Sinclair and Hooper are back! We came back from a 3-0 deficit to win 4-3 agains Denmark. Sinclair scored two and Hooper and Andrews scored one each. Denmark goals all came from their right side. I think our two old timers Morneau and LeBlanc had their better days and they no longer can adjust to the faster game prevailing at this level.

Canadian comeback downs Danes

Wednesday, 25 May 2005

By Peter Bruun

Denmark 3-4 Canada

Denmark finalised their preparations for UEFA WOMEN'S EURO 2005™ in the worst possible fashion by wasting a three-goal lead to lose to Canada in Copenhagen.

Stunning start

In front of more than 1,500 spectators at the Brøndby stadium, Peter Bonde's side began their final warm-up match in scintillating fashion and were 3-0 up after 13 minutes. Top scorer Merete Pedersen opened the scoring as early as the fourth minute, outsprinting the Canadian defence to shoot in.

Quick strikes

Seven minutes later it was 2-0, Dorte Dalum Jensen collecting the ball on the counterattack and picking out Pedersen, who headed in her and Denmark's second goal. It was 3-0 two minutes later, Danish captain Katrine Pedersen striking the crossbar with an effort but Cathrine Sørensen was on hand to sweep in the rebound.

Canadian comeback

FIFA Women's World Cup semi-finalists Canada struck back in the 24th minute, captain Christine Sinclair pulling one back with the North American side's first shot on target. Denmark continued to press, however, and might have restored their three-goal cushion before half-time, but Sørensen failed to convert a glorious opportunity.

Sinclair supreme

Canada poured forward in the opening stages of the second period, and got their reward eleven minutes after the restart as Sinclair made it 3-2. With 12 minutes left Charmaine Hooper equalised and, with Denmark rocking, Sinclair completed her hat-trick - and a remarkable Canadian comeback - six minutes from time.

Bonde verdict

"Our players were simply scared by the Canadians' physical strength in the second half," said Denmark coach Bonde. "We never really got back into the game after their second goal, and we have to look closely on video at all the individual duels we lost - and we practically lost all of them in the second half - but we played fantastically in the first 25 minutes."

That's 2 away-wins in a row over teams ranked #5 and #7 by FIFA. Should earn Canada a lot of points in the new FIFA scoring system.

let us hope that it is okey to count the eggs before they hatched. I am glad to see Hooper back in form. She is a true hall of famer.
