MEXICO CITY – The Mexican Football Federation disclosed Thursday a list of 19 players selected for the women’s national team friendly at Canada on November 24.
The match, which will be played at BC Place in Vancouver, will be the first meeting between the regional powers in nearly two years.
On January 27, 2012, a crowd of 22,954 fans saw Canada book its ticket to the Olympic Games with a 3-1 win in a CONCACAF Women’s Olympic Qualifying tournament semifinal, which was also played at BC Place.
The two sides also faced off in the championship match of the 2010 CONCACAF Women’s World Cup Qualifying tournament. Canada’s Christine Sinclair scored the game’s only goal via a 53rd minute penalty kick at the Estadio Quintana Roo in Cancun, Mexico.
