2012 Olympics: Canada get the bronze as they beat France, 1-0


Canada completely outplayed by France in the second half managed to score an extra time goal by Diane Matheson following a scramble for the ball in front of the box. Before that heartbreak, France had peppered the Canadian goal with a plethora of shots, one that unluckily hit the upright, with the rest sailing over the crossbar. But Canada perhaps also believed they deserved a bit of luck after their contentious semi-finals against the USA that was decided after some controversial calls went against them. The bronze medal was some vindication.
France continues to show tremendous improvement. They’re unmatched in talent. All they need now is to have the self belief and the finishing qualities to rise to championship material.

  1. To share the thematics of the 2012 London Games, I think it’s worth to look at the big picture of the games so far. This is really more to complement your post,, but today I happened to be reading the National Post and found a pretty interesting article that takes a look at the high and low points of the games so far. I personally found it a pretty interesting read and if you’re up for it, I think it’s really worth a glance: http://www.pressdisplay.com/pressdisplay/showlink.aspx?bookmarkid=NTHCORI48A51&preview=article&linkid=f7363fcc-72e9-4332-8b2a-f577514ffd45&pdaffid=ZVFwBG5jk4Kvl9OaBJc5%2bg%3d%3d
