    This article seems to confirm what we already suspect, Canada won't go to the Pan American Games in Lima: http://www.zocalo.com.mx/new_site/articulo/tri-femenil-se-enfrentara-a-holanda-en-amistoso http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Football_at_the_2019_Pan_American_Games

    Gold Cup 2019

    The Gold Cup groups will be announced on Wednesday, April 10th. http://www.tvmax-9.com/somoslasele/Definida-anuncio-grupos-Copa-Oro_0_5237476293.html So when we end up in Group D with the Yanks, @socceronly can start planning a bus to Cleveland!

    Canadian Dual Nationals

    My guess is Cristián Gutiérrez. 1) His brother is in the system. There is a (slim chance) both twins could play together on the U23 team later this year. 2) Based on the possible player pool/depth within Chile, having fallen from a good youth prospect to mid-table Chilean team (where he was far from a regular starter), he may not make the Chile Olympic U23 team a year from now: https://www.cdf.cl/cdf/sudamericano-sub-20/los-67-jugadores-de-los-ultimos-sudamericanos-sub-20/2019-01-28/095026.html

    Gold Cup 2019

    Horace Reid says the June 17th game is still planned to be be played in the Caribbean! http://rjrnewsonline.com/sports/reid-advises-caribbean-islands-to-take-nations-league-seriously My take: The June 17th is a Monday. Double-header group stage Gold Cup games mean that, during the week, the first game either starts too early or the second game finishes too late for casual fans and families with kids . Therefore they will NOT make that match day a double-header. It will be Jamaica vs ??? in Kingston at the same time as Honduras plays ??? in the Dallas area. CONCACAF can keep their promise of putting a crucial Gold Cup game in the Caribbean and not lose as much money because depending on the opponent they put against Honduras, they can likely fill Toyota Stadium in Texas. Win$ for all.

    Gold Cup 2019

    The latest rumour is that CONCACAF had studied the possibility of playing the first of Honduras' games in Honduras, and then decided that was a no go...and then looked at the possibility of putting that game in the Caribbean...but has since decided (for rea$on$ unknown) that the game will be played at Toyota Stadium in Frisco Texas. So the Dallas area will host games from two different groups. http://www.diez.hn/laseleccion/1256518-498/seleccion-de-honduras-conoce-sede-partidos-copa-oro-concacaf-2019-houston-dallas-fabian-coito

    Spain will play their last friendly match before the WWC in Pamplona. We are one of the 3 nations being considered. http://www.marca.com/futbol/futbol-femenino/2019/01/23/5c47aedc22601d257a8b4586.html http://www.wikipedia.org/wiki/El_Sadar_Stadium

    January 2019 #CanWNT training camp - Spain

    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).

    Kosovar Sadiki

    With that name, it's true that you would expect to lose him to Kosovo. Look a this article: http://www.gsh.al/2019/01/08/kosovar-sadiki-zgjedh-te-luaje-per-shqiperine/ Instead of Sadiki, they put of a pic of Millar at the NZ game in Spain last year by mistake. 😂

    2019 Algarve Cup

    @tc-in-bc & @Vic , might as well start a new thread for the Algarve Cup. As was posted already by @tc-in-bc : http://www.fpf.pt/News/Todas-as-notícias/Notícia/news/19966 Same 5 stadiums as last year: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2018_Algarve_Cup With the new format that is based on groups of 3, it would seem that only 3 matches will be played but on 4 match days. Based on the CSA information: http://canadasoccer.com/canada-begins-fifa-women-s-world-cup-france-2019-campaign-with-two-matches-in-europe-followed-by-the-algarve-cup--p161993 In our case: Wednesday February 27th vs Iceland Friday March 1st vs Scotland Monday March 4th - no match for us Wednesday March 6th - opponent TBD based on placement. Scotland will actually play Iceland in Spain in a January friendly, so their fixture will be a rematch.

    January 2019 #CanWNT training camp - Spain

    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: http://www.813area.com/sports/evelyne-viens-the-best-athlete-in-tampa-bay-usf-womens-soccer.html http://ici.radio-canada.ca/nouvelle/1127264/ncaa-soccer-universitaire-evelyne-viens-south-florida-buteuse 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

    The Importance of Ricardo José Araújo Ferreira

    It's likely as bad as it first looked. He will need another operation. http://www.record.pt/futebol/futebol-nacional/liga-nos/sp--braga/detalhe/ricardo-ferreira-adiou-a-renovacao
