France is the host nation for the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup. Roazhan Park, the site of April’s friendly, is one of the nine stadiums that will host matches in the tournament.

“As we know from hosting in 2015, a lot of attention is given to the national team’s lead up, so the invitation to play France, in a FIFA World Cup venue, means we will have a well-attended match with strong opposition. It is an opportunity to familiarize ourselves with France and how it will be like in 2019,” new Canada coach Kenneth Heiner-Møller said in a statement released by Canada Soccer.

 

Last week, Canada announced that they will host Germany in a friendly in Hamilton, Ontario on June 10.
