A late goal from Andersen Williams gave Canada a 2:1 victory over Haiti and secured the young Canadians’ spot at the FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup Uruguay 2018. All the scoring was done in the second half, with Canada's Jordyn Huitema and Haiti's Melchie Dumonay the goalscorers before the Williams winner in the 89th minute. With the win, Canada finished in third place at the Concacaf Women’s Under-17 Championship in Bradenton, FL, USA.

CANADA 2:1 HAITI : MATCH CENTRE

The FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup Uruguay 2018 runs 13 November to 1 December in Colonia del Sacramento, Montevideo, and Maldonado. Canada, Mexico, and USA will join 13 other nations in Uruguay.
 
"We are really happy for the group because we knew it would be a very tough match to get to the FIFA U-17 Women's World Cup," said Bev Priestman, Canada Soccer’s Women’s National EXCEL Director U-15 to U-23. "Across the tournament, we were really impressed with the group and how everyone committed to their task."
 
Williams headed home the match winner past a cluster of Haitian defenders in the 89th minute. Huitema was the first player to get her head on the long Julianne Vallerand corner kick, knocking the ball back to where Williams was positioned just a few feet from the goal.
 
Canada opened the scoring in the 48th minute after Caitlin Shaw put a long ball over the top of Haiti’s defenders to spring Huitema, who calmly side-footed the ball past Madelina Fleuriot into the back of the net. Haiti equalized with just over 10 minutes remaining in the second half on a Melchie Dumonay penalty kick.
 
The Concacaf Women’s Under-17 Championship provides Canada’s young players with invaluable tournament experience, where they must adapt to hot temperatures and the different styles of play of their opponents.

"Within this tournament, there have been opportunities for the players to learn and that has been evident from the first match," said Priestman. "That learning must continue as the players push to get better along their journey to Canada Soccer's Women's National Team. Qualifying for the FIFA U-17 Women's World Cup Uruguay 2018 will help our players in their journey."
 
Canada finished the group stage as runners-up in Group B behind the United States with two wins and one loss to advance to the semi-finals. A 1:2 loss to Mexico in the semi-final meant that Canada needed to win the third-place match against Haiti to appear at their sixth consecutive FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup. They managed that in the Tuesday 12 June match.

Operating across the U-14 to U-20 age groups, the program is designed to deliver an aligned talent structure and system that progresses more top players to Canada Soccer’s Women’s National Team.

Additionally, the most talented U-14 to U-18 players are offered a specialised daily training environment through the Regional EXCEL Program, which is delivers Canada Soccer’s national curriculum year-round through a two-tiered talent system, with three Super Centres streamlining Canada Soccer’s EXCEL players into training environments in British Columbia, Ontario and Québec from the smaller provincial-licensed centres.
 
Since 2002, Canada Soccer’s Women’s National Youth Teams have won four Concacaf titles: the 2004 and 2008 Concacaf Women’s Under-20 Championship, the 2010 Concacaf Women’s Under-17 Championship, and the 2014 Concacaf Girls’ Under-15 Championship. Canada have qualified for seven editions of the FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup (including a silver medal at Canada 2002) and all five editions of the FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup.

 

The young Canadians will have to wait until Tuesday to earn a spot at the FIFA Women’s Under-17 World Cup Uruguay 2018 after falling to Mexico 1:2 in the Concacaf Women’s Under-17 Championship semi-final. Teni Akindoju scored the lone goal for Canada, who will play for third place against Haiti.

Canada will next face Haiti in the Concacaf bronze medal match on 12 June, with the match broadcast live via Youtube.com/concacaf kicking off at 10.00 local / 10.00 ET / 07.00 PT. In addition, exclusive behind-the scenes content and post-match commentary are available on Canada Soccer’s digital channels including Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.

"We have shown our quality in this competition to advance‎, but we need to turn it up and do what we have to do on Tuesday," said Bev Priestman, Canada Soccer’s Women’s National EXCEL Director U-15 to U-23. "We believe we have the qualities in our squad, but that spot is not ours: we have to take it. It is about showing up and delivering what we need in order to qualify for the FIFA U-17 Women's World Cup Uruguay 2018."

Canada trailed after just six minutes after Anette Vazquez headed a long, high cross into the net to put Mexico in the lead. The winning goal was scored late in the first half from a penalty kick that was converted by Nicole Perez.

Akindoju had scored the equaliser for the young Canadians in the 37th minute. Jordyn Huitema made a great drive to the goal line and put the cross in on the ground. Akindoju's right-footed shot sailed into the far side of the Mexican net. Less than a minute later, Canadian goalkeeper Anna Karpenko made huge fingertip save to keep the score tied one all.

Canada earned their sixth straight appearance in a Concacaf Women’s Under-17 Championship semi-final after finishing second in Group B with two wins and one loss and allowing only two goals in group play. They will either face Group A runners-up Haiti, who finished with two wins and a draw, or Group B winners USA, who handed the Canadians their only group play loss, a 0:1 defeat to take the top spot.

Under an aligned Women’s EXCEL Program, the 20 Canadian players have collectively accumulated more than 2,000 player days in Canada Soccer’s women’s youth program. Through four matches, 19 players have featured at the 2018 Concacaf Women’s Under-17 Championship.

The FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup Uruguay 2018 runs 13 November to 1 December in Colonia del Sacramento, Montevideo, and Maldonado. Along with the two Sunday winners, one more Concacaf nation will qualify on Tuesday for Uruguay 2018.

Canada have advanced as the second-place team from Group B after a narrow 0:1 defeat to USA at the Concacaf Women’s Under-17 Championship. With five goals scored and just two conceded across three group matches, Canada now prepare for Mexico for a shot at the FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup Uruguay 2018.

CANADA 0:1 USA : MATCH CENTRE

“We can now look ahead to Mexico: we know that they are a good side and that we will have to be at our best to get to the FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup Uruguay 2018,” said Bev Priestman, Canada Soccer’s Women’s National EXCEL Director U-15 to U-23. “We closed the group with a real resilient performance against USA while starting eight new players and using that depth in our squad. We are so proud of our squad.”
 
Canada finished the group stage with two wins and one loss. They began the tournament with a 3:0 victory over Bermuda and followed that up with a 2:1 victory against Costa Rica before the loss to USA.
 
At the end of the first half, Canadian goalkeeper Anna Karpenko made a huge block on breakaway scoring opportunity for American Kate Weisner to keep the scored tied 0:0. It was not her first big save of the match, as she made a number of key stops, including a diving save that stopped the USA shot from going into the top corner in the 18th minute. Canada’s best chance came late in the first half when Serita Thurton rang her shot off the crossbar. The two teams were deadlocked until the 65th minute when Reilyn Turner headed in the match winner from a high corner kick for the United States.
 
Mexico finished first in Group A, defeating Nicaragua 8:0 and Puerto Rico 7:0 before playing to a 1:1 draw with Haiti. Both Mexico and Haiti finished group play with two wins and one draw, with Mexico taking the top spot with a superior goal difference.
 
A win against Mexico in the semi-final will give Canada the opportunity to play for gold and will automatically qualify them for a spot at the FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup Uruguay 2018.
 
“This competition provides a great opportunity for players to experience new styles of play, heat, quick turnarounds between matches, and ultimately perform and flourish under pressure to qualify for a FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup,” said Priestman.
 
Under an aligned Women’s EXCEL Program, the 20 Canadian players have collectively accumulated more than 2,000 player days in Canada Soccer’s women’s youth program. Through three matches, 19 players have featured at the 2018 Concacaf Women’s Under-17 Championship.
 
The FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup Uruguay 2018 runs 13 November to 1 December in Colonia del Sacramento, Montevideo, and Maldonado. From the four remaining Concacaf nations, three will qualify for Uruguay 2018.
