Four-nations tournament in China, January 2011

Canada, USA, and Sweden will join China in this year's Four-nations tournament in Chongqing.

Match schedule:

January 21 - USA v. Sweden and Canada v. China

January 23 - Canada v. USA and China v. Sweden

January 25 - Canada v. Sweden and USA v. China

Canada, Sweden, and USA are all warming up for the 2011 World Cup. This means it will be a great year for this annual tournament, as all countries will be sending their "A" teams.

Well, maybe not the USA. Excused form attending are Shannon Boxx, Rachel Buehler, Amy LePeilbet, Carli Lloyd, Heather Mitts, Heather O’Reilly, Christie Rampone and Abby Wambach.

EDIT: Actually, the above USA players were only excused from training camp. All except Wambach were on the roster for the January 21 match against Sweden.

Sweden also picked up three points on the opening day, pulling off a 2:1 victory over USA.

Canada remains in first place at the 2011 Yongchuan Cup Four-Nation Women’s Tournament, but their ranking comes after a disappointing loss to the world’s number-one ranked USA on Sunday 23 January. Canada lost 1:2 to USA, with all three goals scored in the second half.

In truth, all four teams are even after Match Day 2 with three points apiece - a win and a loss. China PR won 2:1 over Sweden in the other Sunday match. All four teams are also even on goal differential, with Canada and China having scored four goals apiece and Sweden and USA having scored three goals apiece.

TUESDAY TIE-BREAKER SCENARIO
Should two or more teams finished tied on points after Match Day 3, the following tie-breaker scenarios will be taken into consideration.
- Greater number of Points in matches between the teams concerned
- Greater Goal Differences resulting from the matches between teams concerned
- Greater number of goals scored in matches between the teams concerned
- Greater goal difference in all group matches
- Greater number of goals scored in all group matches
- Drawing of Lots

Canada rounded out the 2011 Yongchuan Cup Four-Nation Women's Tournament with a 1:0 victory over Sweden. Canada won six points in three matches, but finished second in the competition behind first-place winner USA. Both Canada and USA finished tied with six points (two wins and one loss), but USA finished first because they won the head-to-head battle against Canada on Match Day Two. Host China PR finished third while Sweden finished fourth.

Sweden won the Fair Play award. Canada's Christine Sinclair was named Most Valuable Player while China PR's You Jia was the Best Goalscorer. USA's Nicole Barnhart won the Best Goalkeeper award.

Over the last year, Canada's record is now two wins, three draws and two losses against top-10 nations, with the only defeats coming against the first- and second-ranked USA and Germany.
