NE Posted May 9, 2005 Share Posted May 9, 2005 Hart Selects Team for CONCACAF Qualifying Stephen Hart Ottawa, Ontario – Men’s Junior (U-17) Team Head Coach Stephen Hart has chosen 18-players for CONCACAF Junior (U17) Final Round Group B Qualifying from May 17-21, 2005 in Culiacan, Mexico. Canada will compete against Haiti, Honduras, and host Mexico for CONCACAF’s second spot in the 2005 FIFA U-17 World Championship in Peru from September 15 – October 2, 2005. The United States earned a spot in the Championship in CONCACAF Final Round Group A Qualifying, held in April. Costa Rica, who finished second in Group A, will meet the runner-up from Group B, in a home-and-home playoff series for the third CONCACAF berth to the FIFA event. “Every player knows what is required of them; this is the first step because we have to enter this competition with a belief in each other,” said Hart. “Unfortunately, we have had a few set backs in recent weeks and will likely face a few more as we near our first game against Honduras but I am of the opinion that these will only serve to make us stronger and more focused for the task.” Marinko Maras (Vancouver, BC) who plays for Kaiserslautern FC in Germany will be available for qualifying. Maras was unavailable due to injury for Hart’s camp and friendlies in April. The team will assemble in Ft Lauderdale, Florida on Wednesday, May 12 for a brief training camp before traveling to Mexico on Sunday, May 15, 2005.
