Canada will wrap up their group phase at the 2017 CONCACAF Men's Under-17 Championship when they face Suriname on Friday at the Estadio Maracaná Panama. Canada are looking for a positive result after a pair of slim losses in Panama.

The 28 April finale will be broadcast on CONCACAF's Youtube channel at 18.30 ET / 15.30 PT. Canada Soccer will provide in-match coverage from Estadio Maracaná Panama via Canada Soccer's digital channels including Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, and Flickr.

"You want to continue to develop, play proper football, win matches and learn how to win matches," said Paul Stalteri, Canada Soccer's Men's National U-17 Team Coach. "It's another good game in which the players can gain more experience learning how to play in this international environment."

Canada will have Antonio Rocco Romeo back in the lineup after the centre back served a one-match suspension for his red card in the opening match. Canada have also added fullback Terique Mohammed to the lineup, who arrived in Panama after being cleared to play on Wednesday.

"I am excited to be here because we are looking to finish strong and show what we can do," said Terique Mohammed. "I missed the boys, so it's good be back training."

The CONCACAF Men's Under-17 Championship provides an important opportunity for player development along the Canada Soccer Pathway. The Canadian program aims to develop players that are adaptable to play against any opponent while also expanding the players' knowledge of CONCACAF environments and opponents.

Canada Soccer’s Men’s EXCEL Program channels our nation’s exceptional players into the best soccer environments. The Canada Soccer Pathway works in collaboration with our provincial and territorial partners as well as the professional clubs and academies. For Canada’s elite players, the program emphasizes player development on the pathway to representing Canada’s Men’s National Team in international soccer.

As these players develop through the Canadian program, the 2000-born players are also eligible for the upcoming CONCACAF and FIFA U-20 competitions in 2019 as well as the Olympic U-23 cycle through 2020.

Canada were mathematically eliminated on their second one-goal loss at the 2017 CONCACAF Men's Under-17 Championship‎, this time falling 1:2 to rivals Cuba at Estadio Maracaná Panama. In need of a draw or better, Canada pushed their opponents to the end, but were unable to net the equaliser they needed to stay alive in the Group B standings.

MATCH CENTRE - CANADA 1:2 CUBA

Both sides started slow before Canada started to string together a few moments of possession. After a turnover in the 26th minute, however, Cuba pushed down the right side and opened the scoring after capitalising on a rebound.

In the latter part of the first half, Canada started to create more chances, but goalkeeper Danny Echeverria came up big with a pair of diving saves and then another save late in the half with a tip save over the crossbar.

"We came into the game towards the end of that first half," said Paul Stalteri, Canada Soccer's Men's National U-17 Team Coach. "We knew we had 45 minutes to turn the result around, but we couldn't afford to concede that second goals.

"Our backs were really against the wall and we threw everything at them, but it was much harder for us to come back."

Just a few minutes after Jonathan David had headed a corner kick just high over the crossbar, Cuba made it 2-0 after Manuel Cruz slipped through the defence inside the 18-yard box.

After Alessandro Hojabrpour cut the lead in the 71st minute, Canada created chance after chance in the last 20 minutes.

"We fought back and we were pouring on the pressure, but it just didn't happen in the end," said Hojabrpour.

From 12 nations, only four will qualify for the FIFA U-17 World Cup India 2017. In Group B, Costa Rica leads the group with six points ahead of Cuba (four points), Suriname (one point), and Canada.

Canada's final group match will be against Suriname on 28 April at 16.30 ET / 13.30 PT. Canada Soccer will provide in-match coverage from Estadio Maracaná Panama via Canada Soccer's digital channels including Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, and Flickr.

"It will be another international for these boys to experience," said Stalteri. "We weren't good enough to go through from our group games, but it wasn't by a wide margin. It was the small little details that decide games and decide if you advance to that next round."

Canada will look to build on their positive play from the opening match when they face Cuba on Tuesday at the 2017 CONCACAF Men's Under-17 Championship. The two nations will go head-to-head in the Panama heat with a 14.00 local kick off at Estadio Maracaná Panama.

Canada must earn a point or better against their opponents as they continue their qualification route to the FIFA U-17 World Cup India 2017. The match is scheduled to be broadcast live on CONCACAF's YouTube channel at 15.00 ET / 12.00 PT. Canada Soccer will provide in-match coverage via Canada Soccer's digital channels including Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, and Flickr.

"We will prepare our boys for exactly what we want to do and have them ready for Tuesday," said Paul Stalteri, Canada Soccer's Men's National U-17 Team Coach. "We have an idea of how Cuba likes to play and what they like to do, so we have our plan set up and we will attack them accordingly."

Canada opened their competition play on Saturday, going down to 10 men with 10 minutes remaining and then falling 1:2 on a last-minute goal by Costa Rica. Canada will be without their centre back Antonio Rocco Romeo for the Cuba match as the Canadian goal scorer was shown a red card. The tall Romeo had scored Canada's second-half goal on a header from a Jordan Faria corner kick.

"It was a tough, gut-wrenching way to end that game in the last second of the match with no chance to get the goal back," said Stalteri. "We have to build the spirits back up and look forward to the next match against Cuba. Hopefully we can maximize our points and move on from there."

Fans can follow Canada throughout the CONCACAF Men's Under-17 Championship in Panama, with upcoming matches on 25 April (Cuba), and 28 April (Suriname). The 12-nation competition continues through to the championship final on 7 May.
