Oceania qualifiers in Papua-New Guinea, April 21-23-25:

Only four teams so far:

PNG, Australia, Solomon Islands, Vanuatu

UPDATE:
Australia thrashed PNG and Solomon Islands, 14-1 and 13-0 to qualify to represent Oceania.

I think Vanuatu was a no-show.

Hopes high for Canucks ahead of women's world under-19 soccer championship
by Neil Davidson, Canadian Press
Thursday, October 14, 2004

The road to the soccer World Cup has been dotted by disappointment for the Canadian men. The senior women stumbled at the final obstacle before the Athens Olympics.

But the future looks bright for Canada as it prepares for the world under-19 women's championship next month in Thailand. In fact, Canada finds itself in the unusual position of being one of the favourites.

"I think the players feel that too, which can always be a good thing or a bad thing depending on how you take it," coach Ian Bridge said Wednesday. "We've done lots of goal-setting sessions over the last year, even 18 months, to talk about this tournament," he added. "We believe we can win gold. We've set that as a goal."

The Canadian women, runners-up to the U.S. in the inaugural world championship two years ago in Edmonton, are going to the 12-team competition as regional champions having taken their revenge on the Americans in qualifying in CONCACAF, which covers North and Central America and the Caribbean.

Canada will be led by Kara Lang and Brittany Timko, who have 75 caps at the senior level between them. Others to watch include Veronique Maranda and Aysha Jamani and goalkeeper Stacey VanBoxmeer.

And there is youth. Forward Jodi-Ann Robinson is 15 while defender Sophie Schmidt is 16. Several under-15 players are still in contention for the few positions left on the squad.

Despite their talent and track record, the Canadians still face a tough road at the tournament. A supposed benign draw, courtesy of winning the CONCACAF region, turned a lot nastier when Spain upset Germany to win the European championship. That put the Germans in Canada's group as the second-place European team, along with Australia and Thailand.

The Germans had been considered a lock to win the European title, outscoring their opposition 23-0 en route to the final - including a 7-0 win over Spain.

"They were the strongest team in the tournament," Bridge said of the Germans at the European championship. "But they just had a very poor performance in the final against Spain." Spain won 2-1 on a 52nd-minute free kick.

The Germans were left with the consolation prize of 24 goals in five games, a scoring record in a UEFA finals tournament for both men and women at any level.

Group B in Thailand consists of Brazil, China, Italy and Nigeria while Group C features South Korea, Russia, Spain and the U.S.

The presence of Germany means there will be a battle for first place in Group A, a position that carries a more favourable quarter-final. The group winner plays a third-place team in one of the other pools while the runner-up meets the No. 2 team from Group B.

The semifinals are tough however you cut it. Even if Canada wins its group and then its quarter-final, a semifinal with the U.S. could await.

Bridge points to Brazil as a tournament force. Players like Marta, Renata Costa, Kelly and Cristiane were all part of the Brazilian team at the first under-19 tournament as well as the Athens Olympics. The Brazilian women made it to the Olympic final, losing in overtime to the Americans.

The Canadian coach is also wary of Australia in his group. "It's the one team we've not seen to be able to scout," he said. "And it's the game you play first so that's always the tough one."

Canada opens Nov. 10 against the Aussies in Bangkok.

Bridge has already named 17 members of his 21-woman roster. The final four places will be decided by Oct. 22 when the final squad has to be declared. Several U.S.-based players will join the camp next week.

"It's been a great experience," Bridge said. "We've had over 45 training sessions and about 12 games in the five weeks. They've been as close to professional as they can be."

The Canadian teams leaves Nov. 1 for Thailand. The tournament runs Nov. 10-27.
----------------------
Canadian Under-19 Roster

Goal: Stephanie Labbe; Stacey VanBoxmeer.

Defenders: Tanya Dennis; Justine Labrecque; Kara Lang; Katie Radchuk; Emily Zurrer; Sari Raber; Sophie Schmidt.

Midfielders: Brittany Timko; Amanda Cicchini; Veronique Maranda; Kate Bazos; Selenia Iachelli.

Forwards: Josee Belanger; Aysha Jamani; Jodi-Ann Robinson.

Four players to be named later.

Addendum

The final four announced Oct. 22 were Sydney Leroux, a forward from Surrey, B.C., who only turned 14 in May; Robyn Gayle, an 18-year-old defender from Mississauga, Ont.; Deanna Everrett, a 16-year-old forward from Oakville, Ont.; and Erin McNulty, a goalkeeper from Winnipeg who turned 15 in June.

Nov. 16 results:

Group A:
Germany 3-3 Canada
Germany wins the Group on goal difference; Canada will meet China in the QF.

Australia 5-0 Thailand
Australia's goal difference rises to 0; they will now probably advance as one of the best third-place teams.

Group B:
China 1-2 Brazil

Italy 1-1 Nigeria

A late equalizer is enough to guarantee advancement for Nigeria as one of the best third-place teams.
Brazil edges out China for first place on goals scored.

Canada lost 3-1 to a superior China side.

All four goals came as a direct result of goalkeeping errors.

Although FIFA records an attendance of 5400 for this match, there could not have been more than 500 people there.
