Canada to play Brazil in two-match series during November 2022 international window
Canada Soccer’s Women’s National Team will be playing a two-match series against Brazil during the November 2022 FIFA international window. Canada will travel to first play Brazil on Friday 11 November and conclude their series Tuesday 15 November. 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.
“We are excited to end the year with two great games against Brazil,” said Bev Priestman, Canada Soccer’s Women’s National Team Head Coach. “We know both of our nations have a rich history when playing each other in big moments. Given some of the roster realities, this window will again provide us with a great opportunity to continue to test and build our depth against very good opponents.”
“With our group now known for the FIFA Women’s World Cup Australia & New Zealand 2023™, it makes coming together and climbing again that much more exciting. It’s been a big year for many of our players and we are excited to hopefully end it with more excellent performances and steps forward.”
Both 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. Fans will find extended coverage for the matches across Canada Soccer’s digital channels on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and YouTube featuring the hashtag #CANWNT.
