Clarke’s goal gets Canada oh so close to QF berth at U-17 Women’s World Cup

Summer Clarke
Summer Clarke, the kid sister of Vancouver Whitecap Caleb Clarke, did her part to help Canada nudge towards the elimination stages of the U-17 Women’s World Cup. Clarke’s goal was the difference as Canada beat Colombia 1-0 in Azerbaijan on Tuesday. Barring an upset of massive proportions in Canada’s final group-stage game, the win should be enough to put the girls into the knockout stages. Canada and Nigeria both have four points from their two Group A matches. Colombia, in third, has three. Canada will be guaranteed one of the two top spots in the group — and a spot in the quarter-finals — if it wins or draws its final round-robin match against Azerbaijan. So far, Azerbaijan hasn’t won a game. It hasn’t scored in either of its two matches. It has given up 15 goals. Clarke got the decider after a nice run down from the wing and a subsequent centring pass from Nichelle Prince. That moment of magic will likely be the thing that gets Canada into the next round, even if there is still 90 more minutes of group-stage action to play.
