The clear story of the match is Canadian captain Christine Sinclair and whether or not this game (or if not this game, which of the games that follow) will be the one where she breaks the record for international goals. Sinclair, however, is focused on her team, trying to be the best player and leader she can to help Canada to three points. Coming into the World Cup, Canada hasn’t posted scorelines that blow their opponent out of the water, but with Sinclair, Nichelle Prince, and Janine Beckie on the attack — and Jessie Fleming sitting as a playmaker — they’ll be able to find goals.
After advancing out of their group in 2015, Cameroon will want to open their tournament on a high note. This means defensive midfielder Genevieve Ngo Mbeleck holding back Canada’s attack, accompanied by an experienced defensive line led by Christine Maine. Cameroon trying to spring offense of their own through the versatility of midfielder Raissa Feudjio. Players such as Ajara Nchout will look to use skill to break down a Canadian defense that has allowed only one goal this year.
