Canada kicked off their two-match Men's U-20 International Friendly series with an away 1:0 victory over host Panama on Thursday 19 January. The two sides continue the series on Saturday as part of both nations' preparations for the 2017 CONCACAF Men's Under-20 Championship.

Shaan Hundal scored the lone goal of the match in the fourth minute while Dayne St. Clair and Thomas Hasal each posted clean sheets while splitting the goalkeeping duties at Estadio Agustín Muquita Sánchez.

"The work rate and the commitment were there," said Rob Gale, Canada Soccer's Men's National U-20 Team Coach. "It was important that some of our players got through 90 minutes (from which) we can now build on this base. We will continue to build our fitness and strength (as) we keep moving forward."

Canada are now in important stretch with less than a month remaining until the opening match of the CONCACAF Men's Under-20 Championship. Canada will kick off against Honduras on 17 February in San José, Costa Rica. Canada will also face Mexico (20 February) as well as Antigua & Barbuda (23 February) in a difficult group that will advance only two nations to the second round.

From 12 nations split into three groups, four nations will qualify for the FIFA U-20 World Cup Korea Republic 2017. After the opening group phase, six nations play two or three more matches through to the CONCACAF final on 5 March.

In Panama, Canada have traveled with a group of 19 players after a successful camp in Toronto. Sixteen of those players featured in the Thursday win over Panama, with the full rotation of 19 players expected to share the minutes over the pair of international matches.

Beyond Panama, Canada will have one more camp in early February in Mexico. The travel and away camps will help support Canada's preparations for the CONCACAF Men's Under-20 Championship, but also help the overall development of the players in Canada Soccer's Men's EXCEL Program.

For Canada's elite players, the program emphasizes player development on the pathway to representing Canada's Men's National Team in international soccer.

Canada will face Panama in a pair of away Men's U-20 International Friendly soccer ‎matches on 19 and 21 January. The two matches provide Canada with another chance to build match fitness and assess player development ahead of the 2017 CONCACAF Men's Under-20 Championship in February.

"This was an important camp to push the players both in terms of competition and fitness," said Rob Gale, Canada Soccer's Men's National U-20 Team Coach. "All the players applied themselves as they understood the internal competition to make the final team."

‎The camp featured some of, but not all, the players that have been part of the larger pool preparing for the 12-nation CONCACAF competition, from which only four will advance to the FIFA U-20 World Cup Korea Republic 2017.

From a group of 30 players, which included nine national youth program debutants, 19 have been selected for travel to Panama.

"These two matches provide us another opportunity for player assessment‎," said Gale. "Panama are big, strong, and fast, especially in attacking transition."

From the group of players traveling to Panama, only Diego Gutiérrez has yet to make his international youth debut. Coach Gale hopes ‎to ‎give his group as much playing time over the two-match series. Already last year, the U-20 group have traveled and played international matches in Costa Rica and Honduras. Following the Panama camp, the group will travel to Mexico for one final preparation camp before the CONCACAF Men's Under-20 Championship in Costa Rica.

From the camp in Toronto, only David Choinière was ruled out for travel on account of an injury (sprain). Choinière has returned to his club Impact Montréal FC for treatment.

Canada Soccer's Men's EXCEL Program continues to identify players as a result of their scouting and collaborative work with provincial and territorial partners as well as the professional clubs and academies. Six more players have been invited to the Men's U-20 camp in Toronto for two days of training. 

The 2017 invitees are Duwayne Ewart (Scarborough, ON) and program debutants Steven Lovell (Hamilton, ON), Nicholas Machado (Brampton, ON), Alex Markovic (Hamilton, ON), Ignazio Muccelli (Vaughan, ON), and Rachaun Palmer (Brampton). The six players expanded the group to 30 players for at least Friday and Saturday, 13-14 January. From this group, 20 players will travel to Panama for a pair of international matches on 19 and 21 January.

"We are happy to have them in with the group to provide additional competition ahead of our selection for Panama," said Rob Gale, Canada Soccer's Men's National U-20 Team Coach. "It's important that we continue to widen our player pool as we build towards the CONCACAF Men's Under-20 Championship."

Since 2012, Canada Soccer's Men's EXCEL Program has supported 80 players from the 1997 age group through 1,919 camp days in the national youth program. The program emphasizes player development and provides accumulating experience through international competition. At the heart of the Men's EXCEL Program is the development of footballers capable of playing international football for Canada Soccer's Men’s National Team.

"It is vital to expand our pool as some players will be ready now and some will be ready in the future," said Gale. "We continue to assess where they are in their development and it is important that we expose them to international football and our Canadian game model."

Canada trains in Toronto and Panama from 12-22 January, then in Mexico from 27 January to 4 February. The CONCACAF Men's Under-20 Championship runs 17 February to 6 March in Costa Rica. Canada will select 20 players, born 1997 or later, for the CONCACAF Men's Under-20 Championship.
