I would have thought they would try to split up the non-African teams.

Anyway, this could be great international experience for some of the guys from the U20 team we sent to Costa Rica.  It should also be a chance for some new faces as some Europe-based players might be in pre-season.

That squad would almost (?) qualify as just being referred to as a U-21 team for that Quebec national team that Patrick Leduc was coaching. Although the coaching staff has CSA written all over it

It's a team Canada-Quebec. CSA was a partner in bringing this team.

Too bad only the top team in the group moves onto the semifinals. Canada and Congo finished tied with 6 points, but they moved on with a better goal differential. I have no idea how strong Frances team was (since it is essentially a tournament about them, I assume they would take it somewhat seriously), but we finished ahead of them
