Kadeisha Buchanan and Ashley Lawrence both featured in Canada's 4-0 thrashing of Paraguay as the Canucks maintained their perfect record in the Concacaf W Gold Cup.

Having already beaten El Salvador 6-0 in their Group C opener, the Canadians knew another three points would book their place in the knockout stage.

And they proved far too strong for Paraguay, comfortably winning their second game on the spin at the Shell Energy Stadium in Houston to qualify for the last eight with a game to spare.

Both Buchanan and Lawrence were in from the off against the South Americans, with the former lining up on the left of a back three.

Lawrence was restored to the starting line-up after she was an unused substitute in the win over El Salvador and began the match in an advanced role wide on the left of a forward trio.

The Canada attack also featured Adriana Leon, who hit a hat-trick in a 31-minute spell to settle the tie, during which time Olivia Smith also found the net.

Buchanan didn't feature on the scoresheet this time around following her fine header against El Salvador in the group opener, but once again completed the ninety minutes.

Our duo could next play on Wednesday when Canada play their final game of the group stage against Costa Rica, where a draw would confirm top spot.

As a busy February international break continues, Aggie Beever-Jones was also representing her country on Monday, as England under-23s faced the Netherlands in Marbella.

The U23 European League fixture marked a swift return to action for the Young Lionesses, who were defeated 3-1 by Spain on Thursday, where our young forward was on the scoresheet.

This time around Beever-Jones was denied despite several close efforts on goal, playing the full match for Emma Coates' team.

England were in control for much of the contest, with Beever-Jones impressing, but could not pick up the win. Hannah Silcock's first-half goal ensured they held the advantage, but a late equaliser from Fenna Kalma earned the Netherlands a draw.
