An embarrassed Matildas face reigning Olympic champions Canada off the back of a 5-0 defeat on Saturday, in the second of two friendlies in North America.

It was a nightmare in Langford for the Aussies in the first of the two matches. They are certain to be better this time around, yet if coach Tony Gustavsson sticks to his mantra of giving opportunity, another less than full strength team could well be overcome by what looks a powerful Canadian squad, with some its biggest stars back to full fitness.

I’m backing a 1-1 result in a much tighter match and a few Matilda veterans to demand a starting position after the humbling loss on Saturday.
