Canada upsets USA in Concacaf U-20 women's final

[YOUTH] Canada upset the USA, 1-0, on a goal by rising Rutgers junior Karla Schacher to win the Concacaf Under-20 Women's Championship Saturday in Puebla, Mexico.

Canada and the U.S. had already qualified for the 2008 FIFA Under-20 Women's World Cup in Chile in late November, and will be joined by Mexico, who won the third-place game against Costa Rica on penalty kicks earlier in the night in the third-place match.

"Today's game was very frustrating," said U.S. head coach Tony DiCicco. "It was one of those games where one defensive breakdown forced us to kind of chase the game. Our team showed great heart, created a lot of opportunities and fought until the end. Give Canada credit, as they never broke. We will have to learn from this game and move on."

Canada was loaded with U.S. collegians. Schacher was one of three current or incoming Rutgers players to start against the USA. Canada's lineup featured senior internationals Sophie Schmidt (Portland) and Jonelle Filigno (Rutgers). Florida State's Erin McNulty earned the shutout.

Fourteen nations have already qualified for the U-20 World Cup, which will be played Nov. 19-Dec. 7 in Chile. They are host Chile; Japan, China and North Korea from Asia; France, Germany, Norway and England from Europe; New Zealand from Oceania; Brazil and Argentina from South America, and Canada, the United States and Mexico from Concacaf.
