    With a better coach this Canada team would look a little better. Still, they weren't terrible just couldn't do anything in the final 3rd. Though honestly Sweden's defensive style is also hard to play through; outside of one weird set piece and an offside goal the US didn't really threaten them much either. Unfortunately Sweden capitalized and Beckie didn't. Deserved win for Sweden but I think Germany will roll them as they're a much more suited team to breaking down a very defensive side (IMO).

    I never watched the Canadian men play because they suck too much for me to even give up my time to watch them. Now I think i am done with the women too. They always disappointment me. I feel bad for Sinclair because she gave it her all for this country and I absolutely love her.

    Everyone on this team and especially the coach, but Sinclair can **** off!!

    At least I have Italy.

    Sweden stuck to a game plan and everyone on the field for them contributed to their victory. Disappointing for Canada but the best team won.

    Inexcusable to not have Sinclair take that penalty. I would say it cost Canada the game but that was one of the sloppiest and most uninspired matches I've ever seen them play.

    What a ridiculous decision not to put on Huitema

    Sinclair won't be done until she passes Wambach's record. Still baffled by that decision

    You may wanna start watching the men. We're improving fast.

    Also pretty hard to **** on someone like Desiree Scott. She was the best player on the pitch for us.

    Jonathan David is making just as much of an impact.

    Sweden basically is basically the women’s soccer equivalent of the dead puck era- boring, tiresome, stale, no fun to watch

    Very strange coaching from Canada. Than these Canadian commentators won’t criticize their own players, why not?

    Jesse Fleming had a very underwhelming game needed her to step up and take her game to another level but failed. Schmidt was a giveaway machine out there and Beckie should have nailed that PK (good save though). A very uninspired game overall by Canada and disappointing but Sweden derserved that win.

    Gretzky is trending on Twitter (1998 Nagano shootout).

    Sounds like the team picked Beckie to shoot.

    Yup she should have been the player who replaced Beckie especially being down a goal

    Canadians actually care for womens soccer? You be surprised how many here in Sweden who wants the swe women to lose. Because theyre *****ing and moaning in media how great they are and that they deserve as much money as the men.

    Meh, i thought Canada would be the one to send them home :(

    That's happening here with hockey. And there's a basketball commercial as well.

    It's annoying because it's basic economics. You are paid peanuts because that's what your leagues draw.

    Fire this coach and hire a woman. This guy is getting blamed by the panel. And TSN tried to eviscerate him. I thought he was being questioned by the KGB.

    Masterclass defensive job to Sweden. Hoping they go far.

    Canada did not really generate too many open chances. Sweden totally shut them down!

    Reality check for Canada. They will never ever be a top team in the world. The women peaked between 2011 and 2013 but that was because teams in GB and Southern Europe sucked.

    Go watch youth soccer and you will see why Canada is lagging behind.

    What do you think the Canadian women want? Same as the Americans.
