Canada has already reached its #1 goal at the CONCACAF U17 championships, earning a trip to this autumn's FIFA U17 World Cup, with a 4-2 victory over Jamaica on Saturday night
And while the boys have had 48 hours to revel in the thrill of qualifying
, head coach Sean Fleming says it's right back to work for the team, as they prepare for the CONCACAF semifinal against the host side, Panama, on Wednesday night.
"Two years ago, we did make it to the final (of the CONCACAF championship) and we lost in extra time to the U.S.," Fleming told the media on Monday. "We want to win our confederation championship."
Canada did defeat Panama in the semifinals of the 2011 tournament. But with some home-team gamesmanship already underway and a big, hostile crowd expected at the Estadio Rommel Fernandez in Panama City, Fleming knows getting back to the final won't be easy.
