    Canada-U.S women's friendly June 2 sold out

     OTTAWA - The Canadian Soccer Association announced Saturday that the women's international friendly between Canada and the United States on June 2 at BMO Field in Toronto is sold out.

    The match marks the first time that the CONCACAF rivals have clashed since their dramatic semifinal at last year's Women's Olympic Football tournament. In a drama-filled match, Christine Sinclair handed Canada the lead on three separate occasions, before Alex Morgan netted late in extra time to give the U.S. a 4-3 victory.

    The Americans went on to win the gold medal, while Canadians captured bronze. It was Canada's first ever Olympic medal in women's football and the nation's first summer Olympics medal in a traditional team sport since 1936.

    "We want to thank our Canadian fans for this incredible display of support for our Women's National Team," said Victor Montagliani, President, Canadian Soccer Association. "This is a great indication of how passionate our nation is about soccer and only bodes well as we prepare to host the world for the FIFA Women's World Cup Canada 2015."
