Boyds, Md. (October 12, 2018) – Washington Spirit midfielder/defender Rebecca Quinn played a key role in propelling the Canadian Women’s National Team into the semifinals of the Concacaf Women’s Championship, with three straight wins in group play.
Quinn started all three matches for Canada as the team swept Group B, bringing them within one win of qualifying for the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup in France. The 23-year-old played 73 minutes in her country’s 2-0 shutout of Jamaica in the opener, and she played the full 90 minutes in their 12-0 drubbing of Cuba, and 3-1 win over Costa Rica to finish at the top of the group.
In addition to earning the 40th, 41st and 42nd international caps of her young career, Quinn notched her fourth career goal and third assist in the blowout win over Jamaica. She contributed to Canada’s two clean sheets on the defensive side, and saw significant playing time on the attacking side as well in an active midfield role.
Canada has shutout five of its past seven opponents across all competitions, and will look to continue the dominant defensive effort in Sunday’s semifinal match against Panama (5 p.m. ET on FOX Sports 1) at Toyota Stadium in Frisco, Texas.
