On Tuesday we celebrated a decade of the Barclays FA Women’s Super League (WSL) and seven players were on international duty for their respective countries.
Shelina Zadorsky and Canada had the biggest result of the day, recording a 2-0 win against England at the bet365 Stadium in Stoke.
The visiting Canadians capitalised on two costly defensive mistakes to beat the Lionesses and secure a memorable victory. Shelina played the full 90 minutes and wore the captain’s armband for the closing stages.
So-hyun Cho and Korea Republic faced China in the second leg of their final qualifying match for this summer’s Olympics in Suzhou. Korea Republic trailed 2-1 from the first leg and despite a promising first half, they were unable to overcome the deficit.
Although Korea Republic came agonisingly close, China held on to secure their place at the Tokyo Olympics with a 2-2 draw, winning 4-3 on aggregate.
For the second consecutive match, Alanna Kennedy started and completed 90 minutes for Australia. It wasn't to be for the Matildas, however, who succumbed to a 5-0 defeat to the Netherlands.
Josie Green, Esther Morgan and Anna Filbey were unused substitutes as Wales hosted Denmark at the Cardiff City Stadium. An early Pernille Harder goal put Denmark ahead before Jess Fishlock scored a deserved equaliser for the Welsh side.
Aurora Mikalsen was also an unused substitute in Norway’s 3-1 defeat to Germany at the BRITA-Arena in Wiesbaden.
