Canada will battle Switzerland in the round of 16 in Women’s World Cup–an elimination game deciding the destiny of these two countries on the global stage.
John Herdman’s outfit wasn’t boasting large-margined victories during the group stage run, with a 1-0 win over China, a 0-0 draw against New Zealand and a 1-1 draw to the Netherlands. Canada still came out on top of Group A with five points, the lowest total of any group winner at the tournament.
Switzerland grabbed only one win in tournament’s beginning when they trounced Ecuador 10-1, but the Swiss fell short in their two other matches, losing to incumbent WWC champion Japan, 1-0, and to Cameroon, 2-1.
