VAUGHAN, Ontario – It is obvious by just one conversation with the coaching staff of the Virginia Commonwealth University women's soccer program how excited they are about the incoming recruiting class for the fall season.
Even before the nine signees arrive in Richmond, one of them is already earning recognition as Brianne Moore (Halifax, Nova Scotia) recently earned a spot on Canada's U-20 roster for their second identification camp.
"Bri shares many of the same qualities we have
seen in some of the other Canadians who have contributed to our
program," Co-Head Coach Tiffany Roberts Sahaydak said. "She has a
terrific competitive spirit and real girt about her. She has an
incredible work ethic and skill on both sides of the ball. We will
certainly be looking for her to strengthen our possession in the
midfield and build-up in the attack."
Carolina Morace, Head Coach of Canada's U-20 team, named the roster in early May for the four day camp that ran from May 13-16 with an exhibition contest on May 16 concluding the camp.
The U-20 squad is just starting to prepare for the next FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup cycle in 2012. Players selected for this camp are all born 1992 or 1993 and are thus eligible for the 2012 CONCACAF Women's Under-20 Championship. That CONCACAF championship will serve as the qualification route for the FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup 2012.
