Canada Soccer’s Women’s National Team have announced their squad for the upcoming November 2022 international matches against Brazil. Canada will travel to first play Brazil on Friday 11 November at Vila Belmiro, in Santos, and conclude their series Tuesday 15 November at Química Arena, in São Paulo.

“The group is excited to get back together again for one last push of 2022 against a top team,” said Bev Priestman, Canada Soccer’s Women’s National Team Head Coach. “With some of the roster realities it provides us with an opportunity to invite and assess some young talent who recently represented Canada at the FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup. 2022 has really given me the opportunity to develop squad depth for 2023 and 2024, which is fantastic and exactly what we know helps teams be successful in tournament football.”

Canada’s November matches will be broadcast live on OneSoccer, available as a linear channel on Telus’s Optik TV (Channel 980) as well as online at OneSoccer.ca, through the OneSoccer app and on the fuboTV Canada platform. Both matches will kick off at 13.15 ET / 10.15 PT (15.15 local). Fans will find extended coverage for the matches across Canada Soccer’s digital channels on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and YouTube featuring the hashtag #CANWNT.

Canada have a long history with Brazil having first faced them in 1996. Both teams have been well matched throughout the years with Canada having a record of eight wins, nine draws, and nine losses against Brazil. The last time the two teams met was on 30 July 2021 at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics, when Canada beat Brazil 4-3 in penalties after going scoreless in regular and extra time.

Canada won all of their matches in the past September and October international windows. In their two-match series in September against Australia, they had a 1:0 victory on Saturday 3 September and a 2:1 victory on Tuesday 6 September 2022. They followed up those performances in the October international window with back-to-back wins, defeating Argentina 2:0 on Thursday 6 October 2022 and Morocco 4:0 on Monday 10 October 2022. 


FIFA Women’s World Cup Australia & New Zealand 2023™
