“I thought it was a very good football game. We really didn’t know what to expect going into the game. We knew Australia would be well coached by the coaching staff.  They play with a lot of heart and fire.  For us as a team, we spread the ball around quite a bit. In the past, we’ve seen a lot of blowout games in the first round of the tournament and this was not a blowout.”
– Jeff Yausie, head coach of Canada’s women’s national team
