Canadian U-17 women soccer team to face Chile in Santiago

The Canadian Soccer Association has announced that its national women’s U-17 will play a pair of international friendly matches against Chile in Santiago, Chile. The CONCACAF champions will hold a 10-day camp in Santiago from 25 July to 3 August and play two matches against Chile’s women’s U-17 team on 28 July and 1 August. In between the two matches, it will play a third exhibition match against Chile’s women’s U-21 team.


Canadian national coach Bryan Rosenfeld has selected 22 players for this camp, many of whom helped Canada win the 2010 CONCACAF Women’s Under-17 Championship in Costa Rica in March. Canada is currently preparing for the FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup Trinidad and Tobago 2010.


"This is our last opportunity to select players before we go into the final preparation phase for the FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup," said coach Rosenfeld. "The three matches (in five days) will provide our staff with the best opportunity to see the players perform."

Canada, whose title sponsor is BMO Financial Group, will have a final camp in late August before departing for Trinidad and Tobago. The FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup runs this 5-25 September. Canada’s three opponents in the group phase will be Ghana, Ireland and Brazil. Two years ago, Canada reached the quarter-final stage of the inaugural FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup New Zealand 2008.
