Canada has finalized its roster for the CONCACAF U-17 women’s championships.

Coach Bev Priestman confirmed the final roster on Tuesday. Canada begins the CONCACAF tourney on Halloween, with a date in Jamaica against Guatemala.

Only the top two teams from the tournament get to the ’17 Women’s World Cup in Costa Rica, as the hosts have already got one of the CONCACAF slots. That means Canada has to get to the final.

Fullback Sura Yekka is just 16, and was born in 1997, meaning she’d be eligible to play for Canada’s U-17 team. But she’s in Edmonton right now, with the senior team as it prepares to face South Korea on Wednesday. So, if there’s a notable name not on the roster for the U-17s, It’s Yekka, simply for the fact that she’s already been identified by national women’s coach John Herdman to be fast-tracked through the program.
