Canada hit back to win, knock Ireland out

Canada came from behind to beat Republic of Ireland 2-1 at Perth Rectangular Stadium in Australia, to eliminate Vera Pauw’s side from the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup on Wednesday.

Katie McCabe had given Ireland an early lead by scoring her country’s first Women’s World Cup goal.

But Canada turned it around through an own goal from Megan Connolly and second-half finish from Adriana Leon.
