Canada finished the FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup India 2022 after a 0-2-1 record with two draws and a loss in the October group phase. Canada drew 1:1 in their first match against France, lost 0:4 to Japan and were eliminated after a 1:1 draw to first-time FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup participants Tanzania to finish the tournament in 13th place. From Group D, Japan and Tanzania will head to the quarter-finals to face Colombia and Spain from Group C.
This tournament provided a great opportunity to gain valuable experience on the players’ pathways to the Women’s National Team. Canada’s three players of the match were goalkeeper Coralie Lallier as well as goalscorers Annabelle Chukwu and Amanda Allen, who were a strong presence on Canada’s front line. Overall, this young team had a strong performance and will use this experience as a building block for the future.
