Canada Soccer have announced a pair of friendlies for the women’s national team to be played during FIFA’s October international window.

Bev Priestman’s side will travel to Cadiz in Spain for matches against Argentina (October 6) and Morocco (October 10) as they continue to prepare for the 2023 World Cup in Australia and New Zealand.

The draw for the World Cup will take place shortly after the friendly double-header on October 22, when Canada will learn their group stage opponents.

“This window gives us the opportunity to experience different styles of opposition that will come with the expanded 32-nation FIFA Women’s World Cup,“ Priestman said in a press release. “I’m glad we secured two nations that have qualified and who we could very much face next summer.

“There are still some players missing with injuries and so I hope we can continue to assess players in the wider pool and see them take their opportunity to step up as we saw many do in Australia. This is the last window before the FIFA Women’s World Cup draw and so from this window, we are excited to learn our path and finalize 2022-2023 planning”

Canada are currently ranked seventh in the world, with Argentina 31st and Morocco 76th, while the latter recently won the 2022 Africa Cup of Nations.
