A brace by Aysha Jamani along with goals from Deanna Everrett and Jodi-Anne Robinson led the Canadian attack. "This was a game played in extreme conditions," said Canadian head coach Bob Birarda.

It is a great experience for these players to have to follow up a good performance from the night before by playing in this heat aginst a rested team.

Bangkok, Thailand Canada's U19 Women's National Team and their German counterparts treated the 2,500 spectators on hand to an entertaining match that featured outrageous goals from both teams. But the Canucks had to battle back from three goals down to share points with Germany on a tremendously muggy evening in Bangkok. The Europeans threatened to run away with the encounter when they dashed out to a three goal lead in the opening forty minutes but a two-goal barrage in the dying minutes of the opening half by a battle-hardened Canada threw the result up in the air. In the 63rd minute, Canada's Brittany Timko equalized and the comeback had been completed. Both teams searched for the winner but a combination of the heat and the first half fireworks may have sapped both teams. Making her return to the starting lineup was Emily Zurrer, who returned to partner Canadian captain, Kara Lang, in central defense. Sophie Schmidt was shifted forward in a holding role, solidifying Canada's backline. More

Bangkok, Thailand Canada's Women's U19 National Team defeated host nation Thailand this evening 7-0 in front of a raucous crowd of 5,000 at the National Stadium in Bangkok.

Brampton's Tanya Dennis started the rout twelve minutes into the contest when a driven corner off the boot of Veronique Maranda (St-Lambert, QC) found the University of Nebraska based midfielder stationed at the six yard box. Dennis out jumped two Thai defenders and powered home her header for what would eventually serve as the match winner. More

FIFA's Technical Study Group (TSG) gave a resounding nod to sensational Canadian striker Brittany Timko on the first day of action from Thailand 2004. The speedy, powerful midfielder-turned-striker grabbed both in her side's 2-1 Group A win over lacklustre Australia.
Tatjana Haenni (SUI): "consistently dangerous"
"Timko was the only one on the field who took control and really asserted herself on the game. She was always calm and assured, but consistently dangerous. In the senior national team she plays more in the middle, now she moved up to a true striker's role and did very, very well. She had two decent chances and put them in without hesitation. Even when she wasn't scoring she was always dangerous and always moving. Her two strikes were clinical and calm, and killed off the game."

Bangkok, Thailand - Canada's Women's Under-19 team opened the 2004 FIFA U19 Women's World Championship with a hard-fought 2-1 victory over Group A opponent Australia this evening in steamy Bangkok, Thailand. Canada raced out to a two-goal lead early in the contest but Australia quickly grabbed a goal back in the first few moments of the second half. The Aussies searched hard for the equalizer, despite having their goalkeeper sent off midway through the second half, but they failed to find a way past Stacey VanBoxmeer. In the end it was Canada who walked away with full points and a share of top spot in Group A. Both teams looked tentative from the onset and seemed content to battle for control of the middle of the park. But after the 10 minute mark, the Canucks began to stretch the Aussie's and a goal seemed imminent. Brittany Timko was the first to get in behind the Australian back four but as she reached the top of the area, she was hurried into shooting earlier than she had wanted by the Australian defense. The resulting shot sailed high over the goal but the Coquitlam, BC native seemed buoyed by the service she was now receiving. More

After a harrowing journey of well over 26 hours through a host of time zones, Canadian right back Robyn Gayle was surprisingly composed when she sat down to chat with FIFA.com. Just minutes after arriving at the team hotel, the first Canuck to reach the Thai capital and home of Group A took time out to talk football and expectations on the eve of the finals.
"North Carolina to Vancouver, Vancouver to Hong Kong, Hong Kong to Bangkok," she wearily recounted her journey to the prestigious U-19s. "I don't know exactly how long it was, but it sure felt like a long time."
Though she is undecided about her major field of study at university in the United States, the first-year student is clear as day about how she would define success at the upcoming FIFA U-19 Women's World Championship Thailand 2004. More
