Canada reaches Cyprus Cup final with 2 : 0 win over Russia

Canada’s women’s national team will get the opportunity to defend their 2008 Cyprus Women's Cup title after defeating Russia 2-0 in the final group game. The Canadians were lifted past a spirited Russian side on goals from captain Christine Sinclair and Melissa Tancredi. Sinclair’s goal, the 98th of her career, moves her closer to the century mark for goals.

I know that women's soccer doesn't get a lot of attention, but Christine Sinclair has quietly been Canada's best player, period. She is closing in on 100 goals and may be able to achieve that in the final match. That is an achievement everyone should stand up and applaud.

Canada will now face England in the 12 March final.
