2017 Three Nations (youth) Tournament Canberra


Recommended Posts

[ 1 ]  Unsure there is any way to follow this. Canada is sending a U20 team  and Moscato and Wilkinson will be doing some  co-managing/co-leading  with Priestman. The US is sending a U18 team  ( their U20 team is in Europe right now ). And  Australia is fielding a U19 team.




[ 2 ]  MATCH ONE:   U20 CANWNT vs U-18 WNT :   July 6, 2017 3:30 AEST;  July 6, 2017 1:30 am ET,  July 5, 2017 10:30 pm PT

        MATCH TWO:  U20 CANWNT vs U19 Young Matildas: July 8, 2017 10 am AEST,  July 7, 2017 8:00 pm ET,  July 7 2017 5:00 pm PT

Huh!  It's off-topic, but the CanadaSoccerEN twitter feed is announcing an official bid committee for jointly hosting the 2026 World Cup with USA and Mexico.  Maybe the guys at the CSA are a bit distracted from the youth tournament today.

^  When it comes to Canadian women's soccer and Canadian men's soccer I think there is an  equality of treatment but there's not an equality of enthusiasm. Most of the stakeholders of soccer in Canada are men and most of the CSA  leadership are men; and these men love their soccer. They live it; they breathe it;  and it's on their minds 24 / 7 right down to the individual nano-second.  From this enthusiasm, ( at least from their twitter account  ) the CSA can be  very attentive to all the details of men's soccer but at times,  they  do not demonstrate the same attentiveness for  women's soccer. I think this is an unintended slight,  but it does come across as indifferent and thoughtless.

[ 2 ]  NOTES:

 I think U20 CANWNT will have a tougher fight today.  17 of the Young Matildas made appearances in the Australian W-League last season -- 14 of them played regularly. The 1999s on this list scored collectively 14 W League goals last year. Of note,  Remy Siemsen's 6 goals placed her sixth on the Top Scorer list , tied with Jess Fishlock and Katie Stengel. Jada Mathyssen-Whyman  was  Western City Wanderers starting keeper for nearly the whole season. And Ellie Carpenter is being touted as the second-coming of Caitlin Foord ,  ( she was also  with the Matildas squad  at the 2016 RIo Olympics ).


UPDATE:  the match is being live-tweeted by thewomensgame:




- Carmelina Moscato is listed as the coach. Interesting point :Carmelina Moscato and Ellie Carpenter were teammates on the backline for Western City Wanderers in 2015-16.

Half time. What a contest. Aus with the majority of possession and attack, but Can with some excellent waves on goal as well. #AUSvCAN 0-0

53' GOAL! Australia - Chidiac onto a through ball, takes it past one, slips it by the keeper from just inside the 18 yard line. #AUSvCAN 1-0
