Canadian national women’s U-20 coach Andrew Olivieri has announced the roster for a training camp that begins Tuesday in Denmark.

Nineteen women who will be eligible to compete in next year’s U-20 Women’s World Cup — which Canada hosts — will train and play friendlies against Norway on July 31 and Denmark on August 2.

“Scheduling three matches in such a short turnaround reflects a similar schedule to tournament play and the demands these players will experience throughout the rest of their international careers,” Olivieri said in a release issued by the Canadian Soccer Association.

On the roster is Kadeisha Buchanan, the teenager who has become a revelation for the Canadian senior women’s team. Over the last year, Buchanan has become a major part of senior women’s team coach John Herdman’s plans, and has the best odds of anyone when it comes to playing in both the U-20 Women’s World Cup and the Women’s World Cup.

Kailen Sheridan, the Toronto Lady Lynx keeper who led all of the W-League in goals-against-average in 2013, is on the roster.

The Laval Cometes will lose three players from their roster due to U-20 national team callups. Included in the group is Amandine Pierre-Louis, who scored the penalty shootout winner that eliminated the Ottawa Fury in this past weekend’s Central Conference final, will be off to Denmark. The W-League championship begins later this week in Bradenton, Fla., and the losses will impact Laval’s ability to compete for the title.

The Cometes enter the Final Four as the No. 1 seed, and face the No. 4 Carolina Elite Cobras on Friday.
