    Canada U-17 women to face Mexico twice

    OTTAWA, Canada -- Canada will face Mexico in a two-match Under-17 women's friendly series Dec. 16 and 18 as part of its nine-day camp in Mexico City.Head coach Bryan Rosenfeld has selected 22 players for the trip.

    "It will be a good challenge for this group to have to play in altitude with a noon kickoff in Mexico City," commented Rosenfeld, who guided Canada to its first CONCACAF Women's Under-17 Championship title last year in Costa Rica.

    The Canadian squad features 19 players born in 1995 and three born in 1996 (Jordane Carvery, Julia Liguori and Taylor Pryce).While 16 of the selection have previous experience in the national set-up, six are making their youth camp debuts.

    Ashley Lawrence, the most veteran invitee, has taken part in more than 70 days of Canadian youth activities since 2010. The recently named 2011 Canadian U-17 Player of the Year is also the lone holdover from Canada's participation in the 2010 FIFA U-17 Women's World Cup in Trinidad and Tobago.

    Canada is preparing for the 2012 CONCACAF Women's Under-17 Championship, which runs May 2-13 in Guatemala City, Guatemala. All the matches in the eight-team competition will be played at the Estadio Cementos Progreso. The top three teams from the competition will qualify for the 2012 FIFA U-17 Women's World Cup in Azerbaijan.
