Canadian Women’s National Team midfielder Carmelina Moscato, a writer for Our Game Magazine, talked about Canada’s performance at the CONCACAF Gold Cup. Canada beat Mexico, 1-0, to win its second Gold Cup and first since 1998. Canada went 4-0 and outscored its opponents, 17-0, in the tournament, and in the process became the 10th team to qualify for the 2011 Women’s World Cup, where it will make its fourth straight appearance.
“For our team winning this tournament was not only a reflection of all the time and hard work everyone had put in, but it was also reflection of growth and progress since Carolina [Morace] and her staff came on board last February ,” Moscato said. “Canada is playing a style of soccer that is a pleasure to watch, and more sophisticated, making it a pleasure to play. The next 9 months are more exciting as ever and we have everything to play for!”
