England Women 0-2 Canada Women: Player ratings as Lionesses lose last game before GB squad announcement

Two glaring defensive errors saw England Women lose 2-0 to Canada in the Lionesses’ final fixture before interim coach Hege Riise names her Great Britain squad for the summer’s Tokyo Olympics.

Riise made six changes from the side that lost to France but it was the visitors who took the lead with one of their first attacks of the game, as Demi Stokes dallied on the ball and allowed Evelyne Viens to nip in and fire home.

Returning goalkeeper Karen Bardsley failed to clear her lines late on and allowed Nichelle Prince to close her down practically on the line for Canada’s second.

Lauren Hemp, Georgia Stanway and Jordan Nobbs were among those who impressed at Stoke’s bet365 Stadium, but England failed to get on the scoresheet.

Let’s get into the player ratings for the Lionesses.
