From the first moments of the match, Canada were unable to score, despite pressure on the Chile defense. In the sixth minute, a goal was initially denied to Kadisha Buchanan as he pushed the ball into the net with his hand.

A foul by Daniela Pardo on Kristin Sinclair in the penalty area on the 18th, then failed, giving Becky a golden opportunity to open the scoring with a penalty shot. His strike ended on the post.

It is only a postponement. In the 37th minute, the forward caught a loose ball in the penalty area and scored her first goal of the tournament, giving her own lead.

After the break, in the 47th minute, Becky continued his pace by accepting an excellent pass from Ashley Lawrence before circling the Chile goalkeeper and scoring in the empty net.

In the 57th minute, Karen Araya closed the gap with a penalty shot after a Shelina Jadorsky foul.

Chile tried to come back, but their best chance ended in a strike at 73rd post.

This is what I expected in the game. I always said it was not an easy game, insisted coach Bev Priestman. We made it harder for us at times. But overall I was happy to get three points.

Becky’s two goals are her fourth and fifth Olympics victories. The Manchester City player scored three runs in 2016 in Rio, where Canada won its second consecutive bronze medal.

Doing goals is my job. I have players around me who create opportunities around me. It is great to reward a team with two goals.
