The Canadian women’s soccer team has won bronze medals in the last two Olympic games. Christine Sinclair led the national team to bronze at the London 2012, and the other at the Rio 2016. With the Tokyo Olympics set to begin in less than a week, many are wondering if they can bring a medal home this year as well.
The new coach Bev Priestman plans to achieve more as she said “A team like Canada should be on that podium. I think we need to change the colour of the medal… To keep moving forward, we have to aim higher than that.”
The tournament will include 12 teams divided into three round-robin groups. Group E will include Japan, Canada, Chile, and Great Britain. Group F will include China, Brazil, Netherlands, and Zambia. Group F will include Sweden, United States, Australia, and New Zealand. The top two teams from each group and two of the best third-place teams overall will move on to the quarter-finals.
