Venezuela will play Canada in Women’s U17 World Cup quarters

Posted by Dubraswka Aguilar on March 24, 2014

After a brilliant first round, Venezuela (3-0-0) is focused on its rival for quarterfinals, Canada (1-2-0), willing to keep making history and move forward in the Women’s U17 FIFA World Cup. The match is due next Thursday at 3:30 pm in San Jose, Costa Rica.

Venezuela comes from defeating Italy in its last game 1-0 with a goal scored by Deyna Castilian to give the top spot to the her team. It was a tough match for the Vinotinto and also has been one of the hardest opponents it has had to face.

Although the Europeans were misguided at definition, the South Americans drew strength to take all three points.

Previously, Venezuela had won in the debut to Costa Rica (3-0) and afterwards to Zambia (4-0) to decisively become one of the most interesting teams in the World Cup.

Its technical director, the Panamanian Kenneth Zseremeta, has done an important work with the group and is looking to make history by trying to get between the top four of the competition.

Castellano has been the most prominent player by being the leading scorer of the tournament with four goals. She has shown an impressive ability as footballer.

Meanwhile, Gabriela Garcia is not far behind; the tall attacker has three goals and is also one of the important figures for Venezuela.

In the creation Lourdes Moreno has shown her talent and also scored in the debut of Venezuela.

The national team ended the first part of the event with eight goals scored and none against so its defensive line has been effective until now.
