Canada’s women’s soccer team dropped a 1-0 decision to Chile on Sunday in their second game of an international tournament in Brazil.
Yanara Aedo scored the game’s only goal in the 40th minute, getting her head on a free kick to clinch the win.
Chile won a few early corner kicks to test the resolve of a young Canadian back line that features two teenagers — Sura Yekka and Kadeisha Buchanan.
Canada spent the majority of the second half on Chile’s side of the field, and had a number of scoring chances, but couldn’t find the goal it needed.
After using up its four allotted substitutions, Canada had to play the final minutes a player short after Kaylyn Kyle had to be helped off the field with an injury.
