Canada beat Costa Rica 2-0 to top CONCACAF Women’s Championship group



Jessie Fleming scored an early goal and Canada beat Costa Rica 2-0 at the CONCACAF F Championship.

Canada won Group B and will face Jamaica or Haiti in the semi-finals of the tournament. Canada and Costa Rica had already qualified for the 2023 Women’s World Cup as the top two in their group.

Fleming scored in the fifth minute and Sophie Schmidt added a goal in the 69th for the Canadians, who conceded no goals in the tournament.

Panama beat Trinidad and Tobago 1-0 on Monday to secure third place in Group B and a place in the Intercontinental qualifiers in February for another chance to qualify for the World Cup. Marta Cox scored for Panama just before halftime.

The United States, defending World Cup champions, won Group A, also qualifying for the 2023 World Cup in Australia and New Zealand. The United States was scheduled to face Mexico later on Monday. Jamaica and Haiti were to play for the group’s other direct World Cup spot.

The winner of the eight-team W Championship will earn one of the region’s berths at the 2024 Paris Olympics.
