The Canadian women's soccer team is still looking for its first victory at the Four Nations tournament after it was held to a 0-0 draw by host China on Friday.
Canada lost 4-0 to the United States in its opening game of the competition on Wednesday.
Two 17-year old forwards — Jonelle Filigno and Julie Armstrong — started up front alongside captain Christine Sinclair for Canada on Friday.
Despite failing to score against the Chinese, Canadian coach Even Pellerud was pleased with his team's effort.
"Our team performed at its highest level in quite some time," Pellerud said. "With teenagers Jonelle Filigno and Julie Armstrong as starters, as well as midfielder Clare Rustad who recently returned to the team, we managed to control a very accurate passing team."
Goalkeeper Karina LeBlanc, who was on the roster but injured at last September's FIFA Women's World Cup in China, played in her first game for Canada since a 0-0 draw with Japan last August.
Canada's next game at the Four Nations is on Sunday against Finland, which lost 4-1 to the U.S. on Friday.
