Canada Soccer have announced their squad for the FIFA U-17 World Cup Brazil 2019, an exciting next step for Canada’s young footballers at the international level on their path to the Men’s National Team. This will mark Canada’s 15th participation at a FIFA men’s youth tournament since 1979 and their first at the FIFA U-17 World Cup since 2011.
 
Canada will open against Brazil on Saturday 26 October and then face Angola on Tuesday 29 October and New Zealand on Friday 1 November. All three of Canada’s group matches will be played at Estádio Walmir Campelo Bezerra in Brasilia and be broadcast live back home on TSN and RDS. The Knockout Phase runs from 5 November through to the Final on 17 November. Extended match day coverage will be featured across Canada Soccer’s digital channels including Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

“It’s been a big year for our Men’s EXCEL Program with semi-final finishes at both the Concacaf Men’s Under-17 Championship and Concacaf Boys’ Under-15 Championship,” said Andrew Olivieri, Canada Soccer’s Men’s EXCEL U-14 to U-17 Program Director. “What an exciting time to not only be in Brazil, but also to play Brazil in the opening match.”
 
The FIFA U-17 World Cup Brazil 2019 will provide Canada’s young players with a chance to take part in meaningful international competition, which provides an important step in the development pathway while also allowing Canada Soccer’s Men’s EXCEL Program to identify future players for the Men’s National Team.
 
Canada’s final squad features 21 players who started their Canadian soccer journeys from 18 different clubs across the nation. Players in this group were all born 2002 or 2003, also making them eligible for future youth competitions en route to the next FIFA U-20 World Cup cycle in 2021 as well as the Men’s Olympic Tournament in 2024.
 
Canada have been diligent in synergizing its Men’s EXCEL Program with the professional clubs in Canada as part of a NEX-PRO integration strategy, formalising the monitoring and tracking systems, periodising competition programs, and aligning calendars ahead of the international competition in May. Canada Soccer have worked hand-in-hand with the professional clubs as well as provincial and territorial members in their own environments, evaluating a wider base of players while working together with the clubs to develop players both on and off the field on the pathway to the Men’s National Team.
 
“A big part of our success has been the alignment across the country from our provinces to our professional academies,” said Olivieri. “It has been wonderful how they have supported our program and helped us identify new talents. Then to top it all off with our integration camps, it has been an exciting year for the Men’s National Team Program.”
 
Ahead of the opening match, Canada trained for 12 days in Argentina, including international matches against Mexico and Argentina. Earlier this year, Canada reached the semi-finals of the Concacaf Men’s Under-17 Championship after posting three wins, one draw and two losses in six international matches in May.
