Canada will officially finish last at the FIFA Women's World Cup in Germany.

Canada will officially finish last at the FIFA Women's World Cup in Germany.

The Canadian women were among eight teams that failed to survive the first round at the 16-tournament. But their failed campaign turned a little uglier as pool play wrapped up Wednesday.

North Korea and Colombia played to a 0-0 draw, giving both teams a single point from their three matches. That means they finished higher than winless Canada, even though they failed to score at the tournament.

At 0-3, Equatorial Guinea matched the Canadians in losses. But the Africans, with two goals for and seven against, had a slightly better goal differential than Canada, which scored one goal and gave up seven.

The Canadians exited Tuesday after a 1-0 loss to No. 27 Nigeria. Canada was also beaten 2-1 by No. 2 Germany and 4-0 by No. 7 France.

Canada came into the tournament with an all-time world ranking high of No. 6. Equatorial Guinea is ranked 61st.
