  1. Bev Priestman knows our players and our whole setup. Could be a bit of an advantage for England.
  2. Neil Morris‏ @ByNeilMorris 8h8 hours ago .@TheNCCourage have signed #CANWNT GK Stephanie Labbé, per reliable sources. Official announcement re @stephlabbe1 signing and return to NWSL could come any day.
  3. Canada will play England on Friday April 5 , 2019 at the Academy Stadium ,Manchester City. https://www.bbc.com/sport/football/47129037
  4. ^ red nation will be dead nation , by the time CPL-w arrives. / sarc.
  5. [ 1 ] If the rules for the NWSL distribution process in 2019 are the same as the rules used in 2018 then there is a pathway for Jordyn Huitema to play in the NWSL this year, this season. Huitema would have to really want to play in the NWSL and not care about what team she joined AND the CSA would have to want her playing in the NWSL and then subsidize/allocate Jordyn Huitema upfront.The distribution process from the 2018 NWSL roster rules specify that an allocated Player whose rights have not yet been assigned to an NWSL team is the type of individual who can enter the NWSL via the Distribution process. As for the 18 year old rule, Huitema would obviously have to wait until her 18th birthday in May ( 2019 ) to play her first NWSL match. http://www.nwslsoccer.com/2017-roster-rules It is the current practice for the CSA to wait for a Canadian college player to be drafted by a NWSL club and then subsidize that drafted player after the fact ( if they deem the player to be worth subsidizing in the first place ) This is to avoid what happened to Bryanna Mcarthy in 2013 who joined the WNY Flash straight out of college via allocation by the CSA and who skipped the 2013 NWSL College draft. Long story short, WNY Flash felt that they were saddled with a player they didn't want and they virtually never played McCarthy . Thus by subsidizing the college player after they are drafted the CSA can be sure that a NWSL team wants the player before they subsidize her. But this is just a practice, they don't always have to do it this way . And Jordan Huitema is not Bryanna McCarthy . So if the CSA allocated Huitema up front then my guess is a lot NWSL teams would want to claim her via distribution. That said, the NWSL is full of downsides: Huitema would have no say in what NWSL team would get her-- with suspect sides like Sky Blue or the Washington Spirit potentially having the first crack at her. And Jordan Huitema would play for the CSA subsidized salary which may be less than what she could earn elsewhere. [ 2 ] A little Sky Blue pile on: - Players don't go to Sky Blue. Players end up in Sky Blue. /sarc. - Sky Blue . The destination team for condemned soccer players./sarc
  6. Asif Burhan‏ @AsifBurhan 2h2 hours ago Tonight at @PinatarArena, @CanadaSoccerEN's @sincy12becomes the first football player, male or female, to score an international goal in 20 successive calendar years, surpassing the world record set by Japan's Homare Sawa. A phenomenal achievement.
  7. Looks like the training match between Switzerland and Canada ended in a goaless draw : https://twitter.com/SFV_ASF/status/1085931233266360320
  8. ^Page 98 of the Lima 2019 pdf file . There are paragraphs in the middle about CONMEBOL & CONCACAF confirming quota places between April 1, 2019 to April 15, 2019. Then a reallocation of unused quota places on April 20, 2019. It also lists the "entry by number deadline " as April 26, 2019 . So maybe some time around then? https://www.panamsports.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/Qualification-System-Manual-Lima-2019-3.pdf
  9. So it's official: Adriana Leon ( ex-NWSL ) signs with West Ham United : https://www.whufc.com/news/articles/2019/january/12-january/canada-attacker-adriana-leon-joins-west-ham-united
  10. 2019 NWSL College Draft: The Chicago Red Stars take Bianca St Georges ( WVU ) in the third round , number 20 overall. Apparently, St Georges has an American-born parent so she's applying for dual citizenship ( Can-USA) .

  12. No schedule yet for the 2019 Algarve Cup , but according to fpf.pt Canada is in group A with ( 22 ) Iceland and ( 20 ) Scotland. It seems that the tournament is going with 4 groups of three instead of 3 groups of four -- like in past editions: Grupo A Canadá (5.º), Islândia (22.º) e Escócia (20.º) Grupo B Espanha (12.º), Holanda (7.º) e Polónia (34.º) Grupo C Noruega (13.º), Dinamarca (17.º) e China (15.º) Grupo D Suécia (9.º), Suíça (18.º) e Portugal (32.º) https://www.fpf.pt/News/Todas-as-notícias/Notícia/news/19966/contextid/1111
  13. Even though her contract extended into 2019, Stephanie Labbe and Linkopings parted ways at the end of November 2018. So at the moment, Stephanie Labbe's current club soccer situation is a little unclear/murky. The worst imaginable case scenario here is that she's a sans club player going into the 2019 WWC France. https://www.svt.se/sport/fotboll/linkoping-dumpar-malvakt-och-varvar-ny https://www.mvt.se/sport/lfc/avslojar-malvaktsstjarnan-lamnar-linkoping-om5571587.aspx
  14. The Seattle Reign have relinquished the NWSL rights to Adriana Leon. There is apparently some unspecified interest in her from Europe. But she'll have to go through the NWSL distribution process first to see if another NWSL side will claim her. https://www.oursportscentral.com/services/releases/seattle-reign-fc-elects-not-to-retain-rights-to-forward-adriana-leon/n-5433751 Matt Beard is now coaching West Ham United in the FA WSL and when he was running the Boston Breakers in 2017 he contacted Adriana Leon ( then in Europe ) and brought her back to the NWSL . Maybe history repeating itself?
  15. An updated ( January 3 , 2019 ) preliminary list of players eligible for the 2019 NWSL College Draft includes two more Canadians: -Erica Hubert forward/mid Bowling Green State University - Sarah Kinzner midfielder University of Colorado (Canadian American Devon Kerr also declares for the draft ) http://www.nwslsoccer.com/news#updated-preliminary-list-of-players-eligible-for-2019-nwsl-college-draft
  16. footofeminin.fr reporting that the twelve tournament participants for the 2019 Algarve Cup have been settled and Canada is among them. Other tournaments also updated .

  17. Easther Maya Kith ( defender WVU ) is skipping the 2019 NWSL College Draft and signs a pro contract with Montpellier Herault Sport Club in Division 1 Feminine (D1F) -- the top women's league in France. Chris Henderson's preliminary mock draft had Maya Kith ranked at # 53 while topdrawersoccer.com had Maya Kith ranked at # 11 in the Big 12. https://www.football-addict.com/fr/article/feminines/easther-mayi-kith-rejoint-le-mhsc-officiel/5c2d0608c8c9080439372a32?utm_campaign=post-auto&utm_medium=twitter&utm_source=footfeminin-addict https://www.topdrawersoccer.com/college-soccer/college-player-profile/easther-mayi-kith/cpid-88009 http://www.allwhitekit.com/?p=16817
  18. Nothing confirmed, but it looks like Cameroon ( in group E with Canada ) and Belgium are working towards scheduling a friendly to be played in May ( 2019 ) in Belgium . https://www.camer.be/72266/7:1/belgium-belgique-vs-cameroun-les-lionnes-indomptables-face-au-pays-deden-hazard.html
  19. 1. Christine Sinclair 2. Ashley Lawrence 3. Shelina Zadorsky.
  20. The 2019 NWSL College Draft is scheduled for January 10, 2019, 12 pm ET/ 9 am PT http://www.nwslsoccer.com/collegedraft A very early preliminary list of eligible players includes 3 Canadians: - Olivia Gauthier , University of Memphis -Nadya Gill, WVU /Quinnipiac University -Marie Levasseur , University of Memphis https://www.prosoccerusa.com/nwsl/nwsl-releases-preliminary-list-of-players-eligible-for-2019-draft/
  21. In June 2016, Vera Pauw ( then in charge of Banyana Banyana ) was able to use some influence a score an invite from the KNVB to play a friendly in the Netherlands -- which South Africa lost. So the most recent meeting between these two countries was because of Vera Pauw. https://www.knvb.nl/nieuws/oranje/oranjeleeuwinnen/18727/van-de-sanden-en-martens-niet-inzetbaar-tegen-zuid-afrika Plus , Vera Pauw still maintains connections with Banyana Banyana: the current Banyana Banyana performance analyst Shilene Booysen was with Pauw with the Houston Dash. In fact, the women soccer community of South Africa still hold Vera Pauw in high regard. So it's plausible that Vera Pauw had a role in arranging the upcoming Netherlands vs SA fixture, but if not then it might have been arranged by connections that Pauw helped to broker in the first place.
  22. There's a more relevant women soccer connection between Netherlands and South Africa : Vera Pauw. Vera Pauw managed the Netherlands ( OranjeLeewinnen ) between 2004 -2010 and managed South Africa ( Banyana Banyana ) between 2014-2016. Pauw recently returned to Holland after parting ways with the Houston Dash (September 2018 ) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vera_Pauw https://www.houstondynamo.com/post/2018/09/20/houston-dash-coach-vera-pauw-departs-club-return-holland
  23. Swedish blogger also confirms that Canada is likely going to Algarve. In fact, it's his opinion that there are too many unfilled tournament spots and not enough strong countries to fill them: https://damfotbollblog.wordpress.com/
  24. ^No. Your paragraph was about bashing Peter Montopoli . That Peter Montopoli is bad for Canadian women soccer because he is incapable of starting a Four Nations womens Tournament . Then you said " But hey, they're only women, right? And we all know how well the FIGC treat their women. " You use the acronymn FIGC vaguely but then cite examples of all kinds of bad behavior in Italian women soccer. But that just makes it worse for you because Montopoli has NO CONNECTION to any of that bad behavior ( he was not a party to it ) The only perceivable connection here is his Italianess -- and that's the smear based on race.
  25. You might want to be carefull, that last sentence reads like a smear towards Italians and Italian Canadians -- a negative insinuation based on race.
