International Roundup: Canada roll past Cuba in CWC and Dash duo settle for draw in London

Lindsay Agnew and the Canadian Women’s National Team scored a tournament-high 12 goals on Monday evening to roll past Cuba and top Group B of the Concacaf Women’s Championship. Allysha Chapman and Nichelle Prince, who scored both goals in the CanWNT 2-0 victory over Jamaica last Friday, were unused substitutes for the duel at H-E-B Park in Edinburg, Texas.   

Canada can join the U.S. Women’s National Team in Frisco, Texas later this week as a top seed with a draw against Costa Rica in the final matchday of Group B. With a victory, Canada will secure a top seed and will face the winner of the Mexico vs. Panama match on Wednesday.  

Bianca Henninger and Mexico defeated Trinidad and Tobago 4-1 in Cary, North Carolina last Sunday to secure their first victory of the tournament. Mexico will face Panama in a must-win match on Wednesday where the winner will advance to the knockout round and likely face Canada in Frisco, Texas.  

Rachel Daly and the Lionesses played to a 1-1 draw with Clare Polkinghorne and the Westfield Matildas at Craven Cottage earlier today. Polkinghorne salvaged the draw with a header off a corner kick in the 84th minute. Daly, a second half substitute, generated numerous scoring opportunities after entering the match in the 63rd minute.  

Thembi Kgatlana, Linda Motlhalo and South Africa will face Chile in their final meeting of a two-leg series in South America at 9 p.m. CT. Banyana Banyana fell to Chile 2-1 in the first match after the South American side converted a second half penalty. Motlhalo started the match and Kgatlana came on in the second half.
