Canada have advanced to the semi-finals after back-to-back wins at the CONCACAF Boys’ Under-15 Championship. Canada finished second in their group following a 3:0 win over Trinidad and Tobago on Wednesday morning at the IMG Center in Bradenton, FL, USA.

Canada will next face Mexico on 17 August in the first of two semi-final matches followed by USA v Panama in the other Thursday semi-final. Fans can follow Canada’s team at the 2017 CONCACAF Boys’ Under-15 Championship across Canada Soccer’s digital channels including in-match updates on Twitter.

“It will be a tough match, but it will be a very good test for our boys to see where they are in their development,” said coach Paul Stalteri. “It is great to have this competition and if you win (against Mexico) you are in the final.”

Over three matches in four days, Canada won two matches to finish second in Group B of the CONCACAF Boys’ Under-15 Championship Division 1. After an 0:2 loss to USA on Sunday, Canada won 3:0 over Costa Rica on Monday and 3:0 over Trinidad and Tobago on Wednesday.

“Each match has provided our players the chance to play together, to get to know each other, and for the coaches to get to know our players,” said Stalteri. “They have had three matches in four days in the heat, but the boys have handled the week very well and managed to score six goals in the last two matches.”

Malik Henry, Matthew Radivojsa, and Sean Rea scored against Costa Rica while Jérémie Omeonga-Nkoy (two) and Cameron Da Silva scored against Trinidad and Tobago. Goalkeeper Marc Kouadio posted back-to-back clean sheets. All 18 Canadian players featured across the three matches, with each match 70 minutes in length. The competition features players born 2002 or later, which means the players are eligible for FIFA/CONCACAF competitions at the U-17 level in 2019, the U-20 level until 2021, and the Olympic/U-23 level until 2024.

“This is an important age group as the players are at an age that you can affect positively over the coming years,” said Octavio Zambrano, Canada Soccer’s Men’s National Team Program Head Coach. “It is the right opportunity to share the philosophy as to how we want them to play as well as the methodology as to how we want them to train."

Canada Soccer selected their squad from more than 140 players that have featured in either Men’s EXCEL identification camps or the Canada Soccer U-15 Showcase for players born 2002 or later.

Canada Soccer's future stars were on display this week as more than 100 young players from across the country were in Toronto. The Men's National Team Program had the opportunity to watch and engage with young prospects taking part in the third annual Canada Soccer U-15 Showcase.

The 10-match, round-robin 2017 showcase featured a Canadian select squad and the academy/residency squads from Vancouver Whitecaps FC, FC Edmonton, Toronto FC, and Impact Montréal FC. In all, 26 goals were scored throughout the week, with six of the 10 matches separated by just one goal.

Since 2015, more than 200 players have participated in the Canada Soccer U-15 Showcase. From the first year, a few players like Michael Baldisimo, Jonathan David, Alphonso Davies, Julian Dunn-Johnson, Jordan Faria, and Benson Fazili have already started to make their mark at the professional and/or international levels.

Players at the 2017 Canada Soccer U-15 Showcase are all born 2002 or later, making them eligible in FIFA/CONCACAF competitions at the U-17 level in 2019, the U-20 level until 2021, and the Olympics/U-23 level until 2024.

As part of Canada Soccer's Men's EXCEL Program, the 2017 showcase provides Canada Soccer with an early opportunity for both education to young players as well as scouting by national, provincial/territorial, and professional coaches.

The Canada Soccer U-15 Showcase is organised in co-operation with technical directors from provincial and territorial associations as well as the professional academies. The Canadian select team features players not currently attached to one of the four academy/residency squads, thus ensuring that players from across the country have an opportunity to showcase their talents at a young age.
