At the media event in Edmonton, Canadian players were Erin McLeod, Carmelina Moscato and Christine Sinclair, all of whom were FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup all-stars at the inaugural event in Canada in 2002. Eleven years ago, that trio helped Canada win a silver medal and helped the tournament set a still-standing record of 47,784 fans in the final, capturing the hearts of a nation.
“Playing at home is an incredible experience,” said Christine Sinclair, Canada’s captain and recipient of the adidas Golden Shoe and adidas Golden Ball in the 2002 competition. “We are confident Canadians will come out and support the up-and-coming Canadian stars on the U-20 team as they did for us in 2002.”
“As we see looking back on the heroics of previous FIFA U-20 Women's World Cups, the emerging talents in Canada could well go on to become the stars of tomorrow,” said Mr. Montagliani. “We are confident Canadians from coast to coast will be watching with interest and excitement as the players aim to establish themselves on the international scene.”
