by Jamie Geisler

OTTAWA – As Football Canada prepares for the upcoming U20 World Junior Championship in Edmonton June 20-30, the selection of the Top 100 athletes that will attend the training camp in Calgary, Alberta is pivotal. From these players that travel to this camp, the final rosters for Team Canada 1 and 2 will be created. Due to the vast talent across the country that has been identified, it has been no easy task to narrow it down to 100.

Today, Football Canada is releasing the names of the top defensive athletes that will be continuing the pathway towards the World Junior Championship as the team aims for an unprecedented “three-peat” on the global stage. The top offensive athletes will be released the following day.

“Selecting the top 100 football players from across Canada to compete for a historic chance to win gold on home soil has been an incredible journey. I want to extend a heartfelt thank you to our coaches whose dedication and hard work were pivotal in this process. To every athlete who attended our selection camps, your commitment and talent have truly impressed us. Now, as we embark on this remarkable journey, the real work begins.” Said Warren Craney, Head Coach of Team Canada 1.
