I think the spirit of this Canadian team that should be celebrated, is represented no better than by Carmelina Moscato. Carm played 1 minute in the 2 World Cups that she represented Canada in (2003 and 2011) and even took a hiatus from playing the game, coaching college soccer for 2 years when she just wasn’t enjoying it anymore.

After playing not even a moment in 2011, and going into the Olympics arguably backing up Chapman and Zurrer she seized her moment when both went down to injury and had a fantastic tournament, showing the world-class player that has been there all along, providing both smart defending and composed distribution, on her way to playing every single minute for Canada at the 2012 Games.
