Thanks for the info giglio. Btw the match will be on ESPN-2 at 16:00 Eastern US time.

Will you give us a match report? I am sure many of us will appreciate that.

I'd love to, but we don't get ESPN2 in Canada and the game is not available on Canadian TV.

Seriously though, here's the AP report on the match:

By CHARLEY GILLESPIE

COLUMBUS, Ohio (November 11, 2000 6:52 p.m. EST -
Charmaine Hooper had a goal and an assist in a three-minute span and Nicci Wright made 14 saves as Canada upset the U.S. women's soccer team 3-1 Saturday in an exhibition game.

Canada had lost 21 consecutive matches to the Americans, including three this year, before a 1-1 draw in Kansas City, Mo., on Aug. 20 broke the streak. The United States is 22-2-1 against Canada and has outscored them 100-16.

The Canadians went up 2-0 in the 21st minute, after a ball U.S. defender Christie Pearce tried to clear hit the back of another defender and bounced to Hooper, who slipped a low shot past Siri Mullinix and inside the right post.

Three minutes earlier, Hooper stole a ball at midfield, dribbled around defender Kate Sobrero, and passed to Christine Sinclair, who scored from 18 yards.

Hooper has played against the United States 20 times and scored six of Canada's 15 goals in those games. Hooper was drafted by the Atlanta franchise of the new Women's United Soccer Association (WUSA).

Canada only sent four shots on goal, but three of those went in. The United States, by contrast, had 29 shots at the net.

The Americans' lone goal came when Tiffeny Milbrett made it 2-1 in the 35th minute on a penalty shot. Sharolta Nonen was called for a hard tackle on Mia Hamm inside the penalty box.

Canada's new head coach, Even Pellerud, is one of only three men to coach teams to women's World Cup titles, having done so with his native Norway in 1995.

He has a 10-7-1 record since taking over Canada's team in November 1999.

Canada's Silvana Burtini put the game out of reach, at 3-1 with eight minutes left, off an assist from Marie-Claude Dion.

The Canadians were without several regulars because of college team commitments.

The game was the first of a three-game "Glory Tour" for the United States, the 1999 World Cup champions and silver medalists at the Sydney Olympics. The tour could mark the final few times the core group that had those recent successes plays together internationally.

Carla Overbeck, who has played 166 times for the United States, is expected to retire from the national team, although she will play in the WUSA with the North Carolina Tempest.

The WUSA, an eight-team pro league, begins play in April.
