Canada returns from U-20 championship


Canada has returned from the 2009 CONCACAF Men's Under-20 Championship after an early elimination knocked it out of the competition. The Canadian team finished third in its four-team group, one place back of a qualification spot for the FIFA U-20 World Cup Egypt 2009.

"I would like to take this opportunity to say that it was a honour for me to lead the Canadian team," said head coach Tony Fonseca. "The players were very respectful, committed and worked hard. I felt that they really gave everything they had."

Canada posted one win and two losses in the round-robin action at Marvin Lee Stadium in Macoya, Trinidad & Tobago. After losing its opening match 0:1 to host Trinidad & Tobago, Canada came back and won 2:0 over Mexico. Needing a win in its final match against Costa Rica, Canada pushed forward but fell 1:2 to the eventual CONCACAF champions.

Canada returns home from CONCACAF U-17


Canada’s men’s U-17 team has safely returned from the 2009 CONCACAF Men’s Under-17 Championship in Tijuana, Mexico. The team played three matches at the Estadio Caliente before it was eliminated in the preliminary round. The team played well against Honduras, USA and Cuba, but ultimately came up short after running into some bad luck and failing to convert on countless scoring opportunities.

'We knew the first game was going to be very important against Honduras because getting a win in that first game would set you up for the rest of the tournament,' said coach Sean Fleming. 'It was a tie, which was a fair result considering both performances. As it turned out, that first game was huge. We could have had a win in that first game and it would have been significant going into our last game.'

Canada, whose title sponsor is BMO, was one of eight teams that competed in the CONCACAF Men’s Under-17 Championship from 21-26 April in Tijuana, Mexico. Along with USA and Honduras, Costa Rica and Mexico qualified for the FIFA U-17 World Cup Nigeria 2009.

'Overall, I was very happy with the composure and confidence that our players showed under the trying times,' said Coach Fleming.
