New to the World Cup roster is Emily Zurrer of Crofton, BC who was recently named MVP at the CONCACAF U-19 Qualifying Tournament where Canada defeated the United States in extra time and claimed a berth at the FIFA U-19 Women’s World Championship in Thailand. Other U-19 team players on this roster include Aysha Jamani, Kara Lang, Véronique Maranda, and Brittany Timko. All four have earned caps at the senior level. “This game will add experience to the younger players on the team,” said head coach Even Pellerud. “We are looking at what impact the younger generation of players will have at the senior level. Presently, the U-19 team is our priority heading into November.” The game, which will be played at the home of the Tennessee Titans of the NFL, will mark the 34th time these two rivals have faced each other. The US defeated Canada 2-0 at the Four Nations Tournament in China on February 3 and came away with a 3-1 win in the 2003 Women’s World Cup Third Place Match in October. This will be Canada’s first game since the CONCACAF Olympic Qualifying Tournament in Costa Rica in March. Rogers Sportsnet will carry the game on all four digital networks on a delay basis.
