Canada selects roster for 2013 CONCACAF Women's U-17 Championship
Posted on 29 October 2013 in ↳ Women's EXCEL U-14 to U-17
With its final roster set, Canada’ Women’s U-17 team is ready to take on the region’s best as the 2013 CONCACAF Women’s U-17 Championship is set to begin.
Canada has trimmed three players from its training camp roster and heads to Montego Bay, JAM with 20 players as goalkeeper Patricia Koutoulas, defender Catherine Levasseur, and forward Gabrielle Carle were all released from the Canadian camp.
“Taking the group from 23 to 20 was a very, very difficult decision,” said Head Coach Bev Priestman. “(It’s) a credit to many girls in the group for rising to the challenge and pushing themselves to show more and more over the course of the programme so far.”
The team travels from Florida, where they held their pre-tournament camp, to Jamaica on Tuesday in advance of their opening game of the competition against Guatemala on 31, October. Two days later, the team will take on Trinidad and Tobago before wrapping up the group stage on 4 November against the defending champions from the USA.
The top two teams in the eight-team tournament earn berths in next year’s 2014 FIFA Women’s U-17 World Cup to be held in Costa Rica.
