January 2019 #CanWNT training camp - Spain

Recommended Posts

China

South Korea

Nigeria

Canada

First posted by @tc-in-bc (well done!) in the news thread, but if the media in all 3 other countries are reporting (including the new city it will be hosted in) then it's time to start a thread!

To be hosted in Meizhou this time.

I would guess here:

This stadium is only 7km or so from the centre of Meizhou City.

 

EDIT:

SO the #CanWNT is playing in Spain and not China, Romania has taken our spot in China.

Ok, I've turned this thread into the January Camp thread (or else our World Cup thread will simply get too long before the tournament even starts).

1) I know nothing about Vanessa Gilles. Anybody follow her career so far and have some thoughts?

2) Thoughts on Evelyne Viens still not getting a call:

3) One assumes that the training game vs the Swiss will be in Rota (where their Camp is). They are bringing in some new young players to prep for Euro-qualifiers for 2021. http://www.football.ch/SFV/Nationalteams/A-Team-Frauen/News/wechsel-neuigkeiten-zum-jahresbeginn.aspx

4) Anyone going to go to either game?

The game vs Norway should be open to the public: http://twitter.com/LaMangaClub

Good call on the thread.

Funny thing is, Norway knew three weeks ago and the week before Christmas they were playing Scotland.  

Their U23 team will also be training in La Manga as well at the same time and playing Belgium. With the U20's CONCACAF early exit it would have been a great opportunity to send a U23 team to play them both as well.

Just took a quick peek and could be wrong but thought that was mostly goalkeepers. If you already have three senior goalkeepers you can't bring in five, so it's a lot more difficult.  That's one of the reasons the U23 programs other countries run are a good gap for players in the 17-22 range. They keep them motivated at a high level and gaining international experience so when the older players cap out the country has a full crop of options.

Can anyone explain to me the purpose of the closed door training game? (Do the games have different sub rules, less pressure because there are no crowds, etc)? And how closed door is it? Do videos of the 'games' surface afterwards generally?

Curious

Closed door in the sense that they are not selling tickets or bother streaming it. If you show up, they won't bother you (like for the last matches the #CanWNT and #CanMNT had in Spain).
