Argentina and Canada are set to square off against each other for the second matchday of the SheBelieves Cup on Sunday at the Exploria Stadium.

The short yet pacy tournament has already gained importance after just one matchday, as there is no time for teams to dwell over their past results.

The case happens to be similar for both Argentina and Canada, whose respective losses make this match-up all the more compelling.

Plagued by numerous COVID-19 cases within the camp, the Argentinian side lost 4-1 to arch-rivals Brazil in the opening fixture of the SheBelieves Cup.

Mariana Larroquette's consolatory effort proved to be the only silver lining for Carlos Borrello's side.

Argentina, who replaced Japan at short notice due to a spike in coronavirus cases in Japan, have an uphill task on their hands. They will be aiming to revive their campaign despite the issues off the field.

Meanwhile, Canada suffered a 1-0 defeat at the hands of the USA Women's team in a game where the scoreline speaks little of the latter's authority and quality.

The Canadians should consider themselves lucky to have only fallen by a goal, as they faced a whopping 28 efforts on their goal.

Nevertheless, they will have to dust off the underwhelming display against USA and fancy their chances on Sunday with Argentina short of resources.
