Canada Women vs Costa Rica Women: Live stream, TV channel, kick-off time & where to watch

Group C leaders Canada look to wrap up the group stages of the CONCACAF W Gold Cup on a high as they face Costa Rica Women in a do-or-die match for the latter.

Canada Women have looked in sublime touch in what has been a cake walk in the group stage scoring 10 goals in their opening two games. The Canucks have kept back-to-back clean sheets and would be aiming to finish the group stages with a perfect record.

Costa Rica Women, on the other hand, registered their first win of the competition against El Salvador on the back of a scintillating brace from Priscilla Chinchilla. With Canada favourites to win the contest, José Vidal's side will be looking to spring a surprise otherwise they could be dumped out of the tournament if Paraguay have a favourable result against El Salvador.
