    Canadian women confident

     NEWCASTLE, Australia (CP) -- Canada is feeling confident going into today's matchup with women's soccer powerhouse China at the Pacific Cup.
     
     So confident that coach Even Pellerud believes his team could surprise.
     
     "We are excited, we look forward to the game," the Norwegian native said Wednesday. "Today we have the opinion it's possible to beat them.
     
     "We are optimistic today."
     
     China is 3-0 at the tournament but Pellerud says the team has been "up and down" with the Chinese coaches slotting players in and out from a 32-woman pool.
     
     "I don't know why. They don't usually do that," Pellerud said.
     
     Canada is 2-1 at the six-team tournament after beating New Zealand 2-1 and Australia 2-0 and losing 9-1 to the U.S. China beat the Americans 1-0 earlier in the tournament.
     
     Pellerud is playing a 4-3-3 formation with Silvana Burtini, Christine Latham and Christine Sinclair up front.
