TORONTO -- For FIFA and Canadian organizers, next months U-20 Womens World Cup is a test run for the 2015 Womens World Cup. For Canadian coaches, its also a chance to see future and present talent in action. Players on coach Andrew Olivieris under-20 squad, announced Wednesday, who have already featured on John Herdmans senior team include centre backs Kadeisha Buchanan and Rebecca Quinn, fullback Sura Yekka and midfielders Ashley Lawrence and Jessie Fleming. Forward Nichelle Prince made her senior debut in the Four Nations Womens Tournament in China in January 2013, coming off the bench to score against South Korea. Defender Kylie Davis is a veteran of the 2012 U-20 World Cup. For them and their teammates, the U-20 tournament will be a valuable preface to the World Cup if they make that squad -- ensuring they have a taste of what its like to play under the pressure of being the host team. The U-20 tournament is scheduled for Aug. 5-24 in Edmonton, Moncton, Montreal and Toronto. Under Olivieri, Canada went 1-2-0 at the 2012 tournament. The Canadian women failed to advance out of the group stage, thumping Argentina 6-0 before losing 2-1 to Norway and North Korea. The Canadian coach said the 2012 experience has helped shape the preparation for this tournament. With Herdman also serving as high-performance director, consistent coaching approaches at different levels have helped ensure the Canadian women are all on the same page. "Hes been fantastic support the last two years," said Olivieri. Fresh from a July 16-21 camp in Mexico, the Canadian women open the 2014 tournament Aug. 5 at BMO Field with a Group A game against Ghana. They play Finland three days later in Toronto before heading to Montreal for an Aug. 12 date with North Korea. "We know our last match will be an extremely difficult one," Olivieri said of the group play schedule. The opener may be a challenge as well. Ghana made it to the semifinals at the FIFA U-17 tournament in 2012, losing to eventual champion France. The Africans went on to defeat Germany in the third-place match. "They wont be easy," said Olivieri. The Canadians lost to North Korea in the U-17 quarter-finals with the Koreans eventually losing 7-6 to France in a penalty shootout in the final. Such success does not always translate to the next age group, but the U-17 performance of Ghana and North Korea gives the Canadians something to think about. The Finns were the surprise of European qualifying, beating Norway and drawing with Sweden and Germany. "Just to qualify out of Europe definitely signifies they have a quite a bit of quality. It will be quite a difficult match," said Olivieri. It wont get any easier for the Canadian women after pool play, assuming they advance. The top two teams from each pool advance to the quarter-finals, with the Group A survivors taken on likely either the U.S. or Germany from Group B, which also features China and Brazil. The U.S. and Germany have dominated womens soccer at this level, combining to win five of the six previous tournaments. North Korea won in 2006. "We know that our objective going into the tournament is going to be to win a quarter-final. And we have probably the toughest crossover you can ask for," said Olivieri. "But well be ready and well be happy to play Germany or the U.S. or if theres a surprise, Brazil or China. Weve certainly done our work to make sure were as ready as we can be for those matches." The Canadian team will be captained by defender Kinley McNicoll. Kailen Sheridan goes into the tournament as the No. 1 goalie. Olivieri hopes goals will come from both the forwards (Prince and Janine Beckie) and midfielders (Ashley Campbell, Fleming and Lawrence among others). The Americans won in 2012, defeating Germany. The U.S. also won in 2008 and 2002, when it defeated Canada and Christine Sinclair 1-0 after extra time before 47,784 at Edmontons Commonwealth Stadium to claim the inaugural then (under-19) title. Germany won in 2004 and 2010, when it became the only host country to hoist the trophy. Group C is made up of England, Mexico, Nigeria and South Korea while Group D consists of Costa Rica, France, New Zealand and Paraguay. The quarter-finals are shared by all four host cities, with Moncton and Montreal hosting the semifinals. Montreal will stage the final and third-place match. Canada will play Mexico and England in friendlies in advance of the tournament. The two final Canadian cuts were forwards Chelsea Harkins and Sessen Stevens, both from Vancouver Whitecaps FC Girls Elite. --- Canadas U-20 Team Goalkeepers: Kailen Sheridan, Clemson University; Marie-Joelle Vandal, Dynamo de Quebec; Rylee Foster, Woodbridge SC.

Buoyed by a successful World Cup in Brazil and UEFA President Michel Platini opting not to stand in next years election, the 78-year-old Blatter believes he has the backing to win again. "I will make an official declaration definitely in September now when we have the executive committee," Blatter said in a pre-recorded interview shown Monday at the SoccerEx conference. "I will inform the executive committee. Its a question of respect also to say then to the football family, Yes I will be ready. I will be a candidate." In response to FIFAs worst corruption scandals, Blatter had pledged before his re-election in 2011 that his current term would be his last. But the Swiss official, who took over as FIFA president in 1998, has been edging toward another run ever since, with no major rival emerging to challenge him. Despite ongoing corruption scandals engulfing FIFA and opposition within UEFA, Blatter appears to have retained the support of most national federations. Victory in the May election would extend Blatters mandate to a 21st year in 2019 when he would be 83. "A mission is never finished, and my mission is not finished," said Blatter, who has previously stopped short of confirming his candidacy. "I got (from) the last congress in Sao Paulo not only the impression but the support of the majority, a huge majority of national associations asking Please go on, be our president also in future." Any potential challengers must have worked in football for at least two of the last five years, and have until late January to gather the support of at least five national associations. The secret ballot is scheduled for May 29 in Zurich, and former FIFA international relations director Jerome Champagne is the only other person to say he will stand. FIFA does not have term limits, but FIFA Vice-President Prince Ali bin Al-Hussein of Jordan is for them. "Its always good to have new ideas, new opinions and new blood," Prince Ali said Monday at SoccerEx. "I do believe in term limits. You serve the time you have and thats that. I think people would much happier knowing, even as people to aspire to a position, when they end." Blatter has seemed more willing in recent years to heed calls for change, introducing goal-line technology and strengthening racism sanctions. FIFA, though, still struggles with corruption scandals discrediting many former executive committee members. Blatter, however, has emerged largely unscathed -- despite often being booed when he faces fans at major matches.dddddddddddd "(I) just ask for a little bit more respect and fair play and perhaps also the truth, although this is not so easy because it is not such good information," Blatter said. "If you ask me how I deal with that, at the beginning it was very heavy and I was suffering. "But now my situation has been cleared and cleaned by all possible means outside of FIFA, inside of FIFA. So therefore I am confident and I am going forward as an optimist." FIFA faces a turbulent future as it deals with the fallout from awarding the 2018 World Cup to Russia and the 2022 tournament to Qatar. FIFA last week received three reports from ethics investigator Michael Garcia and his team after their year-long probe of alleged corruption in the bidding contests. If the Middle Easts first World Cup is not taken from Qatar, FIFA must determine how the event can be moved from the summer heat. Blatter cancelled a planned visit to SoccerEx in Manchester to stay in Zurich, where football leaders were meeting Monday to discuss the potential disruption to the international calendar caused by starting the 2022 World Cup in January or November. "We have already said we cannot play in summer in this heat in Qatar, then we have to play in winter," Blatter said. "Now we are making this consultation." The more pressing challenge is resisting calls from some British and German politicians to take the World Cup from Russia or boycott the tournament as punishment for President Vladimir Putins intervention in Ukraine. "A boycott in sport never has had any benefit," Blatter said. "Let us wait and see the geo-political situation and FIFA shall not intervene with politics. But for the time being we are working with Russia." Looking further ahead, Blatter offered encouragement for a bid by the United States or Canada for the 2026 World Cup "If you look at the rotation of the World Cup then it should go back to Africa or go to the Americas," Blatter said. "As we have been in South America, I think North America has a better chance than South America .... perhaps theres a big commercial opportunity arising now in the United States because of the tremendous television audiences that are booming and that the World Cup has also encouraged in its domestic game as well. "We did well with football when it first went to the United States but the opportunities are bigger now."
