigger threat this time around than they did four years ago. They are usually pretty solid at major tournaments and have a good set up. Canada are undefeated for 2019 so they have shaped up well in this World Cup year. They are W5 D1 in their last six games. Also in this group are New Zealand and the Netherlands, so there is a good chance for the Canucks to make their way into the top two. Last year they had competitive tournament action in the CONCACAF Women’s Championships where they finished second to the USA.

Their star turn is still Christine Sinclair who has 181 goals to her name from 281 international caps. Four more and she is the top scorer at international level in the history of the women’s game. This is Sinclair’s fourth World Cup and she has scored in each of her other three. She actually got one of the two goals that Canada managed in the group stage four years ago. They still managed to win the group. Interestingly New Zealand and the Netherlands were in their group four years ago. As part of their unbeaten streak in 2019, Canada beat England in a friendly in April. They have six clean sheets in their last seven.


Key-Facts – Canada v Cameroon

  • Canada are undefeated in 2019
  • The Canadians have conceded just one goal in their last seven games
  • Cameroon have played just two games since November


Cameroon News and Form

This may end up being a really tough game for Cameroon. In fact, their 2019 World Cup campaign may be hard going. They are the third lowest ranked team in the competition. Only South Africa and Jamaica are lower in the world standings. Four years ago in Canada, Cameroon weren’t given much hope of getting past the group stage, but they did. They managed wins over Ecuador and Switzerland to pull that off.

Their preparations for this tournament have been terrible though. A new head coach was put in place in January this year. Since November last year, they have played just two games. The first of those was a resounding 4-0 thumping at the hands of Spain in a friendly. They then beat club side Levante 4-0 in their final game before the tournament. So that is the extent of their preparation, which can’t be good. While the Indomitable Lionesses have done alright against teams from their own confederation, they have fallen short against stronger side in the world game.

Canada Women v Cameroon Women Predictions

Canada to win: This should be fairly routine for Canada and it is a great game for them to ease their way into the tournament with. Cameroon are not likely going to get too close to them to cause them problems. Canada to win to nil fits the bill nicely, and it is probably worth a flutter on Sinclair getting on the board.
