U20 Teams Name Training Camp Squads

Dale Mitchell and Ian Bridge

Ottawa, Ontario – Both of Canada’s U20 National Teams have named their respective rosters for upcoming training camps in late 2005. However, both head coaches are certainly looking to achieve different things when their squads convene next week.

Dale Mitchell, Canada’s Men’s U20 Head Coach, has announced a squad of 16 players that will meet for a brief training stint in Vaughan, ON from December 18-23, 2005. The team will play two scrimmages during that period – December 21 against Seneca College and on December 23 against the University of Toronto. Both matches will be played at the Soccer Centre in Vaughan.

Mitchell has targeted this camp to have a specific look at players available in Eastern Canada.

'Any time we can get our players together and work with them we want to take advantage of that, and get as much out of it as possible,” said Mitchell. “This camp in Toronto will allow us to continue to work with some of the players from our last trip to England and assess some new boys from Eastern Canada.”

Mitchell also added that “preparations for 2007 will continue in early January 2006 with our participation in the Chivas Cup in Guadalajara, Mexico.'

The Chivas Cup will take place from January 7-14, 2006 with the Canadians setting up camp from January 2nd. The draw and fixture list for the tournament has not been completed.

Unlike Mitchell, Canada’s U20 Women’s Head Coach, Ian Bridge, has more pressing concerns.

Bridge will assemble his team in Ft. Lauderdale, FL from December 28 to January 8, 2006 and is preparing for the U20 Women’s CONCACAF Qualifying Tournament that is scheduled to take place ten days after his training camp ends. Therefore, it is expected that Bridge will not only have to make some final decisions regarding his squad during the training camp in Ft. Lauderdale, but will have to make sure that this group is prepared for what they will face in Mexico shortly afterward.

'This is of course a very important preparation camp for the team just before CONCACAF qualifying - less than two weeks after this camp finishes,” said Bridge. “With those time lines, I don’t see many changes - if at all - between this squad and the squad that will go to Mexico and try to win the first ever CONCACAF U20 Women’s Championship.”

A quick glance at Bridge’s team gives a clear illustration of the experience and depth available - a point that is certainly not lost on the 46 year-old.

“Team play, formations, patterns and details will be a big focus for us in Florida. What will certainly help is the fact that we have 11 players at this camp who were on the U19 team that qualified for Thailand in 2004, so I think we have players who know how to compete and how to win.”

Bridge was also quick to point out that the steady flow of young, talented Canadian women that we have grown accustomed to seeing, has not dried-up.

“But as with earlier teams, we also have some exciting young talents mixed-in amongst the group that are learning fast and are pushing the 'veterans' - if you can call 19 year-olds veterans.'

CONCACAF has recently released the fixtures for the upcoming U20 Women’s Qualifying Tournament.

The eight-team tournament, which will qualify three CONCACAF nations to the 2006 FIFA Women’s U-20 World Championship in Russia from August 16 – September 2, will be played at the Estadio Rafael Murillo Vidal and Estadio Luis Pirata Fuentes in the cities of Córdoba and Veracruz, respectively.

Canada, the defending CONCACAF champion, has been grouped with tournament host, Mexico, along with Panama and Trinidad & Tobago in Group A. Meanwhile, Group B has El Salvador, alongside the USA, Jamaica, and Surinam.

The Group A matches will take place at the Estadio Luis Pirata Fuentes, while the Estadio Rafael Murillo Vidal will stage the first round Group B fixtures.

The winners and runners-up of each group will earn a place in the event’s semifinals at Veracruz’s Estadio Luis Pirata Fuentes on January 25, with the winners of the semifinal games earning a place as CONCACAF representatives in FIFA’s U-20 Women’s World Championship.

CONCACAF’s third spot in the FIFA event will be determined by a third-place play-off game between the two losing semifinalists at the Estadio Luis Pirata Fuentes on January 27, before the two finalists meet for the CONCACAF Women’s U-20 crown later in the day.
