log_de_la_copa_femenina_sub-20_canada_2014On Tuesday, the schedule for the 2014 U-20 Women’s World Cup will be unveiled in Montreal. Andrew Olivieri, the coach of the women’s U-20 team, will be at Montreal’s city hall safe in the knowledge that his squad had a pretty decent summer camp. On Friday, the Canadian U-20s wrapped up a July camp with a 1-1 draw with Denmark’s U-19 side. Ashley Campbell scored for Canada in the draw against Denmark, which followed a 1-0 win over Norway and a 6-1 triumph over the Ballerup Skovlunde club. Olivieri told the CanadaSoccer.com site that, while the U-20 World Cup is around the corner, the reason for the Denmark camp and the friendlies was to prepare the players for longer national-team careers. “A lot of people have spoken about the U-20’s in 2014 – but the main goal for our entire youth program is to develop top-level international players for our senior team,” said Olivieiri. With Montreal getting the chance to host the schedule announcement, it’s a safe bet that Quebec’s largest city will be getting some of the plum matches in 2014; a trade-off considering that Edmonton got the most 2015 Women’s World Cup games — including Canada’s first two group-stage matches — and Vancouver got the final.
