  1. Post update

    Canada 0-0 New Zealand

    Good determination shown by Canada's Ashley Lawrence, harrying for the ball and not letting the chance get away.

    She has a crack from 25 yards out which is well blocked by Abby Erceg.

    That was travelling.

  2. CLOSE!

    Canada 0-0 New Zealand

    Canada winger Janine Beckie is seeing plenty of the ball, New Zealand may want to close her down.

    She has not proven to be too effective thus far though, knocking a cross from the left touchline into the sidenetting.

    Team-mate Christine Sinclair will be glaring daggers in her direction after that.

    Andy Davis: Really looking forward to this one

  4. CLOSE!

    Canada 0-0 New Zealand

    First real chance of the game.

    Big striker Christine Sinclair proving a handful for the New Zealand defenders already, winning a header by flicking it into the path of Janine Beckie in the box.

    The Man City player has two defenders sandwiching her and in the end a weak header is easily gathered by Erin Nayler.

  5. Post update

    Canada 0-0 New Zealand

    New Zealand boss Tom Sermanni has a superb moustache.

    Tom Selleck-esque. Those under a certain age will need to look him up.

  6. Post update

    Canada 0-0 New Zealand

    An early injury issue for Kadeisha Buchanan? The Canada defender scored the winner against Cameroon last time out.

    She is not moving too freely at the moment.

    Anyway, Man City winger Janine Beckie's cross from the left lacks direction and is straight into the hands of goalkeeper Erin Nayler.

  7. Post update

    Canada 0-0 New Zealand

    New Zealand have found goals hard to come by recently but are not sitting back.

    A dangerous cross from the right into the area towards Rosie White is well dealt with by Canada defender Jayde Riviere's important header away.

  8. Post update

    Canada 0-0 New Zealand

    Canada, as you would expect, getting the better of the early exchanges.

    Manchester City winger Janine Beckie has a try from way out but it is not troubling New Zealand goalkeeper Erin Nayler.

  9. Post update

    Canada 0-0 New Zealand

    An early goal will do very nicely.

    I've had 18 goals in my last two live texts - USA 13-0 Thailand and Jamaica 0-5 Italy.

  10. KICK-OFF

    Canada 0-0 New Zealand

    Away we go in the shadow of the Alps. This is a glorious setting for a sports stadium.

    Amanullah‏: Almost kick off time for Canada v New Zealand. All the lads watching it all the way in Turkey.

    Jim Tobin: 0-0 coming up?

    Let's hope not...

  13. Lacking a cutting edge

    Canada v New Zealand (20:00 BST)

    Poor New Zealand's record at World Cups is pretty awful.

    Played: 13

    Won: Zero

    They surprised England in the final warm-up game at the start of the month, but have since gone 220 minutes without finding the back of the net.

  14. Water tight

    Canada v New Zealand (20:00 BST)

    Canada team

    Canada manager Kenneth Heiner-Moller seems to be the Jose Mourinho of women's football.

    His side are unbeaten in the last nine games, keeping eight clean sheets, and they have conceded just one goal during that period.


  15. How did they start?

    Canada v New Zealand (20:00 BST)

    Canada beat Cameroon 1-0 in their opening game, while New Zealand suffered an agonising defeat in injury-time against the Netherlands.

  17. Gotta be patient...

    Canada v New Zealand (20:00 BST)

    Canada fans

    A team who don't concede against a team who don't score.

    This match is going to be one for the purists.
