In Monday's Algarve Cup action, Thorns FC forward Christine Sinclair and midfielder Dagný Brynjarsdóttir squared off in a tense match-up between group leaders Canada and Iceland.


Sinclair, who also started in Canada's opening match against Denmark, assisted on Janine Beckie's 42nd minute goal. That goal proved to be the match-winner as Canada wrapped up the group and earned itself a spot in Wednesday's final against Brazil.
