Having already secured first place in the Four Nations Cup, Canada played China this past Thursday in the final match. China's Gu Yasha opened up scoring in the first half and Canada would trail going into half time. The second half saw Christine Sinclair getting the equalizer off of a penalty, before scoring a second shortly after. The final score would remain 2:1.

Several mainstays have been noticeably absent on the pitch this tournament. While Erin McLeod has been absent from play, apparently with an injury, the absence of Diana Matheson, who is recovering from a ACL surgery, was obvious. Sophie Schmidt who recently turned into a goalscorer for the team, left the game against Mexico in the 11th minute with a possible injury as well.

3. Mexico, 1pt
4. China PR, 1pt
