Canada Team News:
Having made the quarterfinals in 2015, Canada will hope to go deep in the tournament. Head coach Kenneth Heiner-Moller has the squad at his disposal which is being seen as an early tournament favourite.
But the team’s combination is still a mystery, for he has tried many formations in the friendlies leading up to the world cup.
Cameroon named a near about the same squad which featured four years ago in the USA.
Though questions continue to surface over Gaelle Enganamojit‘s form and match fitness. Evidently, she hasn’t played in an official game since January.
While the other area of concern is the central defence. The identity of who will play alongside the team’s ever-present captain Christine Manie at the back is still not clear. Though Augustine Ejangue orAurelle Awona or look to be the main contenders.
Canda’s best ever finish in the tournament came in the 2003 edition when they finished fourth in the tournament.
While Cameroon’s managed an 11th place finish in their maiden FIFA Women’s World Cup in 2015.
Captain and Vice-Captain options:
Christine Sinclair – The world cup will certainly be the main target for this living legend of women football, but she can carve out her name in the history books if she manages four goals in the tournament, for it will take her past Abby Wambach in the list of most goals scored by a women footballer. Currently, she has 181 goals.
