Canada Women's National Team 2023 World Cup review

While the United States Women's National Team drew more headlines for falling in the round of 16, fellow CONCACAF side Canada actually fared worse by going out in the group stage.

The tournament started with Canada drawing 0-0 with Nigeria in a game where Canada had a 0.9 expected goal advantage and held 66 percent of possession.

Next up was the Republic of Ireland, and Canada won that match 2-1 thanks to an own goal from Ireland's Megan Connolly in first-half stoppage time and a winner from Adriana Leon in the 53rd minute. Katie McCabe scored in the fourth minute for Ireland.

Canada's final World Cup match was its biggest disappointment: a 4-0 loss to tournament co-hosts Australia. Hayley Raso - who played for Manchester City at the time and later earned a move to Real Madrid - scored twice in the first half, Mary Fowler scored in the 58th minute, and Steph Catley scored a penalty in second-half stoppage time to eliminate the Canadians.

Canada Women's National Team World Cup history

Canada has qualified for every World Cup since 1995, but it has only made it past the group stage on three occasions. The team finished in fourth place at the 2003 edition, got eliminated in the quarterfinals of the 2015 edition which it hosted, and got eliminated in the round of 16 in France in 2019.

In 1995, 1999, 2007, 2011, and 2023, Canada was eliminated in the World Cup group stage.

Canada Women's National Team Gold Cup history

Canada has had much more success in the CONCACAF Gold Cup, which is North America's championship tournament. The team won the tournament in 1998 and 2010 and finished as runners up in 1991, 1994, 2002, 2006, 2018, and 2022.

Canada Women's National Team Olympics history

Canada's most recent trophy was in the 2020 Summer Olympics, held in Japan. In the group stage, Canada drew with Japan and Great Britain and beat Chile. Canada beat Brazil on penalties after a 0-0 game in the quarterfinals, beat the United States 1-0 in the semifinals, and beat Sweden on penalties after a 1-1 game in the final.

Prior to winning in 2020, Canada finished in eighth place at the 2008 Olympics and in third place in both 2012 and 2016.
