Oh Canada: Scotland face tricky task

Scotland run the risk of ending an otherwise successful 2013 with four straight defeats, as they will now play Canada - not Chile - in their last Brasilia International Tournament match on Sunday.

The Scots lost a thrilling game 4-3 to a vibrant young Chile side on Wednesday night, while Canada were held 0-0 by Brazil. The results mean it will be an all-South American final, with the Canadians and Scotland playing for third and fourth places.

Chile emerged triumphant on Wednesday - and Glasgow City midfielder Leanne Ross won her 100th cap - but while the Scots would have been confident of reversing the result in a rematch, they instead face a much tough proposition in Canada. The 2015 Women's World Cup hosts also lost to the previously unheralded Chileans, but beat Scotland comfortably in the opening game of the tournament.
