TORONTO - Canada women's soccer coach Carolina Morace has resigned after her team lost all three matches at the 2011 Women's World Cup.

Morace officially left the team Wednesday and the news was released Friday. In just over two years, Morace led Canada to a 25-11-5 record and first place in CONCACAF qualifying for the World Cup.

But at the World Cup, Canada scored just one goal in losses to Germany, France and Nigeria and finished last overall in the 16-team tournament. Equatorial Guinea was the only other country to lose all three matches in group play
