Netherlands vs Canada

Canada drew New Zealand on Thursday while the Netherlands lost to China. Canada currently leads Group A with four points while the Netherlands and China are tied with 3 points each. Canada has had a hard time scoring goals this tournament and have been saved from giving up goals on more than one occasion by goalkeeper Erin McLeod. They have been able to control possession but success in front of goal eludes them. For the Netherlands Sari Veenendal has taken over as starting goalkeeper after Loes Geurts suffered an injury. Though she was unable to save the penalty kick that cost them the game against China Veenendal made several great saves on the 27 shots China took at the net. Like Canada, the Netherlands also needs to jump start their offense if they want to move on to the next round of the tournament.
