Canada w20 announces roster for CONCACAF tournament

Posted on 29 February 2012 in ↳ Women's EXCEL U-18 to U-20

Canadian U-20 coach Andrew Olivieri has announced his 20-player roster for the upcoming 2012 CONCACAF Women's Under-20 Championship in Ciudad Panama, Panama. The Canadian team will take part in the eight-team qualification tournament from 1-11 March, with three spots up for grabs to this year's FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup Japan 2012.

Canada arrived in Panama on Monday 27 February after a 15-day camp in San José, Costa Rica. The team will have a couple of training sessions in Panama before opening against Haiti on 1 March.

The Canadian 20-player roster features five returning players from the last CONCACAF Women's Under-20 Championship in January 2010: Dayle Colpitts (goalkeeper), Vanessa Legault-Cordisco, Christabel Oduro, Jenna Richardson, and Shelina Zadorsky. Four other players have come up from the U-17 program that won gold at the CONCACAF Women's Under-17 Championship in March 2010: Sabrina D'Angelo (goalkeeper), Kylie Davis, Nicole Setterlund, and Diamond Simpson. In all, 12 of the 20 players have represented Canada at the CONCACAF or FIFA youth competition since 2008 (at the U-17 or U-20 level).

Also on the Canadian roster is 2010 Canadian U-20 Player of the Year Amélia Pietrangelo as well as former Canadian U-17 Player of the Year Diamond Simpson. Also, eight of Canada's U-20 players have participated in at least one national "A" camp, including Legault-Cordisco, Pietrangelo and Simpson who all won gold with Canada at the 2011 Pan American Games in Guadalajara.

From 1-11 March 2012, Canada will play either three or five international matches. After the Canada-Haiti match, Canada then faces Jamaica on 3 March and Mexico on 5 March. The semi-final matches are 9 March while the final matches are 11 March. All matches will be played at the Estadio Rommel Fernández. Matches will also be televised live online via CONCACAF TV.
