As the Canadians prepare for the CONCACAF Women’s World Cup Qualifiers, the team will train together for approximately 7 straight weeks. Here is a detailed look at their upcoming plans, including a home game at BMO Field on September 30 against China.
The Canadian Soccer Association (CSA) recently announced details of the Women’s National Team’s (World No. 13) plans as they prepare for the upcoming CONCACAF Women’s World Cup Qualifiers in hopes of advancing to the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2011 in Germany.
The last time the Canadian squad was together, a 10 day camp was held in Gaithersburg, Maryland May 2010. Canada played an exhibition game against the Washington Freedom of Women’s Professional Soccer (WPS) on May 23 at the Maryland SoccerPlex, which resulted in a 3-3 tie. Midfielder Kelly Parker led the team with 3 assists, setting up goals by Christina Julien, Christine Sinclair, and Jodi-Ann Robinson. Training continued as the team relocated to Norway for a week-long camp in early June, playing an international friendly against the World No. 6 at Fart Stadium in Hamar that ended in a 1-1 draw. Jos
