I see that Canada and the USA get a bye to the semi-finals. I guess they want to avoid 15-0 games as much as possible...

How they do in the Peace Cup in S.Korea will be a good indication of what to expect in the GC. Now that Pellerud seem to have abandoned the services of Hooper, we will sure miss her scoring ability. We are not going to have thunder-foot Lang either.

After Hoopers last ill-considered public outburst I'm not surprised she's been dropped.

Are you confirming that Hooper has been dropped?

"public outburst"? I thought she was just quoted off a telephone interview. But anyway, Pellerud seems to have buried the hatchet with Kiss now.

No, can't confirm anything of the sort. It was still an ill-considered public outburst. Makes no difference whether she was being interviewed over the telephone or face to face. She should have known better, especially with her wealth of experience at that level. Not a very good example to her younger less experienced team mates. All players selected to national teams are expected to behave with restraint and decorum and are de facto ambassadors for their country.

Well, how's the state of Women's Soccer in Canada?

3 Years ago there was talk of Canada being future World Cup winners.

3-4 years ago the rest of the world was just getting in the groove. Now I think we are just also runs. I also think our depth is poor. One injury to a key player and the team strengh diminishes a lot. Now with no Hooper, things are even more difficult scoring wise.
