As a tune up for the 2015 Women’s World Cup being hosted by Canada, the Canadian women hosted the number 2 ranked German squad at BC Place Wednesday, June 17th.

Even with Canadian superstar Christine Sinclair leading the Canadian squad, they were unable to pull off a victory in front of the home crowd.

Simone Laudehr of Germany scored the 2-1 winner from the penalty spot in the 65th minute after Lena Lotzen was brought down by 18-year-old Canadian defender Kadeisha Buchanan in the penalty area.

Lotzen had Germany’s other goal, while Sophie Schmidt replied for Canada.


Canada started 4 teenagers including 16-year-old midfielder Jessie Fleming.

Christine Sinclair and Nadine Angerer (the goalkeeper for Germany) are teammates with the Portland Thorns of the NWSL.
