Ireland once more will come into the game against Canada as underdogs, however, their impressive performance against the host's Australia last Thursday and Canada losing three games one after the other coming into the game, can allow us to dream of Girls in Green victory.

Latest Team News -  O'Gorman in for Payne

Heather Payne who was announced in the starting line up has been replaced by Aine O'Gorman minutes from the game.

O'Gorman comes in for Payne after she felt a tweak in her hamstring during the Irish warm-up.


Heather Payne, midfielder for the Irish women's national team was a doubt for the side before being announced in the starting lineup for their World Cup game against Canada.

Payne failed to participate fully in Ireland's pregame warm-up.

What result?

Ireland are in Group B of this year's Women's World Cup. Since the draw was announced, the group has been given the prestigious 'Group of Death' title by many sports pundits and fans due to the very little difference separating all four of the team's abilities.

Nobody is willing to predict who will top Group B as many consider it the most open group in the tournament, just as tomorrow's game between Ireland v Canada is a difficult one to call.


The draw between Australia and Nigeria means that Ireland will be in a brilliant position if Ireland can secure a famous victory. However, a defeat would mean Ireland could be eliminated from the tournament.

The Australia v Nigeria game will kick off at 11am Irish time, which should clarify Ireland's position regarding the Canada result.
