SINGAPORE - Canada won 8-0 over Singapore in an international friendly match Sunday, completing its tuneup schedule before the women's Olympic soccer tournament in Tianjin, China.

It was Canada's second match in two days, drawing 1-1 with New Zealand on Saturday.

Jodi-Ann Robinson, Clare Rustad and Brittany Timko each scored two goals, while Randee Hermus and Kristina Kiss scored the others. It was Canada's biggest win since an 11-1 victory over Jamaica at last year's Pan American Games Rio.

In the first half, Canada built up a 4-0 lead with Hermus the first to score as she hit the target in the fourth minute off a Kiss corner. In the 12th minute, it was Robinson scoring on a pass from Melissa Tancredi. Just five minutes later, the duo combined for another goal.

In the 33rd minute, it was Timko's turn as she received the ball from Amy Vermeulen and then put it in the back of the net.

In the second half, Canada made three substitutions, including a goalkeeper change in the 55th. Stephanie Labbe made her first senior international appearance after replacing starter Karina LeBlanc.

Rustad made it 5-0 in the 57th minute after capitalizing on a scramble, then in the 73rd minute, Kiss scored on a scramble. In the 77th minute, Rustad scored her second of the game, this time off a Kiss corner kick.

Timko rounded out the scoring in the 84th.
