For Kicks Podcast, Episode 19: U20 Women’s World Cup recap

Canada met defeat at the FIFA U20 Women’s World Cup in Papua New Guinea in November. However, not all was lost — it was valuable learning experience for what was a very young roster. In this episode we talk about:

  • Canada’s performance in the group stage vs. Spain, Nigeria and Japan
  • updates on the European leagues and the NCAA
  • news about the Algarve Cup, to which Canada will return as reigning champions!

In our next episode we’re celebrating our podcast’s one year anniversary! We’ll celebrate what a great year this was for us by talking about what a great year it was for Canadian women’s soccer. But, we don’t just want to talk about our favourite moments — we want to hear from fans everywhere so we can share all our favourite moments!
