VIDEO – Bev Priestman: Her tactics and philosophy | Canada Women | 2023 | Tactical Analysis
When looking for teams that will be likely to advance deep into the 2023 Women’s World Cup knockout stages, some of the names that will always be considered are the USA, England, Germany and maybe even joint-hosts Australia.
However, another team worth considering are Canada, who have always been one of the stronger sides in the women’s international game and who have generally been worth keeping an eye on at major tournaments. Unlike the men’s team, who accomplished a major feat by simply getting to Qatar, there is a lot more expected of the women, and the fact that they only lost three times in the whole of 2022 will only increase those expectations.
There is no doubt that, under the management of former England assistant Bev Priestman (who took charge back in 2020), they have become a successful side — with their free-flowing style of play helping them to the gold medal at the 2021 Olympics in Tokyo and a second-place finish at the 2022 CONCACAF W tournament, and this tactical analysis video will examine her tactics in greater detail, looking at why the team has become such a force of nature.
