With their moment in the world soccer spotlight almost at hand, Canada’s Women’s U-20 Team nears the home stretch in their preparations for the FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup Canada 2014.
Head Coach Andrew Olivieri will assemble a squad of 19-players on the west coast for a 10-day camp based out of the Fortius Sport and Health Complex in Burnaby, BC.
Players will assemble on Saturday 31 May with training getting underway the next day. The camp will be highlighted with a pair of closed-doors U-20 Women’s International Friendly matches against Korea Republic on Saturday 7 June and Tuesday 10 June. Korea Republic are the current reigning U-19 Women’s Asian Champions.
Olivieri last assembled his team in Portland, Oregon, USA in March and aiming to have his team on the same page by the time the FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup rolls around in August.
Following this June camp, the group will intensify its activities in the lead up to the FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup Canada 2014 by holding a camp in Vancouver 24 June to 10 July before heading out to Mexico for another pair of preparatory matches 16-21 July.
Canada’s U-20 World Cup campaign gets underway with two games at BMO Field in Toronto on Tuesday 5 August against Ghana and Friday 8 August against Finland. They’ll then head to Montreal for their third game of Group A play on Tuesday 12 August against Korea DPR.
