    OTTAWA, Ontario - University of Colorado soccer player Sarah Kinzner has been selected to her home country Canada's U-20 team to compete at the CONCACAF Women's U-20 Championship. Canada is vying for a spot in the 2016 FIFA U-20 World Cup. CONCACAF competition will take place Dec. 3-13 in Honduras.

    Canada's 20-player squad will head to Honduras on Monday and will play three matches in San Pedro Sula against Trinidad and Tobago (Dec. 3), Jamaica (Dec. 5) and Honduras (Dec. 7). From two four-team groups, the top four will advance to the semifinals on Dec. 11, and the finals and third-place match on Dec. 13. The top three teams will advance to the 2016 FIFA U-20 World Cup.

    Congrats to Ms. Kinzner!
    (Forgot to move this to the Olympic Sports thread a few days ago. )

    AND, further congrats are now in order as she was named the "CONCACAF ‎player-of-the-match" after scoring the 1st goal in Canada's 2-0 opening match win over Trinidad and Tobago. (Per article at http://www.canadasoccer.com/canada-opens-papua-new-guinea-journey-with-three-points-p158928 .)
    (Highlight of her goal goes quickly by at ~ the 20 second mark of this highlight video-
    .)

    (Also of note- per http://www.concacaf.com/category/under-20s-women/game-detail/254095 , looks like newest 2016 Buff verbal commitment Camilla Shymka saw a little playing time, substituting in in the 81st minute.)

    CU could do a lot worse than getting a pipe line into Canadian Woman's soccer

    Replays of her 2 goals so far this Championship. (Beautiful bending free kick for the goal yesterday against Jamaica.)

    Canada finished second to the US in the tourney and has qualified for the Women's U-20 World Cup next November in Papua New Guinea.
    There's speculation on some soccer message boards that collegiate players who want to play for their respective national teams will take a redshirt next fall. Hope that's not the case for our two Canadians.
