Canada to face Switzerland next in round of 16 at Women's World Cup

TORONTO - Canada will meet Switzerland in the round of 16 at the Women's World Cup.A tournament official confirmed the matchup Wednesday, the last day of pool play at the 24-country tournament.As Group A winner, Canada meets the third-place finisher from Group C, D, or E on Sunday at B.C. Place Stadium.That makes for 15 permutations but with the Netherlands, in Group A, and Switzerland, in Group C, guaranteed to be two of the four third-place finishers moving on, that reduces the number of permutations to six.And in every one of those cases, Canada faces Switzerland.
