Five CF Montréal Academy Women's Program Players Called up by Canada's U17 Team
MONTREAL - CF Montréal Academy players Khadijah Cissé, Inès Nourani, Juliette Perreault, Liana Tarasco and Marée-Anne Van Doesburg have been called up by the Canadian U17 national team for a training camp in Troia, Portugal, from November 16 to 18. They will then play two friendly games in Lisbon against Portugal on November 21 and 23.
The five players currently play for the CF Montréal Academy Women's Program, cofounded by BMO, in the semi-professional provincial league Ligue1 Québec. They all took part last August in the U17 Women's Concacaf qualifier where Canada won a spot for the Concacaf Championship next February in Mexico.
Cissé is a 15-year-old goalkeeper from CS Longueuil. Nourani, a 16-year-old fullback, was trained at Royal Sélect de Beauport. 16-year-old Perreault (Celtix du Haut-Richelieu), Tarasco (CS Les Étoiles de l'Est) and Van Doesburg (Lakeshore SC) all play as midfielders.
