Canada women win 6-0 while playing in unusual 2-4-4 formation

Christine Sinclair scored her 159th career goal, passing American Mia Hamm for second on the women's career list on Sunday.

Who needs defenders anyway? Canada's women's team certainly don't after thrashing Trinidad and Tobago 6-0 in an Olympic qualifier on Sunday.

And they did it all with just two players on the back line, using a rarely 2-4-4 formation.

Centre-backs Shelina Zadorsky and Kadeisha Buchanan had little to do, even without any full-backs next to them.

We understand Canadians are used to playing hockey with two defenders, but no word on if their soccer team ever considered pulling their goalie.
