    Canada kicked off their two-leg Paris Olympic qualifying series with a 2-0 win over Jamaica on Thursday night in Kingston. After struggling offensively and defensively at the World Cup this summer, Canada put forth a vintage Canadian performance against the Reggae Girlz.

    Canada’s defense looked much more organised and cohesive as they earned a clean sheet. At the other end of the pitch, Bev Priestman’s squad was also able to create several quality scoring opportunities throughout the match. 

    A switch in formation to three defenders at the back played a vital role in how Canada was able to attack and get forward. Overloading the midfield helped Canada get out on the flanks and move in transition with ease.

    Canada’s 3-4-3 formation was a success.
