Canada Soccer have announced their squad for the upcoming Women’s Under-17 camp in Portugal. Canada’s 21-player squad, coached by Emma Humphries, will come together for a training camp in Troia, Portugal, from 14-19 November, and then travel to Lisbon to play Portugal on 21 and 23 November. Both matches will take place at Cidade do Futebol, the National Training Centre for the Portuguese Football Association.

“I’m really excited for this camp! We have a talented group of young players that are ready for a test against an experienced European opposition,” said Emma Humphries, Canada Soccer’s Women’s U-17 National Team Head Coach. “This camp is all about assessing where the team and players are at and growing from the experience as we head towards the Concacaf qualification tournament in the new year.”

This will be the first time Canada Soccer’s Women’s Under-17 team has come together since qualifying for the 2024 Concacaf Women’s Under-17 Championship this past August, when Canada finished first in the three-nation round-robin Group F series by winning 21:0 against Dominica and 9:0 against Bermuda. The 2024 Concacaf Women’s Under-17 Championship will act as a qualifying competition for the 2024 FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup, and will see Canada face Puerto Rico on 2 February, Panama on 4 February, and the United States on 6 February in Toluca, Mexico. ​

This 21-player roster will see 17 returning players from the U17 Concacaf W Preliminary Round earlier this year, with the addition of four new faces in goalkeeper Sierra Gallant (NS), defenders Bridget Mutipula (NS) and Katherine Ozard, and midfielder Emily Wong.

“It is great for 2 players who have been in the Nova Scotia high performance leagues and programs to be representing Canada at the youth international level, Sierra having already been in the national team program before and Bridget making her first appearances,” said Mike Ayyash, Whitecaps FC Academy Centre Technical Director. “The experience they will gain from being exposed to this level of training and competition is very valuable to continue pushing their development. It is also a testament to the work they did with their local clubs and coaches over the years and the opportunities provided through the pathway to get them seen by national team staff. We wish both the very best as they take this next step in their soccer journey.”

This camp will allow some of Canada’s exceptional young players to be together for 10 days and work towards the Concacaf Women’s Under-17 Championship, the FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup, and ultimately Canada Soccer’s Women’s National Team.
