As is well known, the Canadian team, current champion of the Olympic Games and direct zone rival, will hold two friendly matches against Mónica Vergara’s Tri Femenil this November 27 and 30 at the High Performance Center and the Blue State (Atlante ).
Both teams have launched their calls and on the Canadian side, although the intention was to maintain the same squad that raised the Olympic gold in Tokyo, it had to be subject to a couple of changes to which more players were added due to injury.
Among the list of players who will not be able to be in this pair of games are Janine Beckie, current Manchester City player, who for medical reasons will not be able to make the trip to Mexico and West Ham forward Adriana Leon.
Subsequently, it was announced that three key elements of this Canadian team would be added to the list of casualties due to medical reasons in this call. It’s about nothing more and nothing less than goalkeeper Stephanie Labbé. who is considered worldwide today as one of the best in her position.
Ashley Lawrence, the lateral dynamic who also has offensive qualities and who is a reference in France, will not be able to be for this match either, along with Shelina Zadorsky, central defender, this last line being the most affected given the names and positions they play in the countryside.
In the end, Jenna Hellstrom and Ashley Cathro will be the replacements in the face of these casualties that, although they will be covered, will undoubtedly not have the same impact that these players could generate, since the five absent are a key piece of this Canadian team and top-level players performing in the best stages in the world.
Thus, the Women’s Tri will be measured against a Canada without Janine Beckie, Stephanie Labbé, Ashley Lawrence, Adriana Leon and Shelina Zadorsky. Unfortunately, we would have wanted all of them to be present, but now that they will not be, Mexico will have to take advantage of the absences and do damage to win the games.
