USA U-17 Women’s National Team clinches FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup spot with dominating 3-0 win over Canada




SANTO DOMINGO, Dominican Republic (May 6, 2022) The United States U-17 Women’s National Team clinched their spot at the 2022 FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup and advanced to the Concacaf Women’s U-17 Championship final after defeating the Canada 3-0 with a dominating effort that saw the young Americans build up a 29-3 shooting margin.

A brace from striker Melina Rebimbas and a goal from striker Onyeka Gamero highlighted a classy and appealing display of rhythmic, attacking football and defensive pressure.

With the victory, the United States will now face Mexico in the championship game at Estadio Olmpico Flix Snchez on Sunday, May 8 at 5 p.m. ET (Fox Soccer Plus/ViX). Mexico beat Puerto Rico 5-0 in the other semi-final to earn their World Cup berth and a berth in the final. Puerto Rico and Canada will play the third-place match on May 8 at 2 p.m. ET (Fox Soccer Plus / ViX) for the third and final Concacaf spot for the upcoming FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup in India.

The United States immediately took control of the game, sending the ball with speed and skill. The United States launched waves of attacks against the Canadians, particularly on the right flank as defender Gisele Thompson and Gamero combined to terrorize the defence. At 18and minute, the work of the United States paid off with an opening goal after Rebimbas received a pass from Nicollette Kiorpes on the left side of the penalty area. She turned towards goal and buried a left-footed shot from seven yards into the bottom right corner.

Despite a first half in which the United States held 80% of the ball and outshot Canada 11-3, the Canadian defense managed to limit the United States to just one goal before the break.

The United States came out for the second half in much the same way, limiting the Canadians’ time on the ball with a great team in defense while playing most of the game in their attacking half. Rebimbas doubled the lead at the 58and minute, combining with midfielder Lauren Martinho deep inside the penalty area on the left side before finishing between the Canadian keeper and the left post.

Twenty minutes later, Gamero added his name to the scoresheet and put the game to bed – after combining with substitute Amalia Villarreal to bury a powerful left-footed strike from around 12 yards out that skidded into the bottom corner left of the net.

In the end, the United States had 14 nil shots on target for Canada, retained 79% of possession and had a 16-0 margin on corner kicks. Canadian goalie Coralie Lallier had an excellent game, making 11 saves in total.
