Canada's Women's National Team took it on the chin Monday when they lost 3-1 to Korea Republic in their second match of the 2013 Yongchuan Cup in Yongchuan, China.
Nichelle Prince scored her first senior goal in the 77th minute after Canada had fallen behind by a 3-0 score.
Head coach John Herdman had stated heading into the camp that Canada could drop results as it integrates young players and a new style of play. The loss to Korea followed that narrative.
"It's a setback if you look at the result, but there were some really good things performance-wise," said Herdman. "The players worked hard and looked to develop the game through possession as we've asked."
Norway leads the tournament with six points, Korea Republic occupy second place with three points (goal difference: 0), Canada is third with three points (goal difference: -1) and China PR is in fourth with zero points.
Canada can still win the tournament if they can defeat Norway in the team's final match on Jan. 16.
China PR will take on Korea Republic on the same day.
