Match Preview

A crucial match in Group B at the Women’s World Cup will take place on Wednesday, as both Ireland and Canada must claim victory to keep their hopes of progression alive. Ireland made their World Cup debut on Thursday morning, but despite a spirited effort, they were eventually beaten 1-0 by Australia.

The Irish lacked a clinical touch in the final third, and only time will tell how important their missed chances in the final ten minutes could turn out to be. However, it was an impressive effort against one of the leading contenders for glory at the competition, and positives would have been taken. But, a victory will be required in this second match in Group B.

The pressure will also be on Canada, as they were hugely disappointing in their opening match at the World Cup. Canada had the perfect chance to claim victory over Nigeria in their opener, but Christine Margaret Sinclair spurned her opportunity from the penalty spot. The goal would have seen her make history by scoring in a sixth edition of the World Cup.

Canada continued to push for the winning goal throughout the second half, and ended the match having registered 16 attempts. However, they will need to be more clinical in their second match against Ireland if they are to avoid a group stage exit for the first time since 2011.

Canada vs Ireland Prediction

This is an interesting second match in Group B, and both nations could feasibly claim victory. However, I was very impressed with Ireland in their opening match, and if they are able to convert their chances on Wednesday, then they could secure a massive win.
